The Lord is risen. Alleluia!

Dear Friends, we have journeyed together through the season of Lent and have shared in commemoration of the sorrowful Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ. Today, with the Church and the whole universe, we sing aloud joyfully with exultation as we share in Christ’s Victory: "He has risen! He has truly risen! Alleluia!"
Christ is raised from the dead. He has passed through the limit of this mortal life to set us free and open for us the way to  His kingdom. As Saint Paul said, "If we have died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him. For we know that Christ being raised from the dead will never die again; death no longer has dominion over him." (Rom 6:8-9)
We pray to our Risen Christ to give hope and comfort to those who are still walking the valley of tears and suffering.  May the risen Lord grant peace and reconciliation to nations so that all people may live in the unity of peace, justice and freedom.  
May the grace, joy and peace of the Risen Christ be with you.
From Mother Anne and your Carmelite Sisters of Terre Haute.
