Do Not Be Afraid!

“Do not be afraid!  I know that you are looking for Jesus who was crucified.  He is not here; for he has been raised… Come, see the place where he lay.” (Matthew 28:5-6)  With these words of the angel to the women at the tomb, I offer you this joyful Easter message.

On Easter Sunday, we celebrate the most unique victory which no human being has ever achieved – victory over the power of death.  We celebrate that victory every Easter and every Sunday.  Christ’s victory over death is good news reminding us that we must not be afraid because Christ lives to give us hope in this life and eternal life in the world to come.

Because of the resurrection, there is nothing we need to be afraid of.  We know that Christ’s power of the resurrection will indeed lead us to victory. That is the good news Easter brings to all of us. If you are facing health issues, marital crisis, economic crisis, personal crisis, this message is for you. God, is the out to transform all that and lead you out of the crisis, whatever it may be. God intends you to have life in abundance. God gives you abundant life through the Sacrament of Reconciliation or Confession. Let Christ take over your life. “Do not be afraid!”

I wish you all a blessed and fruitful Easter season. “Christ is risen, alleluia, alleluia!”
