Easter 2017 Message from Father Gregory
CHRIST IS RISEN!
CHRIST IS RISEN, INDEED!
With these words, the Church throughout the world and for all time acclaims the central tenet of our faith: God raised Jesus from the dead to show us that all Jesus said and did was from the Father, and that through his death and resurrection, we are saved from sin and death, and united for all eternity to God and all those persons (both human and angelic) who share in the Communion of Saints.
These precious and holy days that we experience in the Sacred Triduum are our annual opportunity to enter deeply into the Paschal Mystery, and so renew our own individual connection to Christ and his saving death.
Be assured of my prayers, and the prayers of all the monks, for all of you, that this Easter may be a source of great blessing and joy.
As ever in the Lord,
Father Gregory Mohrman, O.S.B., '76
