2019: Easter Greetings to Everyone…

V. Regina caeli, laetare, alleluia.
Queen of heaven, rejoice, alleluia.

R. Quia quem meruisti portare, alleluia,
For he whom you did merit to bear, alleluia,

V. Resurrexit, sicut dixit, alleluia.
Has risen as he said, alleluia.

R. Ora pro nobis Deum, alleluia.
Pray for us to God, alleluia. 

V. Rejoice and be glad, O Virgin Mary, alleluia.
R. For the Lord has truly risen, alleluia.

Let us pray.
O God, who gave joy to the world through the resurrection of Thy Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, grant we beseech Thee, that through the intercession of the Virgin Mary, His Mother, we may obtain the joys of everlasting life.
Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.   

Comment: 

Our Blogger, Margaret USA, asked me to post this commentary of Bishop Schneider about the fire at Notre Dame – I’d just placed a headline in our forthcoming May newsletter about the fire at Notre Dame being a metaphor for the destruction (humanly speaking) of the Church when it arrived in my inbox, so it was well timed.  Those of our newsletter readers who are not online will draw some comfort from it, no doubt.  What about you?  

A Very Happy Easter To One & All!

Trusting that everyone has enjoyed a peaceful Lent and Holy Week – welcome back!  

Feel free to share favourite prayers, hymns, stories etc on the Easter theme, on this thread.

We may also use this thread to “catch up” on news and views. Whatever! 

A very happy Easter to one and all!

Happy Easter Everyone… & Stuff…

As well as affording us the opportunity to post Easter greetings, this thread is also a “catch all” – feel free to post comments on anything we would have discussed last week, but for the holiday. And the usual rule applies in a free-for-all thread like this – good clean fun, jokes and stories, welcome… which reminds me of the boy who asked his father why we paint Easter eggs.  Reply: Because it’s easier than trying to wallpaper them!

Happy Easter everyone!
