I am hoping that the faculty, students and parents are beginning to relax and enjoy a well-deserved break from distance learning and these uncertain times. We hope and pray together for a timely recovery of the entire Albertus community experiencing health and economic issues caused by this pandemic.
As I write this letter, it is Good Friday, a very significant day in Holy Week, in which we recognize the ultimate sacrifice made by Jesus, Our Lord. Good Friday leads up to the Resurrection on Easter Sunday. Our Faith rests on the miracle of the Resurrection. In these most trying times, I ask that we reflect on something that I recently read. Good Friday always has an Easter Sunday. This has such significance, not only in our Faith, but it gives all of us hope and the comfort of healing which is so very important in the days to come.
Please take the time to view the additional attachment on the Stations of the Cross, that Sr. Nancy shared with me, which was done by the Caldwell Dominican Sisters. It is well done and does an excellent job of connecting the present suffering in our world to Our Lords Passion. Also, as I had mentioned last week, please join Cardinal Dolan for Easter Sunday Mass at 10 a.m. from St Patrick’s Cathedral. It will be televised live on PIX 11, with the audio broadcast available on The Catholic Channel, Sirius XM 129.
As we celebrate the miracle of Easter Sunday, I wish you and the Albertus community a Blessed and Happy Easter. Count your many blessings and appreciate and enjoy your families.
Please pray for each other. Especially pray for essential personnel, health care professionals and first responders who are on the front-line of this pandemic and risk their health every day.
St. Albert the Great Pray for Us
