Easter greetings2022

"Peace be with you!"  The risen Lord greeted the disciples who gathered in fear behind the locked door, devastated by his cruel death on the cross.  Christ came among them, showed them his hands and side to scatter their fear, and fill them with His peace. 

As we unite to celebrate the glorious resurrection of Our Lord Jesus Christ, we are reminded of Jesus' gift of peace, which the world cannot give.

In his Easter homily, Pope Francis preached, “Easter is the feast of tombstones taken away, rocks rolled aside. God takes away even the hardest stones against which our hopes and expectations crash: death, sin, fear, worldliness. Human history does not end before a tombstone, because today it encounters the “living stone,” the risen Jesus. We, as Church, are built on him, and, even when we grow disheartened and tempted to judge everything in the light of our failures, he comes to make all things new, to overturn our every disappointment." 

May the joy and peace of the risen Lord Jesus be with you this Easter season and always.  

Happy Easter!

Mother Mary Joseph and all the Sisters of Terre Haute Carmel.
