How to resurrect with Christ

“If then you were raised together with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated on the right hand of God” (Colossians 3:1)

Beloved in Christ
Hierarchs, clergy and faithful, 
Of this God-protected Archdiocese

Christ is risen! Indeed He is risen!

Christ defeated death! We are no longer subject to it; rather we are Christ´s, who gave us “the right to be God´s children” (John 1:12) and to be His “friends” (John 15:15)! What great news! What a great gift! What a great reality! An eternal bond is granted to whoever believes in Christ as Savior from death -- divine adoption in Christ´s name!

Fue asesinado un sacerdote Jesuita en Siria

8 Abril 2014

El director de la Oficina de Prensa del Vaticano, Padre Federico Lombardi, informó en un comunicado que el lunes 7 de abril fue cruelmente asesinado el sacerdote jesuita Frans Van der Lugt, quien a inicios de 2014 se negó a abandonar Siria durante la evacuación de civiles del país.

Recogiendo el testimonio de los religiosos locales, el P. Federico Lombardi indicó que “dos hombres armados lo golpearon y luego lo mataron con dos disparos de bala en la cabeza”.

El sacerdote jesuita, natural de Holanda, residía en una de las zonas más afectadas por la violencia en Siria.
