[04/03/20]   Easter message 2020 from Father Elie

Beloved parishioners,

We might be wondering how we can celebrate Easter in this difficult and troubling time when dealing with feelings of anxiety and uncertainty. The coronavirus pandemic has affected all of us in unimaginable ways. We never imagined for example that churches will be closed, and faith communities would not be able to gather for worship, especially during Lent, Holy Week and Easter Sunday, which represent the core of Christian faith.

During the stay-at-home period, ordered by civil authorities, we discovered how much we love the Church, and how much we love and miss Holy Mass and how much we miss listening to the Word of God; we also discovered how much we love and we miss each other. This apprehensive time opened our eyes to God’s precious gifts for us, and made us appreciate even the smallest things that we used to take for granted.

Difficult times like these should make us realize how small and minute we humans are. Challenging situations make us realize our great need for God. They help us get closer to God and share in the passion of Our Lord. At the same time, Easter offers us the most comfortable message. Easter offers us a message of hope and encouragement in this world of pain, sorrows, and tears. Through His resurrection, Our Lord assured us that Life would prevail over death, good over evil, and grace over sin.

Certainly, the Resurrection of Christ is the greatest Christian feast, and the basis of our Christian Faith, as St. Paul wrote: “If Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is in vain; and your Faith is in vain” (I Cor 15:14).

In the words of the Catechism of the Catholic Church: "the Resurrection of Jesus is the crowning truth of our Faith in Christ, a Faith believed and lived as the central truth by the first Christian community, handed on as fundamental by Tradition, established by the documents of the New Testament, and preached as an essential part of the Paschal mystery along with the cross: Christ is risen from the dead! Dying, he conquered death; to the dead, he has given life.” (CCC # 638).

Easter reminds us that every Good Friday in our lives will have an Easter Sunday, and that Jesus will let us share in the power of his Resurrection. Each time we display our love for others, we share in the Resurrection. Each time we continue to hope, we share in the power of Jesus’ Resurrection.
Easter reminds us that life is worth living because of the Real Presence of the Risen Lord Jesus in our life. In short, the message of Easter is that nothing can destroy us – not pain, sin, rejection, betrayal or death – because Christ has conquered all these, and we, too, can conquer them if we put our Faith and trust in Him.

Easter gives us the joyful message that we are a “Resurrection people.” This means that we are not supposed to lie buried in the tomb of our sins, evil habits, dangerous addictions, despair, discouragement, or doubts. Instead, we are expected to live a joyful and peaceful life, constantly experiencing the living presence of the Risen Lord in all the events of our lives and amid the boredom, suffering, pain, and tensions of our day-to-day life.

We should be aware at all times of the presence of the Risen Lord with us. Our awareness of the all-pervading presence of the Risen Lord in and around us, and the strong conviction of our own coming resurrection, help us get rid of delusive worries and fears; it helps us control our thoughts and desires; it gives us serenity and true peace.

May we radiate the Risen Lord all around us. May we show others in words and deeds the love and mercy of the Risen Jesus living in our hearts.

Let us hope that, by the power and the grace of God, this difficult time ends soon, and we get back to our beautiful Liturgical celebrations and our cheerful gatherings with a lot of love and extraordinary enthusiasm.

May we share in the power of the Risen Lord, and may His peace be always with us.

Happy Easter

Father Elie
