The very liturgy of the Easter Vigil ushered us into the mystery of the new creation. A new fire was kindled, and a new Paschal candle was lit.
We, the Church, moved from darkness to light as we lit our individual candles from the one flame.
We listened to our story of salvation and faith proclaimed.
New holy water was blessed and, with it, new members were brought into the Church. Yes, Jesus is making all things new! Rosemarie, one of our young adults, was receive into the Catholic Church.
This newness extends to our lives. Jesus has re-created and He restored a world that was disordered by sin. And he re-creates each one of us. He who spoke the universe into existence now speaks healing and wholeness into our lives.
Let us sing the alleluias for Christ is Risen, He is truly Risen!
