"They have taken the Lord from the tomb and we don't know where they put him"

Where will the Risen Christ appear in your life this Easter Season? Will we call to mind all that transpired this Lent from the ashes of Wednesday through all the Sundays? Through all the snow days in between?

Will we remember the Litany of Scriptures that spoke about "how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power"? And will we be like the Apostles who believed the word of some women, the first witnesses of Christ's Resurrection? Will we run ahead to an empty tomb, see and believe?

As we enter this Easter Season, this time of mystagogy, we give thanks to the newest members who have entered the faith community of the Christ the Redeemer Parish. They have come through the waters of Baptism to new life, have been sealed with the Gifts of the Holy Spirit in Confirmation, and been nourished at his table with his Body and Blood.
