It’s almost here, you should receive this newsletter during Holy Week as we complete our preparations for the celebration of Our Lord’s Resurrection on Easter Sunday, April 1! Oh, what a joyous and grace filled day for each of us! We celebrate the Octave and complete the week with Divine Mercy Sunday! The graces and abundant blessings in these two weeks as we celebrate these Masses and rich liturgies are so inspiring, I encourage you to participate in as many as you can.
April is the month of the Blessed Sacrament. This would be a good month to commit to a regular Holy Hour at a nearby adoration chapel. If there aren’t any near you, can you stop in at your local parish and spend an hour with Our Lord? That time spent with the Lord will change your life, talk to Him, share your deepest thoughts, concerns, and desires with Him. Don’t look for an instant change, it might happen, but usually it comes over time. Some hours can be long and not seem very rewarding, but others will fly by. In today’s hectic world, savor this time of peace and quiet. While you are there, please say a prayer for Covenant Network!
There is a flyer enclosed for the upcoming Spring Radiothon this month. I encourage you to share it with someone else. If you’d like me to send you a flyer that you can email others, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Invite others to listen and ask them to consider supporting the apostolate. Every gift is important! Please tune in, listen and help continue the work of Covenant Network! I could also use more volunteers if you have time.
Spring is here and I’m enjoying the warmer temperatures and the grass, flowers, and trees just beginning to sprout new growth. This is my favorite season.
Finally, I wish you and your family and friends a very blessed and Holy, Happy Easter! Are you familiar with the Paschal Greeting? The first person greets someone with: He is risen! or Christ is risen! And the response is: Truly, He is risen! or He is risen, indeed!
May you rejoice in the Risen Lord!
