Easter letter from Bishop Burbidge

First slide

April 21, 2019

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

May Our Lord's triumph fill your hearts with joy this sacred Season of Easter and always!

The Resurrection of Jesus Christ brings an end to gloom and darkness — it is the source of our hope. In proclaiming the Good News of the Resurrection, the Apostles radiated Christ's love so that all might receive the new life obtained through His sacrifice. As disciples of Jesus, we too have been called out of the darkness of this world into His wonderful light.

Made one by Our Redeemer, we are sent forth as the light of the world. May we, especially at this time in the life of our nation and church, radiate the light of Christ in our communities by the example of faithful and holy lives and by the compassion we extend to those most in need.

I pray that Almighty God will abundantly bless you and your families during this sacred Season of Easter. Through the intercession of Mary our Mother, may you come to share in the life of Our Risen Lord now and forever.

Sincerely in Christ,

Most Reverend Michael F. Burbidge

Bishop of the Diocese of Arlington
