Easter 2020. It will be one that none of us ever forget. As we peer into the empty tomb of our current crisis situation, we are challenged to see and believe. But we are the disciples whom Jesus loves; and we surrender ourselves to the Easter mystery when we return love. All we need to do is hand ourselves over into God’s hands. Filled with God’s love, we are then able to love in return. Alleluia! The tomb is empty. By our love, we see and believe, and we are filled with new life. Today as we celebrate the feast of Easter, we find the challenge of seeing and believing the resurrection that comes through our own lives of self-sacrifice. Let us pray for the grace to take up our own cross and to follow Jesus through death to new life. By supporting the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, we can also help the poor as they carry their crosses of suffering and pain that have only grown harder with the current health and economic scares. As you send in your gift to the Society of St. Vincent de Paul – either electronically or to the Parish Office – know that you are a sign of God’s love to those who are suffering and you give them Easter hope and joy. It is then that we are truly Easter people!
