State Deputy Message – Bi-Weekly Briefing - Week of: April 02, 2023
Worthy Brother Knights,
“Christ is risen, He is truly risen”. Those are the words we speak on this Holy Day of Easter in proclamation of what has happened. Today we celebrate a day we call Easter. Easter as defined by Webster’s New World Dictionary is “an annual Christian festival celebrating the resurrection of Jesus”.
It is also looked upon as the beginning of Spring, trees and bushes are starting to bud, the grass is turning green, and the weather is beginning to get warmer. We see families coming to church, women in their Easter bonnets, men in their new spring clothing and children merrily anticipating returning home so they can go in the yard or in the home and look for those eggs and candies left by the Easter Bunny. Families later in the day getting together to celebrate the day with a nice ham dinner with all those trimmings.
However, as we gather around the table, let us not forget to thank God for all that he has given us. His Son who died on the cross for our salvation, for our families, friends and for the little gifts he has provided to us through our prayers. Please also pray for a full recovery for Pope Francis. On behalf of my wife Peggy and I, we wish you a Happy Easter.
Raymond A. Lemay Sr.
State Deputy, New Hampshire State Council
