This year, perhaps more than ever, we may be in touch with a sense of the world’s uncertainty and suffering. Yet the Easter season provides the opportunity to access joy in the midst of pain and confidence in the promise of resurrection–that life and love that triumph over death, forever.

Psalm 30:5 reminds us that “weeping may remain for a night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.”

Similarly, after Jesus died, followers of Jesus who were “downcast”, were walking the road to Emmaus, and through encountering the resurrected Jesus, became “incredulous for joy and amazed.” (Luke 24:41)

The Catholic Foundation is here to help you give with joy, and support our community in life-giving ways that will endure in perpetuity.

From all of us at the Catholic Foundation, we wish you a very joyous Easter.
