Easter Monday

"Every Christian relives the experience of Mary Magdalene. It involves an encounter which changes our lives: the encounter with a unique Man who lets us experience all God’s goodness and truth, who frees us from evil not in a superficial and fleeting way, but sets us free radically, heals us completely and restores our dignity. This is why Mary Magdalene calls Jesus “my hope”: he was the one who allowed her to be reborn, who gave her a new future, a life of goodness and freedom from evil. “Christ my hope” means that all my yearnings for goodness find in him a real possibility of fulfilment: with him I can hope for a life that is good, full and eternal, for God himself has drawn near to us, even sharing our humanity." - from Pope Benedict XVI - Easter Morning Message

To The End

“He had loved his own in this world, and would show his love for them to the end.” John 13:1 Jesus showed the depth of his love to the end.   We are in the middle of the Triduum. Good Friday has passed and now we await the Resurrection.   We wait in the midst of the restlessness, the longing of our hearts.   To the end:   Jesus poured out everything on the Cross.   He endured every moment of the Passion for love of you.   Did you stop to reflect on that yesterday?   Today?   He loved you and thought of YOU, to the end.   As you gaze upon the Cross, the price of our salvation, remember that it was out of depth of love for you that Jesus chose to do the Father’s Will.   How far are you willing to go for Love?   How deep is your love for Love?   Be not afraid to follow the One who loves you so much.   Be not afraid to open your heart to be filled with this Love.   Be not afraid to die for love of Love.
