Paschal Message 2015

Dear faithful: let us rejoice in this feast. We come, not because we have righteousness, pure prayer, surpassing wisdom and complete piety. We come because we wish for Christ to give us Himself, the perfection of faith, the True Life, the Word that raises the dead. Christ is the Victor over Death, the vanquisher of all other victors. In our weakness we see death and a tomb; in the gift of faith and truth, we see glory and life eternal, not just as empty words, but the Word, Reason for all things, who greets us in the flesh: I have arisen.
Christ is Risen!
Fr. Elijah Mueller, 2015
