We celebrate the Risen Lord with Easter Joy. We walked with Jesus during the forty days of Lent. We entered the Gates of Jerusalem with Jesus on Palm Sunday with cries of "Hosanna" and cries of "Crucify Him"! And as we turned to the Cross as it was placed on his shoulder, now we experience the release of all the "heavy wood" that we have been carrying. For with the Resurrection of the Lord, we are saved from our sins which have burdened us. Our own burdens have been lifted from us by the Wood of the Cross carried for us. And now, Jesus has been raised from the dead, and in His Resurrection, we rise to new life! Our sins, forgiven! Our soul. free! Join me in welcoming into the Church those who were baptized, confirmed, and received their First Communion on Easter Vigil Night. It is in their faces that we experience the joy of Easter! They have accepted Jesus, taking as their heart, the heart of Jesus just as we have! Our joy and their joy is the Joy of the Lord! Happy Easter!
