Richard SageAlleluia! Christ is risen; truly, He is risen! That Easter greeting offers all of us hope, encouragement and perseverance. We know the struggles that so many people face. We know the power of despair. We also know the power of the Resurrection. We know the power of God to bring hope out of despair. We truly believe that even though we are still in the shadow of Good Friday, we can see the empty tomb; and after the suffering and death there is the joy of life and resurrection. This is the day the Lord has made! This is the day that makes all the difference. May we open our hearts to Jesus in the same way that He opened the tomb as He rose victorious over death, so that the blessings of hope can enter into our lives. From all of us at Catholic Charities, may each one of you have a joyous and blessed Easter! Deacon Richard Sage Executive Director
