My dearly beloved Sisters,

The lamentations of the past week have given way to Canticles and Hymns of exultation. The mourning draperies are replaced by vestments of rejoicing – and shall we, who have bewailed the sufferings of our Crucified Lord, not also put off our garments of mourning and join our voices with the throng that waft their Alleluias heavenward at the joy of the Resurrection?

That you may all participate in the glorious promise of the Risen Saviour is the desire I form in my heart for each dear sister.

A bright, happy Easter filled with hope and charity, the fruit of a well spent Lent is the wish I offer you!!

Believe me dear Sisters in the Immaculate heart of Mary, Affectionately yours,
Mother M. Edward, Superior General
