Easter Message

As we celebrate the beautiful feast of Easter, I pray that the Risen Lord will pour down many blessings on every person in Balla and Mayo Abbey parishes, on all who are spending Easter with us and on our family members who are away from home.
The feast is one of hope. Jesus who died on the cross out of love for us has overcome death and the grave and has won for us the gift of new and eternal life. Easter also reminds us that we are never alone. In good times and in bad, in joy and in sorrow the Risen Lord is with us. Let us rejoice in his presence, draw comfort and support from it and make it known by our daily living.
As we celebrate in the resurrection I pray that your hearts will be filled with peace and joy, may this beautiful Feast be uplifting for you. May it encourage us as we face the joys and sorrows that come our way in life. May it also be a reminder to us that our loved ones who have died have been called to share in the fullness of new life. May they rest in peace and may all of us take comfort from the Risen Lord.

May His blessings be with you all.
Fr Denis
