Holy Week and Easter Masses and devotions

 

 

 Dear Faithful and Friends of St. Francis de Sales Oratory,

 

My prayers and blessings to you as we enter the holiest of weeks in the liturgical year. After a rigorous and penitential Lent, we now look forward to the re-enactment of the central mystery of our faith: our redemption. I invite you to participate fully in the spirit of this Holy Week by attending as many of the Masses and devotions as you are able. By immersing yourselves in these liturgical rites you will be accompanying Our Lord as He shares His last supper and His own precious Body and Blood with us, as He endures His painful torture and death, and finally as He triumphs over death to bring us our own hope of everlasting life with Him. As St. Paul says, “If Christ be not risen, our faith is in vain.”

           

 

 

May our Divine Savior bless you abundantly this Easter with a stronger faith, a more joyful hope, and a more ardent love for Him.

 

            Yours devotedly in Christ,

 

            Fr. Karl W. Lenhardt

            Episcopal Delegate/Rector/Vice Provincial
