A Message from Father Nathan

My dearest people who are all close to my heart!
Lots of love, blessings, and prayers to you all.

Easter Sunday. He is Risen!

Christ is Risen! He is Risen Indeed!

Wishing you a delightful Easter filled with hope, joy, and the wonder of God’s blessing.

The true meaning of Easter has deep significance in our lives for us as Catholics. Easter celebrates Christ’s resurrection from the dead. Christ is Risen!

One practice of commemorating Easter is the joyous greeting of “Christ is Risen! And a response of “He is risen indeed!” Easter is a celebration of the resurrection of Jesus from the tomb on the third day after His crucifixion.

Prophecy Fulfilled

Easter is the fulfilled prophecy of the Messiah who would be persecuted, die for our sins, and rise on the third day. (Isaiah 53). Remembering the resurrection of Jesus is a way to renew daily hope that we have victory over sin.

Easter means that our greatest enemy, death, has been conquered.

Easter means that our sins are forgiven, and are made right with God.

Easter means that Christ is truly the King and Victor, seated far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked (Ephesians 1:21)

The meaning of Easter is that Jesus is Lord of new beginnings, new days, and new lives.

We had a wonderful and meaningful celebration of the Easter Season. I would like to thank all those people who have sacrificed their time and talents for the meaningful celebration. I would like to thank Deacon Bill and his wife Ms. Karen for coming back here to be part of our celebration.

May God bless you all. “Happy Easter! May the miracle of this beautiful and sacred day stay with you all year. Let me quote and finish with the wisdom of Pope John Paul ll—

“Yes, Christ is truly risen, we are witnesses of this. We proclaim this witness to the world, so that the joy, which is ours will reach countless other’s hearts, kindling in them the light of the hope which does not disappoint.” –Pope John Paul II

God bless you all.

With lots of love and blessing.

Ever at your service.

—Fr. Sahayanathan Nathan
