PASTOR’S EASTER GREETING

 Happy Easter to our Parishioners, Friends and Neighbors of St. Mary’s Church

As we gather to celebrate the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ we are so glad to have you here with us. Together we make present the reality of that holy mystery, Jesus breaking forth from the tomb, on that Easter morning so many years ago.

As winter comes to an end our hearts turn toward the promise of spring.  Like flowers that have long been hidden under snow which will soon be in bloom, the Easter mysteries afford an opportunity to reflect on the difficulties of life and to see that even in darkness hope abounds.

The glory of Easter morning is not a distant experience, it is a present one. It is one in which we are called to take part. Like Mary Magdalene encountering Jesus in the garden, we are called to be aware of the one in whose presence we stand and we are invited help others to do the same.

We do this by being a people of hope, by wearing a smile on our face and letting go of our fear and doubt about the future. We do this by offering a, “Hello” to the people we meet on the street whether we know them or not. We do this by offering some of our treasure to help good projects get off the ground. We do this by pausing on our walk to pick up a piece of garbage. We do this by looking at the person sitting in the pew next to us and taking the chance to reach out a hand and introduce ourselves. There are so many ways that we can help others, and help ourselves, to be aware of the risen Christ in our midst.

As you go forward from this Church today, do so knowing that you are an ambassador for the risen Christ; like the woman returning from the tomb, like the disciples rushing home from their walk to Emmaus, we too are called to proclaim that Christ is alive. We know this because we have seen him with our own eyes.

May God bless you and all those you love.
