Fr. Maro’s Weekly Message

Fr. MaroDear Parishioners,

He is risen, Alleluia!

With Jesus Christ, let us rise up to new life responding to the Easter call of proclaiming the Good News to the ends of the earth.

Jesus Christ showed us His great love for us when He died on the cross for us and when He resurrected to new life. Now it is our turn to show our love for Him by our renewed commitment to love and serve through our love and service for one another.

On this greatest of all feasts, let us remember that love must have first place in our lives: love of God and love of neighbor – love that will make us serve God through one another. Our lives must show that indeed we have been raised up in company with Jesus Christ.

Let us continue to live less for ourselves and live more for others. I believe this is the best way to happiness in this life and the best preparation for eternal happiness in Heaven. By loving others, we will come ever closer to God and someday be saints with Him in heaven.

Happy Easter! Let us not let this day pass without saying “I love you” to God and to one another.

In the Risen Christ,
Fr. Maro
