(LifeSiteNews) — The last couple of years might have seemed like a Lent for all of us. We’ve been struggling with lockdowns and COVID, not only the effects of the disease itself, but also of the injections and the horrific toll of being forced to receive these abortion-tainted jabs… and at the same time being restricted in travel, and for a long time being restricted even in the celebration of religious services. It’s been an unbelievable time.

But you know what? We are blessed in that all things work for good for those who love Him, and we know that that is the case, even with these horrific things we’ve been suffering.

You know, there’s a saying that many pastors have used, have often said in times of great struggle and hardship. They’ve said, “It’s Good Friday now, but Easter’s a-coming.” As we approach the glorious celebration of the resurrection of the Lord, of Easter, let’s give thanks, even amidst our sufferings. I know so many of you have been undergoing great trials and sufferings, as have we here at LifeSiteNews.

I want to thank you so much for your prayers, for your sacrifices, for your contributions to keep this news service going during all of this very, very difficult time.

“Good Friday is upon us, but Easter is a-coming.” Happy Easter, everyone, from all of us here at LifeSiteNews.
