THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
The stone that crushed their hearts
was rolled away from the entrance to his tomb.
The silence that deafened their ears
was broken when a voice cried “He is alive.”
The darkness that blinded their eyes
was shattered by the brilliance of his appearance.
Ever since from age to age, we are able to go forth
with the hope of resurrection in our hearts.
Alleluia! Amen. Jesus Christ is risen today, Alleluia!
Wishing each and everyone a very happy, joy-filled and hope-filled Easter. As you joyfully celebrate this Easter Day, I ask the risen Lord to sustain you and give you great joy and serenity in all that you do. Easter Mass offered for your intentions. Thanks for all your kindness and support. Let our Easter song be – Jesus is risen, Alleluia! Fr Peter.
