Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Jesus is ALIVE! The Tomb is EMPTY! Brothers and sisters, Jesus overcame death to set the captives free, you and I. This season make sure you come out of your tomb and accept the RISEN CHRIST into your life this Easter.
The best way we continue on our way to meeting the risen Lord this Easter is to repent from our sins, go to the Sacrament of Reconciliation, and go to Mass. Acknowledge that we are sinners, but also accept the mercy of Christ through His death and resurrection that has set us free. Oh, to be washed clean! Oh, Jesus, thank You for Good Friday. Thank You for the Resurrection, for in these lie our hope and this "hope will not leave us disappointed" (see Rm 5:5).
"That is why 'it was credited to him as righteousness.' But it was not for him alone that it was written that 'it was credited to him' it was also for us, to whom it will be credited, who believe in the one who raised Jesus our Lord from the dead, who was handed over for our transgressions and was raised for our justification" (see Rm 4:22-25).
It is our mission at Presentation Ministries to help you, our brothers and sisters in Jesus, to obtain a closer relationship with Jesus through the word and through frequent use of the sacraments. For the daily Mass readings, visit our website www.presentationministries.com. Listen to our Daily Bread broadcast, register for a retreat, read a booklet by Fr. Al Lauer, listen to an audio by Fr. Al or watch a video. Remember, St. Paul, tell us to, "not continue in ignorance" (see Eph 5:17).
Did you know you can get Fr. Al's teachings in video format on YouTube? YouTube is available to view on the smart phone, PC, Tablet, Smart TV and Roku TV. Simply search for Presentation Ministries and subscribe to the channel. Note that the playlist selections are complete courses.
Please continue to spread God's loving word!
Your brothers and sister in Christ,
Deacon George Schmidl, Judy Erwin, Mark Mussman
