As we prepare to celebrate the great events of our salvation, I want to implore you to approach this holy season with hearts and minds that are worthy of the love that Christ showed us, in his great sacrifice. Let us eschew all forms of hatred, gossips, rumours and ill feelings. Let us allow Christ to be rooted in all of our actions.

The Exsultet, the great Easter song which doubles also as the Easter Proclamation states clearly that the grace of this most wonderful event dispels all evil, washes guilt away, restores lost innocence, brings mourners joy; it casts out hatred, brings us peace, and humbles earthly pride...when heaven is wedded to earth and man is reconciled with God! You will agree with me that this is most gracious. PLEASE do not let us lose out in the grace that God is lavishing on us. Our act of appreciation to God for this greatest event in human history is to climb the mountain of the Lord with clean hands and pure hearts

Please let us approach the sacrament of reconciliacion prepared for the Parish, and let us remain the salt of the earth and light of the world. We are witnesses of Christ in the community of St Louis!
