This is the day the Lord has made; let us be glad and rejoice in it.
Today begins Holocaust Remembrance Week 2013, established by Congress, and lasting until April 14. The theme of this year’s observance:
Holocaust Remembrance Day, April 8, marks the anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising during the Nazi occupation of Poland in April-May 1943. A total of six million Jews lost their lives in the Holocaust during World War II.
On this day of Blessing and Remembrance we pray for Norbertines in Holland and Jews everywhere the words of today’s Psalm, “This is the day the Lord has made; let us be glad and rejoice in it.”
