The 2022 Christmas message from Bishop James. P Powers, Bishop of the Diocese of Superior.
Bishop James P. Powers comments regarding the Supreme Court overturning of Roe V. Wade.
My sisters and brothers, once again the GOOD NEWS of the empty tomb resounds in our hearts and minds. HE IS RISEN – THE STONE HAS BEEN REMOVED – THE TOMB IS EMPTY. Jesus’ death on the cross has been transformed into the glory of the resurrection and the hope, joy, and peace of our Lord’s victory over sin and death. By the power of God’s love for us, we have been saved.
As I begin writing this letter on the Feast of Mary, Mother of the Church, I pray that Mary may intercede on behalf of all of us and that we might more fully open our hearts and minds to the gifts and power of the Holy Spirit given to us anew on the Feast of Pentecost. Once again during this time of COVID, we are reminded of the infinite love of our God.
As we find ourselves about halfway through our Lenten journey, my prayer for each of you is that it truly is one of prayer and discipline, drawing you ever closer to the loving, merciful embrace of our Lord and Savior.
