To the Stewards and Friends of Philoptochos,
Last week, as we neared the beginning of Holy Week and the end of our Lenten journey, we learned of the raging inferno in Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, France. Media reports of devastating destruction quickly spread, with film of the collapsing spire shown over and over again. And then came the reassuring news that the cathedral structure had been spared and would be restored.
But nothing was more moving or more inspiring than the image of the Cathedral’s altar and illuminated gold Cross. In the midst of smoke and flames, the altar Cross, glistening still with hope and wonder, brought us peace and comfort, and assured us of the certainty of God’s love, of the sacrifice of His Only Son, and of the promise of rebirth and renewal.
To the Stewards and Friends of Philoptochos, I pray that Pascha will bring Christ’s love, peace and joy to your hearts and your lives.
