May Joy and Hope Be Yours this Easter
My brothers and sisters, may the peace of the Lord be with you this holy season!
Throughout the Lenten season, Pope Francis has invited us to become “islands of mercy in a sea of indifference,” and to acknowledge and care for the weakest, poorest and most neglected of our sisters and brothers.
This Easter, as we celebrate the Risen Jesus and his victory of love over hatred and life over death, we thank you.
Thank you for all the ways you enable our Church to become a sign of Christ’s victory over indifference.
Thank you for creating “islands of mercy” in which men, women and children who are hungry, homeless and without hope might experience God’s tender compassion and presence.
May the Spirit of the Risen Jesus fill your hearts with new joy and hope!
Most Rev. J. Peter Sartain
Archbishop of Seattle
