A Message from Bishop Foys

My dear Friends,

The Lord Jesus is risen from the dead! He has conquered sin and death once and for all time. What immense joy the Apostles must have felt when they beheld the risen Jesus. He had kept His word. Their belief in Him was not in vain. And that same joy the Apostles experienced when they beheld Jesus risen from the dead can also be ours. Those who have faith, those who believe, those who put their trust in Jesus can enjoy the comfort, consolation and security that the Apostles felt that first Easter morn.

I pray that each of you will have a truly joyous Easter season and that you will rest secure in the knowledge that Jesus has indeed conquered sin and death, has overcome the grave and is indeed the way, the truth and the life for each of us.

Be assured of my prayers. Please, pray for me.

Yours devotedly in the Lord,

Most Rev. Roger J. Foys, D.D.
