Happy Easter!

“Today we are united with the universal Church in rejoicing in the victory of Jesus Christ, the One who dispelled the power of darkness, who turned suffering to glory and even death to life. In uniting ourselves to him, we share in His victory and discover the grace and strength we need to walk in faith during our earthly journey so that one day we will live with Him forever.

In this Jubilee Year of Mercy, we are especially reminded that the Risen Lord offers us newness of life through the forgiveness of our sins. As his witnesses, we are to radiate the joy that is ours in being made a new creation in Christ. We are also to imitate Christ and offer forgiveness to those who have offended us so that nothing separates or divides us. Our witness will also be enhanced when others see us fervent in prayer, generous in service, and joyful in hope.”

Most Reverend Michael F. Burbidge
Bishop of Raleigh
