Easter Message 2020 from Archbishop Anthony Fisher OP
The Resurrection of the Body
Easter at Home
The Coronavirus has disrupted our regular communal prayers . Below is and excerpt from Cardinal Beniamino Stella in an article from the Crux gives light and direction to persisting with even more prayer which is greater intimacy with the Lord in our the home during this isolation.
“Citing an excerpt from Alessandro Manzoni’s experience about the plague in his book The Betrothed, Stella said he personally found comfort in the author’s statement that “God never disturbs the joy of his children except to send a greater joy.”
“I found this expression truly consoling for our lives,” he said. “I believe that in the absence of rites, of physical participation, we must find in these circumstances a profound way of greater intimacy with the Lord to communicate with the church, with the sacraments.”
