2012 Paschal Greetings from Archbishop Joseph


“And looking up, they saw that the stone was rolled back; it was very large. And entering the tomb, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, dressed in a white robe; and they were amazed. And he said to them, ‘Do not be amazed; you seek Jesus of Nazareth, Who was crucified. He is risen, He is not here; see the place where they laid Him. But go, tell His Disciples and Peter that He is going before you to Galilee; there you will see Him, as He told you’” (Mark 16:4-7)

Christ is risen!

لمسيح ارتفع! حقا انه زاد!

Хрңстос Воскресе! Воистину Воскресе!

Χριστὸς ἀνέστη! Άληθώς Άνέστη!

Beloved in Christ:
Words of joy are brought to us by this Great and Holy Feast of the Resurrection of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. As we take the time to ponder the depth of the meaning of this wondrous feast, the salvation brought to us through His death and resurrection, let us come together to truly celebrate this day the Lord has made to redeem us. May we experience a deeper renewal of our own faith and may those who need the hope of salvation be brought to say, “Christ is risen from the dead, trampling down death by death.”

Glory to Thy Holy Resurrection, O Lord!

Yours in the Risen Lord,

+Archbishop JOSEPH
