The Easter Vigil is the most significant moment in the church for me. We re-live Jesus' death, and most importantly, his resurrection that is an on-going process of salvation. They resonate joy and hope in my heart. Having been born on Easter day may have given it more significance. On that special day, I anticipate the witnessing of the sacraments of Baptism and Confirmation being conferred upon our new brothers and sisters, in addition to receiving in full the promise of salvation of our Lord. What a joyous time of fulfillment! A true Easter moment.
Look for the joy in the faces of our new brothers and sisters in the Lord.
Bishop Larry Silva led the prayers and blessed each catechumen from several of our parishes who will be baptized and or confirmed tonight at Easter Vigil. Deacon Modesto assisted in the prayers. Fr. William Kunisch and Fr. John Berger were in attendance.
Morning prayers based on the Liturgy of the Hours was held at the Cathedral of Our Lady of Peace in Honolulu, Hawai'i. Music was created and cantored by Calvin Liu, Cathedral's music director.
