At the beginning of this Easter Season, we want to greet you from Assumption Seminary. This seminary wants to be the true expression of a community of believers rooted in the Paschal Mystery of Jesus Christ.
The gospel of the Easter Sunday Mass says to us that: “On the first day of the week, Mary of Magdala came to the tomb early in the morning, while it was still dark, and saw the stone removed from the tomb. So, she ran and went to Simon Peter and to the other disciple whom Jesus loved, and told them, “They have taken the Lord from the tomb, and we don’t know where they put him.” So, Peter and the other disciple went out and came to the tomb. They both ran, but the other disciple ran faster than Peter and arrived at the tomb first; he bent down and saw the burial cloths there, but did not go in.” (John 20:1-5)
As imitators of Peter and “the other disciple whom Jesus loved,” we want to run to discover the marvelous gifts of the Risen Lord in our lives. We want to be loved by Jesus and to love one another in the world as a sign of our loyalty to the Master, our Lord Jesus Christ, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
In these fifty days of the Easter Season, we offer our humble prayers for you all and for your intentions; at the same time, we ask for your support and prayers that we may answer God’s call. We want to be servant leaders committed in spreading the good news of His gospel not only with our words, but also with our deeds of service and compassion to the suffering world.
Many blessings and pray for us, Father Jaime E. Robledo, PSS
