Bishop Brennan Celebrates First Easter Vigil as Bishop of Brooklyn
April 17, 2022 Diocese Brooklyn
“We are announcing the greatest news of all time. Jesus Christ is Risen,” proclaimed the Most Reverend Robert Brennan, who celebrated the Great Easter Vigil tonight, his first as Bishop of Brooklyn, at the Co-Cathedral of St. Joseph, located at 856 Pacific Street, in the Prospect Heights section of Brooklyn.
“He is Risen from the dead, He lives. He didn’t just rise to make an appearance 2000 years ago, He lives. He lives now forever and we will be with Him one day. We will die with Him, we die with Him in baptism, but by dying with Him in baptism we know that we will rise with Him. This is the greatest news ever and today we celebrate it with tremendous joy,” preached Bishop Brennan.
The Easter Vigil begins in the dark outside the Church. That is where the Paschal candle is lit and that light is shared with all inside the church, which dramatically lights up to symbolize the Risen Lord.
"We come because we need to be reminded every once in a while, and we go forth from here ready to announce, to bring the news to the world by the way we live our lives with joy, with hope and with confidence, because Jesus is Risen, because our lives have meaning and direction, because we are meant to live forever," added Bishop Brennan.
Bishop Brennan baptized five new Catholics, who now begin their new life in the Church. Six people were also confirmed during the Easter Vigil.
