Father Pete’s Easter Message

“Although you have not seen him; even though you do not see him now, yet believe in him, you rejoice with an inexpressible joy…”     1 Peter 1:8-9

   I have often tasted this joy described by Saint Peter. I have read how great mystics like Saint Francis, Saint Catherine of Sienna, and Saint Ignatius have felt this joy! Could this joy be a share in God’s Kingdom already here on earth, a taste of the wedding banquet which awaits us?

   I believe that even in scary times, we can have a taste of this joy, if we trust God fully. I believe that we can experience this joy even in the midst of great trials. I know people who have. I have tasted this joy.

   Yes, our faith might be tested. But, our faith is not just positive thinking. It is rather, entrusting ourselves to God’s infinite healing love!

                                                      Love,

                                                             Fr. Pete
