EASTER SUNDAY
Today is the Sunday of all Sundays, the great celebration of the resurrection of Jesus! On this day, we join with the disciples as they race to the tomb and discover it empty. We don’t have to linger on the outside with our doubts and fears. We can accompany the beloved disciple who went into the tomb and “saw and believed” (John 20:8). Then, with Mary Magdalene, we can embrace Jesus as our risen Lord. During Lent, we searched our hearts to find the stones that block us from the resurrection life. Now Jesus has rolled back these stones so that we can enter into a life of freedom and hope and joy. Let this be a day of celebration! Jesus has triumphed over every obstacle. He has obtained everything we need. We can rest in his arms, knowing that we are secure. Let’s stay close to Jesus in the joy of the resurrection. Though world events may be cause for serious concern, though the “unpredictables” of daily life may challenge our patience and trust, Jesus is with us. He wants the joy and stone-moving power of this day to be available to us always. In faith, we can pursue the lifetime goal of continual resurrections over everything that keeps us from recognizing our privileged position as a “beloved disciple.” Now is the time to raise your head and “set your minds on things that are above” (Colossians 3:2). Just as John looked inside the empty tomb and believed, we believe that the same Jesus who died and was thought to be gone forever is now alive. Our faith in his resurrection means we can put our trust in his entire life. All his words are true. All his promises, and all our hopes and dreams, will be fulfilled. As the light of the resurrection dawns with increasing brilliance, let your Easter alleluia burst forth!

"The stone which the builders have rejected

Has become the cornerstone, Alleluia!"



 

My Dear Parishioners!

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ!

 

Easter is the celebration of the greatest feast of Christianity.

He who on Good Friday was scourged as a criminal and crowned with thorns,

Nailed to the wood of the cross, now greets us with the words:

I am risen, Alleluia!

Christ has triumphed over Satan's pride and life has conquered death, Alleluia!

Jesus Christ, the stone rejected, has become our way, truth and life, Alleluia!

As we celebrate this joyful day,

may you know the peace and love of the risen Lord in your hearts and homes as you gather to share the blessed food in the Easter meal.

May the joy of risen Christ be yours this  Easter Season!

Have a wonderful Easter!!!

 

Your Pastor  -   Fr. Jacek
