this day of days we offer a joyful sacrifice
of praise to the Father who raised his Son
from the dead. Let us be intent upon the
life Christ offers us, Christ our Passover
who has been sacrificed.
HE IS RISEN… ALLELUIA! It seems that the cycle of popularity for things ancient
may be on the way back again and it made
me think of a few years ago when the Florida
International Museum had a “Splendors
of Egypt” exhibit. People go to such
events to get some insight into the ancient
Egyptian concept of life after death. The
Royalty of Egypt thought they could determine
their own immortality. Bodies were mummified,
and internal organs were kept in protected
containers. If the rich noble person did
not upset the gods, he would live forever.
The poor person, who could not afford such
things, had no hope for eternal life. . Read
Fr. John Gerth's message
in it's entirety in this week's bulletin.
