Sisters of St. Francis of the Holy Cross in Green Bay, WI

Reflection for April 16, 2017

by Sister Paulette Hupfauf

The journey from Ash Wednesday to Easter Sunday can seem long.  But life always wins the day as the Easter Mystery transforms our lives.  It shows us a compassionate God whose love and mercy triumph over evil.

The Easter celebration is a reminder of how far Love will go. The power of Jesus’ resurrection was shared with his followers.  As followers of Jesus today, we have this same power available to us.  We, as believers, can have the same victory over hatred, injustice and violence that Jesus did. Easter is the story of the resurrecting power of love and hope. Life and goodness are to be celebrated always.  When we die we will experience the true power of Jesus’ resurrection. We will know forever the fullness of life and love.


Alleluia!! Easter greetings to you and all the Sisters!

Thank You ,Sister, for reminding us believers in Jesus that we are called to become victorious in the struggle to overcome hatred, injustice and violence this Easter of 2017.
