Thoughts for Easter Week

In Lent the Door of Mercy is Opened – as it is throughout the year.

Loving God, may I never forget that your arms are open to me in forgiveness and love.

Jesus, the Lamb of God, takes away the sins of the world; let us pray for mercy.



Happy Easter to you all – Fr. Leo Pyle
