This is a day for celebration. This is the day Christ our Brother broke the chains of death and rose in triumph from the grave. He did this, not just for himself, but for all of us. He wants us to share in his great victory over sin and death.
“The Lord is risen. Alleluia! Christ has Risen, Truly He is Risen, and He arose and gave us life everlasting!”
With these joyful words we greet and rejoice with all of you as we celebrate the feast of our Savior’s resurrection. Today we celebrate the renewal of our humanity and all of God’s creation. Today dawns the eternal spring of the Church from which blossoms the fruit of new and unending life. May the blessings of Easter, its joy and peace remain in your hearts now and always. Have a blessed, holy, and joyous Easter.
Radosnych świąt Zmartwychwstania Pańskiego oraz Błogosławieństwa Bożego życzy!
Fr. Gregory and Tatiana
Do not be afraid! Jesus is alive, and we will live too! Resurrection! It happened in the dark with no witnesses. When it began dawning, everything shattered. Christ rose from the dead.
Two women came to inspect the tomb. They found the stone rolled back, the guards paralyzed with fear and fallen down like dead men. They saw the angel of the Lord sitting there, his garments dazzling as snow. The women were able to hear his voice saying: “Do not be afraid! I know you are looking for Jesus crucified, but He is not here. Come and see the spot where He lay. Then go quickly and tell His disciples: ‘He has been raised from the dead and now goes ahead of you to Galilee, where you will see Him.’”
This is the Easter message I have for you, the message of the living God. Do not be afraid! We believe in Jesus who is alive and gives the promise of live eternal to His faithful followers.
On the occasion of Easter, I wish you stronger faith, peace of mind, joy and happiness, which results from the fact that Jesus is alive. Together with those who witnessed the resurrected Jesus go and tell the story to others that they may also believe.
Have a Happy Easter! Radosnego Święta Zmartwychwstania!
