Let me start by saying if you were at Holy Mass this morning, you would have heard in the Gospel the mission that the Risen Lord. In the reading set down from the Acts of the Apostles, you would have heard the beginning of St Peter’s profound proclamation of the Resurrection of Jesus – issued on the day of Pentecost. If our faith has been renewed during the Paschal Triduum, then naturally it leads to this mission to tell others of the salvation won by Jesus Christ. God Bless!
Today on April 7th we join with Our Lady watching in prayer and waiting for the fulfillment of the promise of the Resurrection of Jesus. Even though she believed in this promise with all her heart, her faith was tested and proved to be worth far more than gold. It is because of her sufferings on the day after the Crucifixion that Saturdays. God Bless!
Today, on April 6th, (Good Friday) the novena of Divine Mercy begins. The Lord Jesus promised us through St Faustina that through the novena of Chaplets of Divine Mercy He would grant souls whatsoever graces they ask. By praying this Novena, together with the prayer intentions of each day, we come to understand the concerns closest to the Sacred Heart of Jesus – and we live out these holy days in a much deeper way.God Bless!
