Christ is Risen, Alleluia, Alleluia!  Today marks the singular event in all of history that changed the lives of human beings forever.  This day Christians throughout the entire world celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.  We rejoice with the Church and in Christ that the promise has been kept and that sin and death have lost their power.  During the forty days of Lent we were asked to prepare ourselves for the great gift of Easter through prayer penance and charitable works.  The Church invited us to walk the journey of faith with our Lord and to see the face of Christ in others.  To look upon others as Jesus saw them and to treat others as Jesus did.  As Christians we were asked to provide shelter for the homeless, to give food to the hungry, to pray for the dead and to reach out in compassion to those in need, to cloth the naked, to support the young mother preparing to give birth to their children, to bring joy to those imprisoned and in half-way homes as they attempt to rebuild their lives and to give a warm welcome to the stranger who has now become a friend.  Since the beginning of Lent, the parishioners of this wonderful parish have worked tirelessly to deepen their awareness of the needs of the less fortunate here in our community.  We here at St. Matthews, have traveled the road to Emmaus and you have found the Lord.  Thank you for all that you do and for all that you are. I would like you to know how very pleased I am to be here and how very proud I am to be the spiritual leader of such a vibrant Faith Community.  Please be assured that you and your families will be remembered in my prayers and at all the Masses here at St. Matthew on Easter Sunday.  Deacon Jim McCluskey, Sister Clare Marsico and the sisters in our convent wish all of you a very Blessed Easter.  May the Lord in His goodness bless you all with Easter joy and the sense of hope which it brings both now and in the years to come. Again, Happy Easter to everyone!

Lenten Regulations

All Catholics, who are 14 years of age and older, as a minimal obligation, are bound to abstain from eating meat on Good Friday.  Further, all Catholics who are 18 years of age and older, up to and including their 59th birthday, are bound to fast by limiting themselves to a single full meal on Good Friday, while the other two smaller meals are permitted as necessary to maintain strength according to one’s needs, but eating solid foods between meals is not permitted.  During Lent, the Church encourages attendance at daily Mass, self-imposed times of fasting, and generosity to local, national, and worldwide programs of sharing.
