"Consult not your fears but your hopes and your dreams. Think not about your frustrations, but about your unfulfilled potential. Concern yourself not with what you tried and failed in, but with what it is still possible for you to do." ― Pope John XXIII

"The future starts today, not tomorrow."
― Pope John Paul II



Dear People of St. Andrew the Apostle:

May the blessings of Easter be yours in abundance.

The message of Easter is this: the tomb is empty! No tomb, no matter how well made, can hold the Son of God. The power of God's love is stronger than suffering and death. The high priests of Jesus' day, the roman governor, and all who were responsible for Jesus' death thought they had won a victory. But the victory is God's. The message of Easter is that no power on earth, no matter how strong, no matter how evil, no matter how much it may look like it has victory...no power on earth can overcome the compassion and the mercy of God's love!

The tomb is empty. What this means for us is that there is no tomb on earth that can claim us either:

Not the tomb of depression
Not the tomb of despair
Not the tomb of addiction
Not the tomb of a failed relationship
Not the tomb of illness, or pain
Not the tomb of suffering
Not the tomb of grief over loss of a loved one
Not the tomb of personal failure or disgrace
Not any other tomb that may engulf us.

At times in our lives, we may be engulfed in what seems like a darkness so powerful that it feels we are trapped in a tomb. We may think that there is no way out. We may ask ourselves, "What am I to do now? It seems like there is no meaning or purpose to my life."

And yet Easter teaches us that there is no tomb over which Jesus has not gained victory. Jesus is alive. Jesus is risen. Jesus is in our midst.

God is not dead! Our task as followers of Jesus is to make that message clear to the world: God is not dead! It is not just our God-given mission, it is our moral imperative. All prayer, all ministry, all good works, all that we are should point to others the reality that God is in our midst.

May God bless you this Easter and always.
Fr. John
