Brother Knights at Union Council 4504,
Easter like Spring is time for renewal. Every year Easter is the same because every spring we celebrate that great event that turned our lives around before we were born. God raised Jesus from the dead. Jesus had taken our sins on his shoulders and died for us so that we would not have to experience—and suffer from—the separation that sin causes. Every Spring the flowers and trees come back to life and show the signs of new life in their colorful blooms and green leaves giving way to the gray of Winter.
Each year Easter is different since each year we are a little different. We are each a year older, maybe a little wiser, and certainly more experienced. Because of this, each Lent is a chance for us to look back at our year and see where we are in our relationship with God, family, friends, our self and all of creation. Every Easter, we can renew our commitments to what we think is important in our lives. Each Spring is also different, giving way to brighter and warmer weather especially after all the snow and cold we had this year.
This year make the most of this renewal and get more involved with your Church and Parish, with your Family and Friends, and with the Knights of Columbus and your Council.
May you and your Family have a Blessed and Happy Easter.
