Fr. Maro’s Weekly Message

Fr. MaroDear Parishioners,

The Lord is risen and Alleluia is our song!!!

I believe it is good to remember that professing the resurrection of our Lord is more than just words to us, it is the very foundation of our belief in Jesus Christ. Had Jesus not risen from the dead, there would have been no Christian faith. Our Lord has risen therefore we live – so let us live our lives as people of the resurrection. We are an Easter people – a people with the sure and certain hope that the promise of God for us to be with Him in heaven will be fulfilled as we continue to have faith in Him.

As we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord, let us be more vigilant in being good witnesses of the faith we have. Let us share this wonderful news of our Lord’s resurrection to the people around us and we do that not only through words but also and more importantly through the very lives we are living. The Good News has been revealed to us, let us make it known to all the world so that they too may become an Easter people.

Let us then live joyfully – as people who are saved! We do not deserve this wonderful gift of our salvation, all the more that we should be grateful. In the lives that we are living, let us show our gratefulness by being faithful to our God.

Brothers and sisters, HAPPY EASTER!!!

In Christ, Fr. Maro.
