A Message from Father Nathan

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

He is Risen!

Celebrate the Joy of Easter.

Lent is over and it is now time to celebrate the great joy of Easter!

At the Easter Vigil, the Exsultet is sung as Mass begins in darkness, illumined only by candles throughout the church. The Exsultet is a beautiful hymn of rejoicing in Christ’s triumph of sin and death.

O Truly necessary  sin of adam, destroyed completely by the Death of Christ! O happy fault that earned for us so great, so glorious a Redeemer!

God, in His perfect wisdom and love, took sin and the consequence of sin (death) and used them as the means of the salvation of the world.  That’s what Easter is all about!

Jesus destroyed sin

Jesus destroyed sin by destroying the consequences of sin which is death.  Death loses in the Resurrection!  Jesus’ Resurrection takes away the effects of all sin for those who cling to Him.

Cling to the Resurrected Lord

We must ‘cling” to our resurrected Lord!  We must cling to Jesus who is alive and well.   We must cling to His Resurrection and strive to share in it.  How we cling to our Resurrection Lord?  There are many ways. Here is one.

Easter means that nothing can keep us from the joy that God wants to give us.  Nothing can steal that joy away.  Know that God wants you to experience the joy of Easter in your life.  Let Him fill you with hope and with the joy that only the Resurrection can bring.  God wants Easter to begin now in our lives!

Prayers and blessings to you all.  Special appreciation to all those involved throughout this Lent in a particular manner, in this holy week, for the better and meaningful celebrations of the liturgy. 

God bless you all.  Happy Easter!

Ever wanting to be faithful to your service,

With love and blessings,

—Fr. Sahayanathan Nathan

Mass is God’s Food for Our Soul, come and partake. I am glad and delighted to witness many coming back to the church in person, which is great! I am looking forward to witnessing all our people back at the church. I thought maybe it would be good to do a little catechism as my thankfulness.
