The post Easter Gospels are full of emotions from the people who witnessed the Risen Lord. Mostly everyone can relate to the shock, fear and disbelief of those who knew Jesus was dead and buried...and now He is in their midst. The impact of what they experienced was so real for them that they professed Jesus as "My Lord and My God" (John 20). Many of them were martyred proclaiming Him the Messiah.
We are at a two-thousand year distance from the event and perhaps counted among those in the same Gospel where Jesus said to Thomas: "Have you come to believe because you have seen me? Blessed are those who have not seen and have believed."
To keep in close contact with the Resurrected Lord allows time and space to disappear and the awareness of Christ's eternal presence becomes more and more evident in our everyday lives. Keep close to Christ and His Church and the Easter mystery will continue to unfold.
In the Risen Lord,
Father Joe Piekarski (Pastor)
Our deepest sympathy to Ann Smith and her family upon the death of her husband, Deacon John Smith. Deacon John died on Divine Mercy Sunday, April 12, 2015. He was a Permanent Deacon for the Diocese of Wilmington. A native of New York and former police and marine, John's presence was evident with thoughtfulness and charity. May he rest in peace.
