Rev. Moon’s message for April 24, 2022

Dear Friends,

Happy Easter to you! Christ is risen!

Resurrection of Christ” (1499–1502) by Italian painter Raphael (1483–1520); from the collection of the São Paulo Museum of Art; taken from the Wikimedia Commons.

I would like to share an email (I have permission) that I received from an elder, Christianne: 

A neighbour down the street went into labour!  She walked to my house, and rang the bell. I opened the door, she was very flushed, heavily breathing, very pregnant and said ‘Hi, I am in labour, but before I call 911, are you able to stay with my two kids for the night?’ What a mommy and trooper! My heart and spirit were in awe of her. Her hubby is driving back from Montreal tonight. I just put her kiddos down and now able to email you all. It was a beautiful reminder to me, that amongst the turmoil, chaos and death tolls of the world, life continues, new beginnings are occurring, God’s children are being born and joyful blessings are experienced daily!

When I read the email, I heard the angels singing Christ is risen!  May we discover and celebrate many signs of the risen Christ around us!

(Update from Christianne-Her neighbour had a girl. Both the mother and the baby are healthy.)
