New life in Christ!

One of the most beautifully worded  messages I have received this Easter comes from Anto in Italy, and I would like to share it with you all.

I have just witnessed in my parish  the Baptism and Confirmation of 33 elects and the acceptance of three candidates into the Catholic Church. On this night, I know that all over the world, thousands will embrace Jesus as Lord and Saviour. May God be praised now and forever! May His love continue to bring thousands more to come and accept Him as Lord and Master! Praise God for all who have prayed and continue to pray for the conversion of sinners. I know for sure that good people have prayed for my conversion. Praise God!

A joyful, holy and blessed Easter to one and all!

“Do not be afraid. You are looking for Jesus who was crucified. He has risen, as He has said …”

ALLELUIA! CHRIST HAS RISEN!
HAPPY EASTER!

When all seems lost, when the dark night of life seems ever before, when the mind becomes increasingly dull,  thinking that “now there is nothing more to do!”, and when the heart is crushed by the  heavy stone of pain and cannot find the strength to love. . . Take heart!

Here a little light turns on . . . a tremulous light. . .then a bright light breaks the darkness and announces a new start. 

A gaze rests gently on your face and hands wipe away  your tears of pain: the stone rolls away,  leaving room for hope. 

Here is the great mystery of Easter!

“Do not be afraid. You are looking for Jesus who was crucified. He has risen, as He has said …”

ALLELUIA! CHRIST HAS RISEN!
HAPPY EASTER!

On this Holy night the Church invites us to be witnesses to the light of the Risen One, to believe that anyone living in Him should not pronounce the word “now”, but constantly rely on the word “still”: there is still another possibility, there is still hope!

There is life, because Christ has won, and we with Him, death. 

 “Fear not! Go, announce unto my brethren to go into Galilee and there they will see me “

 Jesus invites us to fear not because he is alive. He calls us not to cry, not to withdraw in sadness, nor to live in memories, but to go to Galilee, where we  will see him. 

 Galilee, which was the land of the Ministry of Jesus ‘ life, is now referred to as a symbol of the normal, ordinary life, in which all of us are immersed and which we are called as witnesses of the risen Christ, to illuminate the light of faith. 

This is as if to say that the resurrected must recognize extraordinary things not as sensational, but especially in those of every day.

We are therefore called to announce the risen Lord in our Galilee, without fear, but with courage, with joy, with passion, for it is  there and not in other places He awaits us.    Happy Easter!   

“Do not be afraid. You are looking for Jesus who was crucified. He has risen, as He has said …”

ALLELUIA! CHRIST HAS RISEN!
HAPPY EASTER!
