Easter Message from Monsignor Jim Carroll P.P.

Easter Message
In our faith tradition, Easter Day is sometimes called “The Mother of all Sundays”. It’s a mighty title for the Great Day of our Christian Year – for on this day, Jesus, the Christ, broke the bonds of sin and death. And the Empty Tomb proclaims the news: He is not here, He is truly Risen – Alleluia.

Now that is Good News, ground-breaking! I think the “Empty Tomb” is an interesting image for Christians in modern Ireland and all over Europe. “Our history and our culture, our art and our architecture are filled with references to Jesus”. We are proud of that heritage. But where is Jesus himself? Has he, in some sense, been taken away from us? Or is he really alive in our
homes and society today? Where are the signs of hope? Where are the witnesses? As we celebrate Easter 2018, Jesus invites us to be his witnesses. “We don’t have to control the whole of society, any more than the first Christians did, but we do need to be present in the public space – and let people see for themselves that Jesus is alive”. Alleluia. The Empty Tomb speaks volumes. May it speak to our families during the Easter Season, as we prepare for the World Meeting of Families in August. The Blessings of Easter to one and all.

May the Risen Christ be at home with you. Praise God.
