WISHING YOU A BLESSED HOLY WEEK, AND ALL THE JOY OF THE RISEN CHRIST!
May you continually enter into the joy and the consoling mission of Jesus in His risen life.

'On entering the tomb they saw a young man in a white robe seated on the right-hand side, and they were struck with amazement.
But he said to them, 'There is no need to be so amazed. You are looking for Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified: He has risen, He is not here. See, here is the place where they laid Him.'
