Hi everybody, Bishop Callahan here. Christ is Risen! He is Risen Indeed! Alleluia!
As we enter into the season of Easter, our hearts are drawn into the mystery of the Eucharist. We celebrate the life, death and resurrection of Jesus, all historical facts that form the basis of our Catholic Faith. The Church teaches us that Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever. Let Him invigorate your life. Let Him bring comfort to your soul. And let Him animate your actions; living as children of God.
Jesus’ real presence in the Eucharist is the Good News of Easter; He has been raised from the dead and is with us until the end of time. The power of the Eucharist will transform our lives and provide the necessary hope in our ever changing world.
The first witnesses of the Resurrection were compelled to share the Good News. We too are called to go out to the whole world and tell the Good News!
Easter is the day when everything changed—God clearly showed His victory over sin and death; winning for us our eternal salvation.
This Easter Season, stay close to Jesus and His Mother Mary. Give witness to the Gospel messages and be ready to receive the love and mercy only God can give.
Blessed Easter to you – and I’ll see you at Sunday Mass!
