Spring has sprung -- and Easter continues!
The bloom of Spring in is the air as Winter's sleeping trees and plants come back to life. I hope you are filled with new life as well. It was a beautiful Easter celebration in our churches. Now it is time to see the Resurrected Christ in the fields, forests and marketplaces. May we keep our eyes and hearts open to see Him there, calling us to new life!
Take time to view the video at the bottom of this page. It's worth your attention and will make you proud to be Catholic!

A Prayer for the Easter Season
Lord of Easter's Promise,
I live in faith of the Resurrection,
But such is the nature of my faith
That so much of me remains entombed. break open the tomb.
Where I've buried my compassion, break open the tomb.
Where I've buried my sense of mercy, break open the tomb.
Where I've buried my humility, break open the tomb.
Where I've buried my humanity, break open the tomb.
Where I've buried my love for my Heavenly Father, break open the tomb.
Where I've buried my sense of joy, break open the tomb.
Where I've buried my willingness to forgive, break open the tomb.
Lord, in you I've found a Savior no grave can withstand.
Help me to roll away this stone and find the miracle of new life
That I may live more fully in your saving grace.
