A Few Words from Father Steve
Our choir, our lectors, our Eucharistic ministers, our servers, our coordinators, our presiders, our staff and you did an amazing job sharing this story on Palm Sunday. Holy Week liturgies allow each of us to celebrate God’s wonderful power as evidenced in the death and Resurrection of Jesus. New life is possible as Jesus is present in our lives.
We all know the story – and on occasion, we are the characters in the story. We may cheer Jesus on, only to find moments later we are cowering in fear that someone might know we are a person of faith. We know Judas betrayed our Lord, Peter denied he knew Him and all the disciples cringed in fear in a room with locked doors after His death. Most of us can readily identify with each of these. The women were brave enough to go to the tomb to care for a dead body. Peter and John later ran to the empty tomb, looking inside to try and make sense of this amazing discovery.
The Resurrection can only be understood through eyes of faith. Linda Ward wrote in a Lenten reflection titled “The Challenge of Easter” these insightful words: “God did not raise Jesus from the grave so that His people could simply marvel at His power and celebrate His love for the world... Our calling is to follow Jesus and continue the ministry He began in this world. The following sums up well what I mean by our “Easter Challenge”: What is heard in the holy place must be lived in the market place or there is no point in hearing at all.”
You know the story – we tell it every year – through music, through readings, through hymns, through worship, through fire, through water, through example – we tell it every Sunday as we gather in worship on the first day of the week and bear witness to the Resurrection of Jesus. But we must also tell the story with our lives, with every word we speak and every action we take. Remember on this Easter Sunday morning; it not just what we believe but how we believe that reflects our understanding of the Resurrection. He is risen! He is risen, indeed! Alleluia!
Happy Easter ! Love to you, Father Steve
On behalf of
Father Steve, Father Brian, Father Jack, Father Tom
