April

The month of April is dedicated to The Holy Spirit. The entire month falls during the Easter season. The liturgical color is white - the color of light, a symbol of joy, purity and innocence.

After our solemn commemoration of the last days and death of Our Lord, we will spend the month of April celebrating. As Spring breaks forth, even nature will join us as buds and blooms begin to surface and we spend this month basking in the joy of the Resurrection. We continue throughout the entire month our cry, "Christ is risen, Christ is truly risen." The Feast of Divine Mercy offers us the opportunity to begin again as though we were newly baptized. The unfathomable mercy of God is made manifest today if we accept His most gracious offer. Easter is the feast of feasts, the unalloyed joy and gladness of all Christians. This truly is "the day that the Lord has made." 

Second Sunday of Easter

Bring your hand and feel the place
 of the nails, and do not
be unbelieving but believing, alleluia.

Our family life would no doubt be enhanced if we were able to transform Jesus' greeting into a central feature in our family's interactions. After his Resurrection, “Peace be with you” is the first thing that Jesus says to his disciples. This could be our daily family prayer for one another. In today's Gospel, we also hear that Jesus  breathed on his disciples and gave them the gift of the Holy Spirit. In Baptism, each of us has received the gift of the Holy Spirit as well as the forgiveness of sins. Peace is a fruit of the Holy Spirit. Our Baptism, then, invites us to share in the peace that Christ gave to his disciples and commissions us to share that peace of Christ by generously forgiving others as Jesus taught.

SOLEMNITY OF THE ANNUNCIATION OF THE LORD
On Monday, April 4th, Evening Prayer will be held at 6:00 PM followed by the Rosary at 6:30 PM then Mass at 7:00 PM at Christ, Prince of Peace Church.  This most holy feast day is when the Son of God became incarnate of the Virgin Mary.
