Christ is risen! We, like the early followers of the Lord Jesus, do not yet understand the Scripture that He had to rise from the dead. Even today, some two thousand years after the birth of our Lord, we still find it difficult to believe that He rose from the dead and that He is God and that He has saved us. Far too often we live as if Jesus were only a sort of good and moral leader who keeps urging us to be good.
The first reading, from the Acts of the Apostles, tells us that God raised Jesus from the dead on the third day and has given us the forgiveness of our sins if we believe in Him. That is so difficult to believe at so many levels of our lives, and yet if we do believe that our sins are forgiven, our lives are changed forever. We can begin to think of what is above--not spatially because we don't think that way any more, but in terms of what lies ahead of us and beyond us at this present time.
Today's Gospel shows Simon Peter and the other disciple running to the tomb. When the other disciple gets there, he looks in but does not go in. Instead he waits for Simon Peter to go in first. The other disciple gives his own testimony: he saw and he believed.
As we begin to celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus this year, let us remember the words: saw and believed. We are called to look at our world and at our Church--and believe that God is present. We are called to see and believe that God is in all peoples and in those who are around us. Seeing and believing. Why? Because Christ has risen from the dead and invites us to share His divine life. Why? Because God has loved us even from the womb and before all time.
Let us rejoice and be glad. Christ is risen. Alleluia.

Come, Worship With Us on Sunday
You are invited to join us at 10:00 on any Sunday morning to attend Mass at our church. No matter your background, ethnicity, or denomination, we don't look at that. Just people with good will looking for some place to fill out their souls. If you need comfort, a place to pray, this is the place. We do not judge—it's not up to us to judge. All are welcome.
The Mass liturgy is celebrated in English and booklets are available for you to follow the service in comfort. Please come and worship along side the friendly people of St. Casimir’s.
We are very thankful for the response we have received from our websie readers! In the very short period of time since we created our site, we have received many messages from you via the Contact Us page with comments and questions about our activities, and requests for information about our church, our cemetery and the PNCC in general. How wonderful that is! Thank you very much.
We would like to apologize, however, for our failure to keep the site current. We have a lot going on at St. Casimir's and our volunteer parishioners are really very busy. We are working on a plan to maintain the website on a more current schedule and ask your indulgence. In order to make the site even more interesting, we are in the process of redesigning it as yu will see in the coming weeks....please send us your comments as we progress.
Your prayers are requested
for the sick, shut ins and those serving in our military.
