He is not here, he has Risen, Mk 16:6
My dear Friends,
With great joy in our hearts, we the Rosarians announce to you: “Christ is risen! He is risen indeed! ”This ancient greeting sums up what we celebrate this Easter Sunday, the joy of Christ risen and alive in our midst. ”This is the day the Lord has made: let us rejoice and be glad” (Psalm 118). This is the Joyful Good News: Christ by his death and resurrection has conquered sin so we may live. The Resurrection is the foundation and cornerstone of our faith. As St. Paul says, ”if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is useless and our faith too is in vain” (Cf. 1 Cor 15:14). On Easter Vigil we recall God’s
story – in our story of salvation. The liturgy of the Word re-enacts that story and we joyfully celebrate the risen Lord in our midst as He offers Himself anew in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. We do this in a spirit of thanksgiving to God who gives His own Son to die in order to rescue us from the slavery of sin.
May we live as people deeply touched by the resurrection and proclaim: ”Christ is risen, Alleluia!” May our encounter with the risen Lord on our journey of faith touch us deeply and transform us as He did for His Disciples. May the resurrection lead us to be the best version of ourselves; committed to live out our Baptismal covenant. When we live the new life of the resurrection, we become the best version of ourselves. We become what St. Augustine referred to as an “Easter People”, a people transformed into disciples and stewards who commit to give their time, talent and treasure in witness. My prayer for you this Easter is that you live as people deeply touched by the resurrection and proclaim: ”Christ is risen, Alleluia, Alleluia!”
We the Rosarians continue to offer the daily masses and our prayers for your families, children and grandchildren. We miss you. Be safe. Thanks a lot for your constant support for the growth of the church and your special concern towards the Rosarians.
Wish you all a blessed Easter and God bless,
Fr. Antony CR and Fr. Sebastin CR.
