Christus Surrexit!

We are blessed to have had a deeply prayerful Triduum, concluding with our Vigil Mass last evening. Below is a two-minute window into the Easter Vigil, featuring mostly the Service of Light, the procession into the Chapel, and the lighting of the Sanctuary lamp. At our reception in the parlor, following Mass, we could not help but to recognize one of our faithful (and faith-filled) Sunday patrons as the "best dressed" for the occasion. (And the pink cup of monastery-punch just about made the picture!) We wish our readers a Happy and Holy Easter!

"Let us be consumed on the cross that the Lord has given us and accomplish all he wills, so that at the end will will receive the grace to entrust our spirit into His hands. He will receive it as He did that of His dear and only Son, to make it rejoice in Heaven, where we will bless Him eternally for the glory that He won for us by His Death and Passion."

St. Francis de Sales
