Easter Time: Spiritual Peace

Through his Death and Resurrection, Jesus defeated sin, death, and the power of the Devil. With our spiritual foes vanquished, we can now enter into God’s peace. Indeed, the Risen Christ’s first words to his apostles were “Peace be with you.” During the Easter season, we have the opportunity to experience spiritual peace more fully. Each week, we will contemplate a different aspect of Christ’s peace. OLL parishioners and LANE students will receive weekly emails throughout Easter Time.
