Parish Priest's Easter Message
Dear parishioners, pilgrims and devotees of St. Peregrine,
Easter is a time of joy, a joyous occasion, a season of renewal, a time of extreme worship because it denotes Jesus’ resurrection as one of awe, wonder and reverence. Wishing you a wonderful Easter filled with peace and happiness!
We celebrate Easter each year and it comes to remind us of the love of a Perfect God for flawed mankind. Jesus Christ died on the cross. He was buried and on the third day He rose again to bring hope to the world. If there was ever a day that gives us hope…. it is Resurrection Sunday. In fact, that’s why the Church gathers week by week on Sunday, the Lord’s Day for worship, rather than on Saturday, the Sabbath: to celebrate and commemorate the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. In fact, every Sunday is a celebration of the empty tomb. A celebration that Jesus is alive. Its empty tomb of Jesus that gives us hope. Hope in the here-in-now and hope in the here-after. The hope of forgiveness. The hope of peace. The hope of assurance. The hope of Heaven and that hope is centered in the person of Jesus Christ.
As we celebrate this wonderful holiday remember that Christ gave His life for us willingly and unconditionally and so we should extend the same love to our family, friends and others around us. This is the time to send good wishes and greetings to loved ones to let them know that we are thinking about them and sharing the joy of Easter with them. Use this time to patch up strained relationships and strengthen the ones you already have by sharing your heart and love with loved ones. Let this be the time when grace is poured out from us to others, help other realize that even dreams, hopes and plans seem dead, they can resurrect and gain new life. Spread hope all around.

ST. PEREGRINE LAZIOSI
In 1283 Saint Philip, Prior General of the Friar Servants of Saint Mary, attempted to lead back to obedience to the Apostolic See the citizens of Forlì then under interdict. He was driven out of the city with insults and violence. While this true follower of Christ was praying for his persecutors, one of the crowd, an eighteen year old by the name of Peregrine of the famous Laziosi family, repented and humbly asked Philip for forgiveness. The holy Father received him with love. From that moment the young man began to scorn the vanities of the world and to pray most fervently to the Blessed Virgin, asking that she show him the way of salvation. A few years later, guided by the Virgin, he received the habit of Our Lady in the priory of Siena where he…
"While they were still incredulous for joy and were amazed, he asked them, "Have you anything here to eat?" They gave him a piece of baked fish; he took it and ate it in front of them." (Lk 24: 41-43 ). While meals can certainly be a way of obtaining calories and...
Peace be with you! Jesus greets His disciples with peace not just once but three times. Our Lord always brings us assurance of His love and mercy despite of our doubts and fears. Jesus gives us peace wrapped up in loving God, ever ready to embrace and forgive us....
