We are the Easter people and Hallelujah is our song!
-Pope John Paul II
We celebrated the resurrection of Jesus today with a beautiful mass at the Basilica followed by a sumptuous meal prepared by a joint effort. We dined on ham, an Italian meat dish, the name of which I have already forgotten, (prepared of course by Sr. Mary Joan), green bean casserole, potatoes, rolls and salad. Yum! And Sr. Noel prepared a delicious punch as well as three desserts! One dessert was made of rhubarb, my absolute favorite, and it was scrumptious.
And now we are all joyfully playing bowling on Laura's Wii. Or everyone else is while I type away on my computer....
Jesus has risen and the darkness of the Lenten season gives way to joy, a joy that is only a taste of what awaits us in heaven.
May our risen Lord fill you with His light on this blessed day.
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
