An Easter Message from Fr. Audrius Sarka
He is Risen!
Death could not hold him. Rejoice in the resurrection of Jesus Christ!
Near my residence there is the most magnificent Magnolia tree. Around this time of year, it is particularly exciting as the green buds begin to blossom and the white flowers begin to peep through. In a few weeks’ time the whole tree will be covered in white blossoms. Then the flowers will drop away and we’ll be waiting until next year to see them again.
Every spring we remember the resurrection of Jesus Christ: he who was crucified yet who, in Christian faith, rose again, conquering the powers of sadness and of death.
That theme of new life is particularly important for us this year. This time last year we were just entering into lockdown. We had no idea that a year later we would still be faced with the challenges of the Coronavirus.
In this last year a lot will have changed. People have died. People have struggled. The whole of society has had to work very hard, cooperating in order to bring us through the crisis.
But the promise of God at Easter is: there will be new life. There will be new beginnings, and with the help of God, we can build into a fullness of new life, finding new ways to serve our communities, new ways to enter into the joys of life, new ways to celebrate the new life into which God invites us.
Alleluia! Christ is Risen!
He is Risen Indeed! Alleluia!
Have a blessed and Happy Easter!
Fr. Audrius Sarka
