A single announcement was made at Mass today: "This morning, sometime before dawn, God raised Jesus of Nazareth from the dead." Though the tomb was found empty, He has never left us. At 3 celebrations of the Holy Mass this morning, the church was filled to overflowing, extra chairs in every aisle and filling all three vestibules. Long-time parishioners told me that they have never seen as many people at Mass. Despite the best claims of the pundits, faith is very strong in our midst. We know who is our Lord and Messiah! He is truly risen. Laudetur Iesus Christus; surrexit sicut dixit. Alleluia!
