Sister Jeanne Ann Weber – Easter Blessings!

Christ is risen! He is risen indeed, alleluia! Let all creation praise and exult in the wonders of this holy solemnity! Death begets life, darkness begets light, evil begets goodness, despair is turned to hope, the impossible becomes possible, and sorrow is turned to joy. Let us indeed be Easter people praising Christ in the great paschal mystery of his total self-giving love that we may have life, Life to the full in Him and with one another.

The Sisters of St. Scholastica Monastery

pray for Christ’s choicest blessings

upon you and yours during this joyous season.

The following is a poem written by Marce Wood who was a lay associate at our Monastery. She also is an artist and her picture bespeaks the Resurrection of Christ.

 

EASTER

Oh come and replenish our longing hearts!
All Praises to You Lord Jesus Christ!
Oh Blessed Sunrise!
Eastern light returns!
Holiest Jesus, our Savior Arises!
empties his tomb
and fills our hearts fresh
with hope
Baptism of Light!
every morning spring!
pregnant with promise
most ripe!
most divine!
mook’ meyaab ziigwan!

O God of Eternal Light
thank you for your splendid gift
You pour your love as waterfall!
we bathe and bask
in your magnificent and rapturous light!
we rise to greet you
Oh Beloved Jesus!
we sing you all praises

with our enlivened hearts
