Statement of Bishop Jaime Soto on the Easter Season

Dear Friends in Christ:


“For if we have grown into union with him through a death like his, we shall also be united with him in the resurrection.” (Rom. 6.5) These words from St. Paul’s letter to the Romans are a challenge and a consolation. In small ways as well as more significant ways, the COVID-19 Pandemic has brought the death of Christ closer to all of us. The sufferings and sacrifices of many during this Lenten and Easter Season have opened an avenue of grace by which we may grow in union with Christ “through a death like his.” The personal and painful journey across the dark, uncertain valley of the coronavirus has offered us many sacramental occasions to share in the death of Christ so that we might “also be united with him in the resurrection.”
