On this most Holy of all weekends of the year we remember the supreme sacrifice our Havenly Father made when He allowed His Only Son to be crucified for our sins. Jesus willingly allowed Himself to be mocked, beaten, cursed and then nailed to a cross to suffer and die for us. He took our place. The wages of sin is death and only by His standing in for us and our punishment can we escape the death we so deserve.
He taught us to forgive as even He, in a time like this, looked down upon those who had nailed Him to that cross and said, “Father forgive them for they know not what they do.”
Jesus was the Son of God, He could have refused to die for us, but He didn’t, He did it to fulfill His duty to His Father and for all of us. This weekend spend time thinking about the great sacrifice that was made for you, don’t allow His death and Resurection to be in vane! Ask Him to forgive you and take you into His family. If you do, He will. Happy Easter.

Amen, my friend.
I am disappointed at not being able to attend Mass today. Or last night as well. But that doesn’t mean Easter, the celebration of the Resurrection, isn’t happening. And even though we may not be in the church building with our sisters and brothers we are still a church. And even though it’s won’t be on Easter Sunday let’s not forget that EVERY time the Mass is celebrated we commemorate Christ’s Resurrection. That hasn’t — and won’t — change. Amen!
Let’s make today a day of sacrifice and service. Check in on people living alone — a call will do. (That’s one of the other things you can do with a phone besides text.) Round up food for your food pantry. Drive through a restaurant. Sew a mask. Our fathers and grandfathers stormed hills when they were 18 and under enemy fire. We got this.
Yes we do!
