Signs of New Life

05-16-2021Pastor's CornerRev. Robert J. Deehan, V.F.

After a long winter in the middle of a pandemic, it’s refreshing to hear birds chirping, to see buds blossoming and spring flowers beaming their beautiful colors. These signs of new life, new beginnings and renewal are harbingers of what, we pray, is coming soon to our world that has been overwhelmed by Covid-19. I share with you below a prayer from the Christophers that reflects the hope of new life, which we celebrate in this Easter season. To learn more about the Christophers, visit


Jesus, we give thanks for the renewal You bring to our lives.
In Your sacrifice, You showed us that God’s love is the source of all life. Help us to see the hand of Providence at work in all of creation.
As the world springs back to life after winter, awaken our souls to the joy of the Resurrection.
In the warmth of sunshine, the songs of birds, the flowering of foliage, guide us to see hope of renewal in our own lives.
May we always embrace the life-giving power of Your love and mold ourselves after Your merciful ways.

God bless you!
Fr. Bob
