Speaking of the Resurrection

“O Death, where is your sting?
O Hell, where is your victory?
Christ is risen and you are overthrown.
Christ is risen and the demons are fallen.
Christ is risen and the angels rejoice.
Christ is risen and life reigns.
Christ is risen and not one dead remains in the grave.
For Christ, being risen from the dead,
is become the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep.
To Him be glory and dominion unto ages of ages.”

St John Chrysostom (347-407) Father & Doctor of the Church, Easter Homilyo death where is your sting - st john chrysostom - easter thursday - 5 april 2018

The Lord’s triumph, on the day of the Resurrection, is final.
Where are the soldiers the rulers posted there?
Where are the seals that were fixed to the stone of the tomb?
Where are those who condemned the Master?
Where are those who crucified Jesus?
He is victorious and faced with His victory,
those poor wretches have all taken flight.
Be filled with hope:
Jesus Christ is always victorious.”

St Josemarie Escrivá (1902-1975), The Forge, 660the lord triumph on the day of the resurrection is final - st josemaria - easter thursday 5 april 2018

“Faith in the Resurrection of Jesus says that,
there is a future for every human being;
the cry for unending life,
which is a part of the person, is indeed answered.”

Pope Benedict XVI, Benedictus, 128faith in the resurrection of jesus - pope benedict - easter thursday - 5 april 2018

“The Gospel of Easter is very clear:
we need to go back there, to see Jesus risen
and to become witnesses of His Resurrection.
This is not to go back in time;
it is not a kind of nostalgia.
It is returning to our first love,
in order to receive the fire which Jesus has kindled in the world
and to bring that fire to all people, to the very ends of the earth.”

Pope Francis, Easter Vigil Homily, 2014POPE FRANCIS EASTER VIGIL

Passionate Catholic. Being Catholic is a way of life - a love affair "Religion must be like the air we breathe..."- St John Bosco Prayer is what the world needs combined with the example of our lives which testify to the Light of Christ. This site will mainly concentrate on Daily Prayers, Novenas and the Memorials and Feast Days of our friends in Heaven, the Saints who went before us and the great blessings the Church provides in our Catholic Monthly Devotions. "For the saints are sent to us by God as so many sermons. We do not use them, it is they who move us and lead us, to where we had not expected to go.” Charles Cardinal Journet (1891-1975) This site adheres to the Catholic Church and all her teachings.
