May the God of hope bring you such joy and peace in your faith
 that the power of the Holy Spirit will remove all bounds to hope.
Romans 15:13

In 2019, Brothers and Lasallians participated in a private audience with Pope Francis. In his remarks, the Holy Father called on us to create a “culture of resurrection”.  He asked us to “restore life to areas where poverty and suffering have taken away the hope of a future”.  Francis’ words have become especially significant as we respond to the global health crisis. 

My Easter wish for each of you – Brothers, Partners, Students, and members of the Lasallian Family – is that we rise from the cross of the pandemic, transformed to new life, to a new Pentecost with renewed purpose, responding creatively and enthusiastically to the challenges we are facing in our pandemic-stricken world.

May your responses ease the anxieties of our suffering sisters and brothers, especially those who are poor. And may you be happy witnesses to the Holy Spirit-inspired hope that fills our hearts with joy.

Happy Easter!
