HE IS RISEN, ALLELUIA

If Christ is not risen, then our faith in essence has no meaning. Easter is the fulfilment of all that Jesus, as Son of God, came to bring us. “I have come so that they may have life and have it to the full”, (Jn 10:10).

The Paschal Mystery, which is at the heart of the Christian message, is Jesus, who through his birth, life, suffering and death, brings us to ‘Life’. So today, let us renew our commitment to the Paschal experience of Jesus and immerse ourselves in His mission.  

Each one of us by our baptism, has accepted the invitation and indeed the challenge of living the message of Easter. Let the celebration of the Risen Lord be at the core of our daily lives as we endeavour to live the joy of the resurrection in our communities.


EASTER GRATITUDE

After the dark days of Lent, we have arrived into the springtime of Easter. It has been most encouraging to witness the number of people who attended daily Mass during the season of Lent. I thank those who have prepared and participated in our Easter Ceremonies. These are all signs of hope and light as we celebrate the presence and work of the Lord among us.

On behalf of the Parish Team, I wish all of you every blessing and peace this Easter.

Fr. Joe & Parish Team


MASSES FOR EASTER WEEK

Next week, Easter Monday to Friday 26th, there will be one Mass only at 10.00am.


THE DEEP END • FOR ALL ETERNITY

‘It was very early on the first day of the week and still dark…’ So begins today’s Gospel reading, the Gospel we listen to every Easter Sunday. This opening line sets the scene for the events of that first Easter, when first Mary of Magdala, and then Simon Peter and the other disciple, discover the empty tomb and come to the realisation that Jesus has risen fromthe dead. 

It is only at this moment that they understand what Jesus had been trying to teach them. Their eyes are opened. They see and they believe. And what about us, this Easter?What do we believe? Easter is about more than simply recalling or commemorating the resurrection of Jesus. By raising Jesus from the dead, God also opened up for us the way to eternal life. This feast is the reason for our faith and the reason for our hope. Our celebration today raises us up and renews us in faith, hope and love.

Let us love one another and pray,

Let us love one another and be faithful,

Let us love one another and be humble,

Let us love one another and be filled with the charity of God.

Let us love one another with God, in God, and for God,

And we shall thus be one with God for all eternity.

(Cornelia Connelly,foundress, Society of the Holy Child Jesus)

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

If Jesus had not been raised from the dead, his life and work would have been a glorious, but nonetheless tragic, failure. Without Jesus’ resurrection from the dead, what he began would have petered out. The resurrection was God’s resounding ‘yes’ to all that Jesus said and did, to all that he lived and died for.Fr Martin Hogan, ibid.
