“No One Is Shut Out from This Joy”

“No One Is Shut Out from This Joy” March 31, 2024

“No one is shut out from this joy; all share the same reason for rejoicing. Our Lord, victor over sin and death, finding no man free from sin, came to free us all. Let the saint rejoice as he sees the palm of victory at hand. Let the sinner be glad as he receives the offer of forgiveness. Let the pagan take courage as he is summoned to life.”  —St. Leo the Great

[Leo (400-460 A.D.) said this in a Christmas sermon, but it still applies!  Have a joyous Easter!]
