  • An Easter Message from Bishop Hollingsworth

    In the first collect for Easter Day we pray, “Grant us so to die daily to sin, that we may evermore live with him in the joy of his resurrection.” Even after the forty-day fast of Lent, we continue daily to empty ourselves of all that separates us from God and one another, so that there will be room in our lives for this new life given to us in the resurrection of Jesus. In a sense, we seek continually to be like Joseph of Arimathea’s borrowed tomb on the third day, emptied of death and fear and sorrow, and liberated by Jesus to embrace what the Eucharistic prayer calls “new and unending life in him.”
