In God, love is always unitive and creative. It is always faithful, free, total, and fruitful.
Each day within the Octave of Easter is ranked as a solemnity, the highest liturgical designation on the Church calendar. That means for the next eight days, right up to Divine Mercy Sunday, we’ll be celebrating as if each day is Easter Sunday!
Jesus’ Resurrection is not an event to be recorded in a history book. It is not something to be studied through the scientific method. The Resurrection of Jesus is a relational encounter that we have in faith.
As Holy Week and the Sacred Triduum fast approach, we cannot relax our efforts to rend our hearts. Ultimately, it is God who will work the grace of His Death and Resurrection in us, breaking our hearts of stone in order to give us hearts that live (cf. Ezekiel 36:26).
Do not wait to take advantage of the opportunity to know God’s mercy as soon as possible, to live in His light, and to experience His joy right now!
Learning such a love does not necessarily come easily. Indeed, the acquisition of virtue is often—if not always—a painful process.
More than daily monotony, each moment is laced with the potential to change the world by changing those whom we encounter.
The Stations of the Cross are an excellent way of not only retelling the story of Jesus’ Passion but also entering into dialogue with the One who gave Himself up for our sake.
Put some lift in your Lent by solving some riddles that point to some excellent examples of “saintly” devotion.
Whatever you offer to God this Lent, may you present it with all the awkward generosity, sincere devotion and loving desire of a child.
