On the Mark February 4th 2010 - Easter

By Fr. Christopher P. Leighton, April 4, 2010 7:00 am

“I Will Sing Unto the Lord for He

Has Triumphed Gloriously!”

We sing praises to God for He has triumphed gloriously.  Defeated is death;  overcome is evil;  sin is forgiven and illness is healed.  Jesus is risen, Alleluia!

St. Paul’s, you have kept the season of Lent and put off the old in order to put on the new.  New we are challenged by the risen Lord Jesus to live in the power of His resurrection.  The Lord offers us power to live for Him and for others.  Miracles follow as we know Christ and make Him known.

The Easter season, which lasts this year until May 23, is the time to emphasize the victorious life.  As you sing the Lord’s praises today be conscious of His great love for you.  Let’s celebrate the new life we have in Christ!

“Sing to the Lord a new song;  sing to the Lord, all the earth.  Sing to the Lord, praise His name;  proclaim His salvation day after day.  Declare His glory among the nations, His marvelous deeds among all the peoples!”  [Psalm 96:1-3]

May your Feast of the Resurrection be blessed by the One who is Himself the Resurrection and the Life.

Your brother in Christ


The Rev. Christopher P. Leighton
