Happy Easter 2023


From the beginning of the Sacred Scriptures to the end, we see God’s passionate desire to heal and save everyone. Jesus descends to the darkest depths to redeem the lost.

More amazing still, from among this same humanity God seeks his most intimate collaborators to share with him the never-ending creation of a world where his self-sacrificing love rules.

In our lacerated world troubled by division and strife, may the Lord Jesus draw us into the fullness of his risen life.
