A Message from Bishop Foys

Easter 2017

My dear Friends in Christ,

The Lord is Risen! Alleluia! He has conquered the grave! Alleluia! He has conquered death! Alleluia! Let us rejoice and be glad!

In a world battered by turmoil, where innocent people are at risk of terrorist attacks at any moment, in any place, where do find comfort? Where do we find consolation? Where do find security? Where do we find peace? Only, my friends, in Jesus Christ, crucified for us and raised from the dead! He alone is our hope!

For if the Lord is for us, who can be against us? Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will anguish, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or the sword? No, in all these things we conquer overwhelmingly through Him who has loved us. For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor present things, nor future things, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord! (Romans 8:31-39)

At this Easter Season I wish each of a world filled with the peace and love that only Jesus Christ can bring! May we live each day in the Lord’s presence! The Lord is Risen! Alleluia!

Yours devotedly in the Lord,
Most Rev. Roger J. Foys, D.D.
Bishop of Covington
