From The Pastor’s Garden
A few weeks back, prophet Zephaniah (Zep 3, 14-18) Encouraged us to feel the sweet taste of victory over sin and darkness, he said: Shout for joy… May your heart be filled with the divine music from heaven because He is back again, as He promised before. Be glad and exult with all your heart…, Today, we are sure that dead has been defeated. It has no more power over humankind, the source of life has given us back true life and happiness. It is the best time of the year for all of us.
The Lord, is in your midst, you have no further misfortune to fear. For many of us, Lent has been a difficult time for the things that we had to suffer ourselves or our loved ones. It could have been a time of confusion, doubt and discouragement. But now, we are sure that He, the Risen one, is in our midst to lift us up, to encourage us, to heal us and to help us.
The Lord, your God, is in your midst, a mighty savior; Today has started “the third day” of our lives, His Spirit is acting and moving in our community in the bodies, minds and hearts of all who believe in Him and wait for his coming, He will rejoice over you with gladness, and renew you in his love, he will sing joyfully because of you, as one sings at festivals. In Jesus, our sins have been erased, our faults forgiven, our sins absolved. He has restored our hearts with the infinite love of the Father. He rejoices with us, He makes a feast in heaven for each of us, and encourages us with His Spirit to continue doing good without being discouraged, to get up from every fall and to improve our own lives and that of our parish groups. Jesus calls and challenges us to build His community, founded on love, respect, tolerance and mutual support.
HAPPY EASTER OF RESSURECTION, dear brothers and sisters.
