Alleluia!

Alleluia! Christ is Risen! He is Truly Risen!

Risen ChristOur faith in the resurrection of Jesus must impel us to live lives of holiness and to be examples of Christian living in society today. As the world hangs its head in a dismal culture of death, a world where life has no value and sin seems to have full control, we have the responsibility, as followers of Jesus, to give a lifelong witness of morality, innocence, modesty, holiness, and humility. In doing so, we follow Our Lord to His Cross, and rise with Him to a new life – a life of virtue, a life of Christian goodness.

pope francis vigil“Let the risen Jesus enter your life, welcome him as a friend,  he is life! If up till now you have kept him at a distance, step forward. He will receive you with open arms. If you have been indifferent, take a risk: you won’t be disappointed. If following him seems difficult, don’t be afraid, trust him, be confident that he is close to you, he is with you and he will give you the peace you are looking for and the strength to live as he would have you do.”  ~Pope Francis’ sermon for the Easter Vigil 2013
