Dear Parishioners of St. James:
Praised be Jesus Christ!
The Lord is risen, alleluia!
Jesus conquered death by rising from the dead so that you could
live your new life. We are now equipped to live a life on high in
Christ Jesus: a life freed from guilt through Confession; a life as
a son and daughter instead of a slave to earthly expectations; a
life of fertile love always reaching out to more life; a life of
unity and purpose as one destined for heaven; a life of freedom,
love and peace.
Start living your new life! Look forward to where Our Risen
Lord awaits you. Pay no attention to things gone by. You have
died and you have been raised in Christ Jesus.
Happy Easter! Alleluia!
God Bless You,
HIS HOLINESS, POPE FRANCIS
