All of us no of someone friend or family member that has passed away.  Today on this Easter Sunday the promise of Christ in His resurrection assures us as Christians the gift of eternal life in Heaven.  Thus, we can not forget to live a life and strive daily to free ourselves from the bondage of sin.  Sin is everywhere and more prevalent to us in this time.  The Church is being prosecuted and people are follow the ways of satan.  Strive to free yourself from sin on a daily basis.  Go to confession and do penance.  We must live in the promise of Christ and free ourselves from worldly desires and take up our cross.  “Be not afraid”.  He is always with us.  God bless everyone on this Easter Sunday.
