May the Risen Christ bring you renewed hope, faith, love and joy!
The Religious of the Assumption from England and the Province of Europe wish you a blessed Easter season!
Sr Rekha, our Superior General writes:
Very dear Sisters and Friends,
We wish you – each one of You and each Sister in your Province – a Blessed Easter! As we still grapple with the pandemic of Covid – 19, we know that the virus cannot take away our joy and inner peace. Let the power of the Risen Jesus continue to be our Joy and Hope! We thank you for your prayers and support when we were sick. We keep all our Sisters, especially the elderly, fragile and sick, in our hearts and prayers. With all our affection,
Sr Rekha and the Council
Pope Francis said in his Easter message:
"Like a new flame this Good News springs up in the night: the night of a world already faced with epochal challenges and now oppressed by a pandemic severely testing our whole human family. In this night, the Church’s voice rings out: “Christ, my hope, has arisen!” (Easter Sequence).
"... Indifference, self-centredness, division and forgetfulness are not words we want to hear at this time. We want to ban these words for ever! They seem to prevail when fear and death overwhelm us, that is, when we do not let the Lord Jesus triumph in our hearts and lives. May Christ, who has already defeated death and opened for us the way to eternal salvation, dispel the darkness of our suffering humanity and lead us into the light of his glorious day, a day that knows no end."
