Reflection

EASTER SUNDAY

A quiet joy and peace

 

On Easter Day we still feel pain, our own pain and the pain of others.

But a new element has been introduced.

It doesn’t remove the pain,

But gives it a meaning, and lights it up with hope.

All is different because Jesus is alive and speaks his words of peace to us.

Therefore, there is a quiet joy among us, and a deep sense of peace.

Jesus has broken the power of death, and give us the hope of eternal life.

Lord, guard this hope with your grace, and bring it to fulfillment in the kingdom of heaven.

 

HAPPY EASTER EVERYONE!

Working wonders in our livelihoods

"The services provided by ShareLife agencies are lifesaving and life-restoring to those who who regularly rely on them.  Families are working through crises and are healing.  People with developmental challenges are supported as they experience a sense of self-worth and fulfillment in their daily activities.  Seniors are living independently, with access to the care and services they need.  Refugees and new Canadians are guided toward a stable, productive livelihood in their newfound home.  Sometimes the results are obvious and sometimes they're invisible but, always, they make a tangible difference."

- Thomas Cardinal Collins, Archbishop of Toronto

Next ShareLife Sunday - May 4th, 2014

Please give generously.  You can work wonders!
