A Message from Msgr. Zapfel


Easter 2018

Dear member of St. Leo the Great Parish family:

Each morning, Monday through Saturday, Mass is celebrated in our parish chapel.  A few years ago we installed three beautiful new stained glass windows there.  Specifically designed for the space, they depict scenes from the life of Jesus:  the Nativity, the Crucifixion, and the Resurrection. The artist liked the idea of having a bit of the cross overlap both the Nativity and the Resurrection scenes, but said that to make that happen, the cross would have to be much larger than the other figures.  That was no problem for me, as we best understand the gift of the birth of Jesus when we remember that He was destined for the cross and we best understand the Resurrection of Jesus in light of the cross.

These beautiful windows teach us what we know and believe as Catholics:  that the mysteries of the Lord which we celebrate during Lent and Easter are connected and that they reveal their true meaning only when understood in relation to each other.   This, too, is often how God relates to us and our families:  we celebrate births, we are grateful for our blessings and bear the crosses in life, and we trust and hope that, in the end, the victory will be ours in the Lord.   Our Catholic faith is nourished by the great mystery that is Christ and His love for us.

The love of Jesus, which we remember as we gather to celebrate the Lord’s Supper on Holy Thursday, His Crucifixion on Good Friday, and His Resurrection, is renewed in our hearts through these holy days.  At Easter we both remember the victory of Christ over sin and death and we with faith look forward to His coming.  We walk with Jesus each day, sharing in the blessings and the crosses of life.  Easter reminds why we were made, reminds us of our destiny:  to rise one day in the Lord and to live forever with and in Him.

Our parish family welcomes all to share Holy Week this year in our parish.  Perhaps there is a family member or friend who is waiting for an invitation from you to come with you to church.  A warm welcome to all is found in God’s house and among His people in our parish family.

Please pray for our parish family.  You and your family are in my prayers as well.  Happy Easter to all!  With gratitude and prayers,

Rev. Msgr. Robert E. Zapfel, Pastor
