Easter Is Time When We Celebrate Triumph Over Tragedy

We celebrate a miraculous triumph over death that took place more than 2,000 years ago, and also the triumphs taking place today in our lives and in the lives of our brothers and sisters in Christ.

I want to share with you a triumphant letter I received last Easter. The letter is from Fr. Vitliy Podolan, OMI Superior of our ministries in Ukraine.

This Easter season, the Missionary Oblates want to help you bring triumphs to your loved ones and the needy we serve in our missions through prayer and giving.

Submit your personal prayer requests by March 24 so they can be lifted up in the Holy Land and at our two spiritual centers in the United States.

Please consider a generous donation in support of Oblates who are helping people triumph over tragedy in the United States, Ukraine and in 70 other countries.

In gratitude for your donation, you may have a special candle lit for you or a loved one. For $25, an Easter Votive Candle will be lit at the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Snows. For $50, a Resurrection Taper Candle will be lit at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. For a gift of $30, you may receive an Easter Blessing Rosary that features Our Father beads in the shape of a flower. The rosary also has pink and green marble-like swirl beads. The centerpiece is a Miraculous Medal.

I pray that you experience many triumphs during Holy Week and throughout the year. Please pray for our Oblates in Ukraine and know that every day they pray for you because of your generous heart.
