Paschal Message 2022

At the epicenter of Christ’s resurrection, this explosion of love, is the person of Mary of Magdala, a small fishing town on the shore of the sea of Galilee; today we pause to reflect on Mary’s importance to the Christian faith. Mary has unfairly been the object of confusion, and at times, derision; certainly she has been mischaracterized.

When reading the lives of the saints, it is easy to discern their love for Christ. This passion for the risen Lord led them to participate in his ministry, through acts of service, rooted in kindness. Any service to the church, no matter how small or seemingly insignificant, from reading the epistle, to singing, to serving, to even vacuuming the church or lighting candles, is a active ministry, full of grace, only if it is carried out in love, sacrifice, devotion, and steadfastness.

This is the life of the saint; this is a life which is well pleasing to God. Let each one of us emulate this life.

Fr Marc Vranes
