Easter Joy

Jesus Christ is Risen, Alleluja!

      Easter Joy

Jesus came to earth,
To show us how to live,
How to put others first,
How to love and how to give.

Then He set about His work,
That God sent Him to do;
He took our punishment on Himself;
He made us clean and new.

He could have saved Himself,
Calling angels from above,
But He chose to pay our price for sin;
He paid it out of love.

 Our Lord died on Good Friday,
  But the cross did not destroy
  His resurrection on Easter morn
  That fills our hearts with joy.

  Now we know our earthly death,
  Like His, is just a rest.
  We’ll be forever with Him
  In heaven, where life is best.

 So we live our lives for Jesus,
 Think of Him in all we do.
 Thank you Saviour; Thank you Lord.
 Help us love like you!

Prayer for Christian Unity

PRAYER FOR CHRISTIAN UNITY

God of compassion,
you have loved and forgiven us in Christ,
and sought to reconcile the entire human race
in that redeeming love.
Look with favour upon us,
who work and pray
for the unity of divided Christian communities.
Grant us the experience of being brothers and sisters in your love.
We ask this through Our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God for ever and ever. Amen.

O Gloriosa Domina

                                  Jesus, Son of Mary www.thecalltofatima.com             O GLORIOSA DOMINA

                                       Hail most high, most humble one!

                                       Above the world; below thy Son,

                                       Whose blush the moon beauteously mars

                                       And stains the timorous light of stars.

                                       He that made all things, had not done,

                                       Till He had made Himself thy son.

                                       The whole world’s Host would be thy guest

                                       And board Himself at thy rich breast.

                                       O boundless hospitality!

                                       The Feast of all things feeds on thee.

                                       Let hearts and lips speak loud and say

                                       Hail door of life and source of day!

                                       The door was shut, the fountain sealed;

                                       Yet light was seen and life revealed.

                                       The door was shut, yet let in day,

                                       The fountain sealed, yet life found way.

                                       Glory to Thee, great virgin’s Son,

                                       In bosom of thy Father’s bliss.

                                       The same to Thee, sweet Spirit be done.

                                       As ever shall be, was and is.

                                                                         (Richard Crashaw 1612-1649)

Question of the Day: “Where are you going to spend Eternity?”

The Answer is yours …

Discover the Truth

“The  culture  in which we live is very secularized  and pretends to carry on as if God did not exist; it also teaches us that the truth is whatever I fashion it to be and what’s good is whatever pleases me.  Of course, this is false. As Pope Benedict XVI said in his address to the Roman Curia this past year, such ideas come from a false notion of freedom, which leaves people enslaved to various material realities and, as a result, profoundly unhappy.

What we need to discover is the Truth which is revealed in such a striking way in the life of Christ, whose total obedience to the will of the Father, total obedience to the way that God the Father shows us,both in Ten Commandments and in the Beatitudes, is the way of pure and selfless love, is the only way to our happiness.

If  you look in the Gospels for that virtue which most characterizes the love of Christ for the Father and for all mankind for whom He poured out His life, it is obedience- “I have come not to do my will but the will of Him who sent me.”-Christ was obedient even to death on the Cross.

“Pray the Rosary every day!” asked Our Lady in Fatima

Sister Lucia was asked by Our Lady of Fatima to pray the Rosary every day![During the very first apparition, on 13th May, 1917, Our Lady asked: “Pray the Rosary every day!” , and this request was to be repeated by her every month until October.

So, calling to mind the insistence with which God, by means of the Fatima Message, recommends the prayer of the Rosary, and also all that the Church’s Magisterium has said about it over the years, we can conclude that the Rosary is a form of vocal prayer which, in general, suits all of us, for which we should have the highest regard, and which we should make the greatest effort never to abandon…

I assure you that the Rosary is a biblical prayer and that it is part of the sacred Liturgy

The saying of the Rosary is the form of prayer which has been most recommended by all the Popes who served the Church in recent centuries.

His Holiness John Paul II expressed his intimate feelings, and his way of living the prayer of the Rosary in these words of 29th October, 1978: “A prayer marvellous in its simplicity and in its depth! In this prayer, we repeat over and over again the words which the Virgin Mary heard from the Archangel and from her cousin Elizabeth. The whole Church joins in these words. (…) At the same time our heart can include in these decades of the Rosary all the events which go to make up the life of the individual, the family, the nation, the Church, and the whole of humanity. Thus the simple prayer of the Rosary marks the rhythm of human life.(…) A prayer which is so simple and so rich! I cordially exhort all to pray it”. ]

This fragment is taken from the book “Calls from the Message of Fatima” written by Sister Lucia, page 270
