FROM THE DESK OF FR. BONA: Alleluia! Christ is risen! The resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ is the greatest event the world will ever experience. It is the foundation of our Christian faith (see 1 Cor 15:17). More than 500 witnesses attest to the bodily resurrection of Jesus. It changed their lives. These witnesses had nothing to gain in this life from this belief, but everything to lose by their testimony. Their moral courage exhibited in their apostolic life can be explained only by their intimate conviction of the objective truth of their message. May the resurrection of our Lord change our lives as well. Blessed Easter to all of you. Fr. Bona

HEARTFELT THANKS to all the dedicated volunteers who helped in preparing for the Easter celebration— the liturgical music and singing, assisting in the liturgy, decorating the church, acquiring the flowers, mail and electronic publicity, cleaning, and inside and outside beautification of our church and the surrounding grounds. May God reward you abundantly!

The next Sunday is DIVINE MERCY Sunday: Our Lord’s promise to grant complete forgiveness of sins & punishment on the Feast of Mercy is recorded 3 times in St. Faustina’s DIARY, Divine Mercy in My Soul.  Jesus says: “I desire that the first Sunday after Easter be the Feast of Mercy. Ask of My faithful servant (Fr. Sopocko) that, on this day, he tell the whole world of My great mercy; that whoever approaches the Fount of Life on this day will be granted complete remission of sins and punishment.” (Paragraph 299-300) “I want to grant a complete pardon to the souls that will go to Confession and receive Holy Communion on the Feast of My Mercy.” (Paragraph 1109) “I desire that the Feast of Mercy be a refuge and shelter for all souls, and especially for poor sinners. On that day the very depth of My tender mercy are open. I pour out a whole ocean of graces upon those who approach the fount of My mercy. The soul that will go to Confession and receive Holy Communion shall obtain complete forgiveness of sins and punishment. On that day all the divine floodgates through which graces flow are opened. Let no soul fear to draw near to Me, even though its sins be as scarlet.” (Paragraph 699). For more information about DIVINE MERCY SUNDAY & a confession guide, go to: www.DivineMercySunday.com
