On the Saving death and Resurrection of Christ
Christ was rejected by the Priests, Scribes and Elders and handed over to the Romans who mocked, scourged and crucified him. Looking through the lens of the Passover it was necessary that Christ should suffer and die as ransom to free men from the slavery of sin. He descended into Hell and was resurrected from the dead on the third day after his death. He then appeared bodily to his Mother, the apostles and many others. After 40 days Christ ascended into Heaven to be seated at the right hand of the Father, opening for us the way to new life. This is the crux of our faith.

Please pray for our inquirers Suzanne McDaniel, Wanda Jones, Sadie McCann, Caleb Clark and Christ McCann. If you know anyone interested in RCIA contact the parish office or wollie.wolcott@stfrancismadison.org.
