My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who in his great mercy gave us a new birth to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you …” (Peter 1:3-5)

Our lives are greatly diminished apart from the cross of Jesus Christ. And the cross of Jesus Christ has little value for us without the Resurrection. In the Father giving away his Son, his only and deepest desire was and is to have a relationship with those whom he has called his own — each and every one of us.

During this sacred time of Easter, we celebrate the depth of God’s love for us. My prayers remain with you and your families as we celebrate this great gift of Easter. May Jesus set your hearts aflame with his love so that we all become bearers of Christ’s radiant glory, filling the world with this new life.

Happy Easter!

Peace and love in Christ,
+Bishop Robert Gruss
