Amid the calls for sacrifice and self-denial that are traditional during the Lenten season, the Sisters of St. Francis of the Neumann Communities chose to send you messages of hope, reminders that the difficult times we face during our lives are temporary and that we do not face them alone.
On this Easter Sunday, God sends us a message of hope more powerful than any earthly email, tweet or text that we can receive. The risen Christ tells us that death, like all other difficulties, also is temporary and that a much better life awaits us in heaven.
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope. (Romans 15:13)
May your Easter blessings abound!
