Welcome to St. Christopher Parish

Dear Family,

HAPPY EASTER!! John relates for us in our Second Reading today from the Book of Revelation the vision he had of the new Jerusalem coming down from the heaven of God. He used the imagery of a bride adorned with beauty for her marriage to her husband. We sometimes get so use to hearing these readings we don’t give them much thought. So let’s think about that image for a moment. On the day of a wedding, for what does everyone wait in great expectation? It is not the place of the wedding. It is not the priest or minister. It is not the music. And sorry guys, it is not the groom!! Everyone, the groom included, cannot wait to see how beautiful the bride is on her wedding day! The whole congregation turns to the doors of the church as the music changes and they rise to their feet to greet with great joy the bride as she enters! They see the beautiful dress, the flowers, the smile, the hair done beautifully and the jewels that she wears. Now take that image and place it into John’s vision! That is what he is trying to tell us the day will be like when that new and eternal Jerusalem is revealed! There will be great awe and expectation and joy! It will be beautiful beyond all imagining! And the people will rise in great exultation! What will help create this beautiful place? It is the love that God has for His people and our living out that love as instructed by Jesus in our Gospel Reading today. How do we treat others? What beauty do we add to God’s creation by the way we treat others? Our living out the Gospel message helps complete the adornment of the new Jerusalem! The jewels of our actions will shine brilliantly for all eternity as we help build up God’s kingdom!!! What are you doing to help make the new Jerusalem radiate God’s love??

Praised Be Jesus Christ…Now and Forever!!!
