Liturgy Letter (Fourth Sunday of Easter 2016)

The Liturgy Letter – 4th Sunday of Eastertide 2016

Through Christ, we are able to do more than we could in our own strength, just as Peter worked a miracle in Joppa (Acts 9:36-43). The Lord is our shepherd (Revelation 7:9-17); he takes care of all our needs (Psalm 23) and offers us eternal life if we listen to his voice and follow him (John 10:22-30).

Liturgy Letter (Third Sunday of Easter 2016)

The Liturgy Letter – 3nd Sunday of Easter 2016

Just as Saul heard the voice of the Lord in the road to Damascus, was blinded and then regained his sight (Acts 9: 1-6), so we who turn from our sins and follow the Lord find joy and healing (Psalm 30). Because we love and trust God’s Son, who became man and dwelled among us (John 21:1-19), we offer him all praises and glory (Revelation 5:11-14).

Liturgy Letter (Second Sunday of Easter 2016)

The Liturgy Letter – 2nd Sunday of Easter 2016

We bear witness to Jesus’ death and resurrection and tell everyone the good news (Acts 5:27-32). Like Thomas, we lay aside our doubts (Jn 20:19-31) and now anticipate his second coming (Rev 1:4-8). We will not die, but live and proclaim what the Lord has done (Ps. 118).  Let everything that has breath praise the Lord!
