Easter Sunday

Dear Family of Mary!

Alleluia! He is Risen!!
 
This is the day of joy! Jesus has conquered death and taken away all our sins. He has reunited us with the Father and made the way for us to live with Him forever in Heaven. We are saved by His Blood, healed by His wounds, and made whole by His stripes. He is our Redeemer!
Our Lady once said to us: "Dear children! Also today I call you to have more trust in me and my Son. He has conquered by His death and resurrection and, through me, calls you to be a part of His joy. You do not see God, little children, but if you pray you will feel His nearness. I am with you and intercede before God for each of you. Thank you for having responded to my call." (April 25, 2006)
 
We do not see God, but today we want to feel His nearness. We want to live in the deep awareness of the Redemption of Christ. We want to be part of His Joy!! Come, Lord Jesus, and enter the room of our Heart, even if the door is locked. Come in and be with us.

St. Faustina experienced the coming of Jesus at Easter Mass on 1938. She described it this way:

Easter [April 17, 1938]. During Mass, I thanked the Lord Jesus for having deigned to redeem us and for having given us that greatest of all gifts; namely, His love in Holy Communion; that is, His very own Self. At that moment, I was drawn into the bosom of the Most Holy Trinity, and I was immersed in the love of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. These moments are hard to describe. (Diary 1670)
 
May we all be drawn into the bosom of the Holy Trinity through Jesus, who gives Himself to us in the Holy Eucharist this day!!
 
Today is Day Three of the Divine Mercy Novena, so let us begin with this message from Our Lady:

Divine Mercy Novena - Day Three

Today bring to Me ALL DEVOUT AND FAITHFUL SOULS, and immerse then in the ocean of My mercy. The souls brought Me consolation on the Way of the Cross. They were that drop of consolation in the midst of an ocean of bitterness. 

Most Merciful Jesus, from the treasury of Your mercy, You impart Your graces in great abundance to each and all. Receive us into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart and never let us escape from It. We beg this grace of You by that most wondrous love for the heavenly Father with which Your Heart burns so fiercely.

Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon faithful souls, as upon the inheritance of Your Son. For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, grant them Your blessing and surround them with Your constant protection. Thus may they never fail in love or lose the treasure of the holy faith, but rather, with all the hosts of Angels and Saints, may they glorify Your boundless mercy for endless ages. Amen.
