"Timely Ministry Resources for Black Catholics"
Auxiliary Bishop, Archdiocese of New Orleans
Chairman of the Subcommittee on African American Affairs
Dear friends in Christ:
As African-Americans, in a particular way we know that suffering does not have the final word...
Jesus Christ is Risen! Alleluia!! Alleluia!!
Throughout the season of Easter, we rejoice in the resurrection of the Lord and in the new life it promises to all born of water and the Holy Spirit in Baptism. Those who humbly serve the needs of others as disciples of our Risen Lord will know his love, and the power of his victory over sin and death. As African-Americans, in a particular way we know that suffering does not have the final word in our lives, and that new life can come forth from pain and death. Empowered by the Resurrection of the Lord, may we all seek to worship the Risen Lord with reverence, and in His name to serve the needs of others to the best of our ability.
May the joy of the season of Easter be poured upon you and all of those dear to you!
Alleluia!+Shelton J. Fabre
