Parish Priest’s Message

Dear Friends!
“For since death came through a man, The resurrection of the dead comes also through a man" 1 Corinthians 15:21
Easter is meant to symbolize hope, bringing back to life and a complete new life thereafter. Easter tells us that you may be able to put truth in a, but not forever. This is the time when God transformed the inevitability of death into the invincibility of life. The Resurrection represents the victory of Christ over death and a life after death. That is, 'Eternal Life '. The resurrection of Jesus Christ happened at a time of complete disorder in the Roman Empire. The preceding week of crucifixion was indeed one of complete darkness and utter confusion. Fear and worry prevailed over the disciples and other followers of Christ, on account of the viciousness of Roman power, hostility of Jewish religious authorities and more importantly, the feebleness of their own faith. A star of hope had risen when Mary Magdalene and other women came to visit Jesus' tomb on Sunday morning. They were received by an angel who in turn comforted them and guided them inside to confirm the Resurrection. Jesus' prophecies about himself were validated and fulfilled through his resurrection. He provided us with a credible proof to believe that faith in God is unassailable. He reversed the impact of evil on His creation. Evil and suffering may still be identified in this world but they have ceased to be the identification of those who believe in Him. As we emerge from the doom and despair caused by the Covid -19,the message of a new life that Easter gives us has the utmost importance in our lives. The dislocation in economic and social life has been devastating in some areas. Yet the message of Resurrection presents us with an indisputable assurance that Christ is still with us today and a peaceful and fruitful future life awaits us with all its splendor and beauty. A hope that goes beyond the grave.......
May we be able to live as people who have experienced the Resurrection in our life that we may always be guided by Hope to conquer the difficulties in our life.
God Bless!!!!
