Dear Jesus, at the Last Supper, you blessed us with the beauty of the Eucharist, a sign of love and unity.  Your song at this meal resonates through our liturgy and our lives.  It echoes in our work and play.  Your song calls us forward along paths of goodness and justice, along paths that will lead us home. 

Wishing you all a very blessed Easter weekend!  May we always remember that as faithful followers of Jesus, we carry His light within our minds, our hearts, and souls.  Let us always allow that light to shine through us every day. 

See you all on Tuesday!
