Dear Friends,

A joyful Easter to all!  

JOY is the common experience of the women and men who encountered the Risen Christ that first Easter morning, and it is JOY that enlivens those who encounter the Resurrected One today.  At Easter, we do more than just remember that the tomb was empty that Sunday morning and that many people encountered the risen Lord in various ways; we discover in our own lives that Christ indeed lives.  That renewed discovery does more than put a smile on our face; it draws us out of our own shell – all of the “I should haves” and the “I could nevers” – and lets us see life where it may have been hidden before.  May this Easter season be an encounter with the Risen Christ that draws us out of our shell and sends us forth rejoicing in Him and with God’s people.

With love,

Sr. Lyan Tri, acj and all of us at St. Raphaela Center.
