We have now completed two of the eight weeks of our Easter Season. It is a wonderful Season because it is in this Easter Season that we get to walk with the Disciples and with Jesus as He gives them the final review of what their and our role will be after He has returned to the Father on Ascension Thursday. During these eight weeks Jesus is helping the Disciples, and again us, understand what it means to be bearers of the Good News in our world because what had been the Mission of Jesus has now become the Mission of all who have said “Yes” to being a Follower of Christ. It is now our responsibility to share with all who cross our path the truth of Jesus’ message. Jesus’ message was a message of caring for one another as brothers and sisters and these eight weeks of the Easter Season are lessons on how we are called to do this. May we pay attention to these important lessons and thus love one another as Jesus has shown us.
God’s continued peace,
Fr. Yvon J. Royer
