From the Desk of Our National President:
Cynthia M. Maleski
As I write this column for all of us, we are in the middle of Lent, and we have just enjoyed the first days of spring, in Beachwood, Ohio. We pray and think about how our members and their families in Nebraska and beyond are coping with the difficulties presented by the heavy flooding there and that they remain safe and sound during this season. As Jesus had, each and every one of us has a Cross in this life, and we will be presented one we can bear.
As Easter approaches, let us focus on how we can prepare our hearts and souls to celebrate this most joyous of days. As we clean our homes and prepare of foods for our Easter baskets for the Easter Saturday blessing in our churches, let us all be grateful for God’s blessings at this sacred time.
On Easter Sunday and beyond, with joyful hearts, let us sing together in joyful voice: *
"Christ is Risen from the dead,
Risen as He truly said.
Praise the Lord with joyful voice
Praise Him now, rejoice, rejoice;
Resurrexit, Sicut dixit,
Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia!"
Happy Easter to all of you!
