“Christ, my hope, is risen!”

(Easter Sequence)

Gutzler, AntoinetteThese words of Mary of Magdala, on meeting the Risen Christ, echo our joy at this Easter season.  There’s something very “right” about Easter coming in spring, just when the earth is awakening from a long, cold, bleak winter.  When new life comes out of the frozen ground, we, too, feel something new budding within us.  As faith-filled people we become deeply aware that, because Jesus has been raised, we live in the light of resurrection hope.

It is this hope that we Maryknoll Sisters share with all of you.  We hold you very specially in our prayers at this Easter season.  As we celebrate the new life we find in Christ this Easter, may each one of us be a bearer of hope.
