Happy Easter!

_______________________________________________________________________

BLESSED EASTER to all.

Share the good news with everybody. The Lord’s Resurrection is assurance to everyone that the kingdom of heaven awaits us. Aside from any other good news we could anticipate, this confirmation of everlasting life surpasses all. How much God loves us!

Since our baptism when the Lord initiated our intimate relationship with Him, our aspiration continues to be to live with Him forever. Saint Paul tells us that we cannot even begin to imagine what God has waiting for us, so we have much to which to look forward. Thanks to his sacramental and sanctifying graces, we too will share in his glory. Even now we can begin to enjoy just a little experience of heaven just by loving one another. Together with the awareness that we are loved by God and by others, we can already share a joy that cannot be equaled. This alone and exclusively is our reason to REJOICE.

We here at our spiritual home - Saint Francis of Assisi Cathedral Parish – have so much for which to be thankful, not the least of which is one another. We are most grateful to our loving God for all the good He has wrought in us. It allows us to REJOICE that we have one another in our family that is the Church.

Let’s extend that environment of holiness to all we encounter.  As the cathedral parish of the Diocese of Metuchen we are gifted with exposure to many people from throughout our diocese and beyond not afforded to other parishes. Many people visit out parish – our cathedral, our school, our ministries – and through us experience the larger Church. It is our special ministry designated by His Holiness Pope John Paul II in 1981 when he established Saint Francis Parish the Seat of Peter in central New Jersey. Presently, we are blessed by Pope Francis to have Bishop Checchio leading us from the cathedral.

We welcome all who come to Saint Francis, and we pray that they will experience the warm grace of our Lord present among us. REJOICE!

In Christ’s service,
