REFLECTION – “Today, the Church continues to say:  “Stop. Jesus is Risen.”   And this is not a fantasy.   The Resurrection of Christ is not a celebration with many flowers.   This is beautiful but this is not it.   It is something more.   It is the mystery of the discarded stone which becomes the foundation of our existence.   Christ is Risen.   And with faith in the Risen Christ, we too, pebbles on this earth of pain, tragedy, acquire meaning amid so many calamities.   The sense to look beyond, the sense to say:  “Look, there is no wall; there is a horizon, there is life, there is joy, there is the cross with this ambivalence.  Look ahead, do not close within yourself.   You pebble, acquire meaning in life because you are a pebble near that rock, that stone which the evil of sin discarded”.   Brothers and sisters, this is what I wanted to say to you.   Go home today repeating in your hearts: “Christ is Risen”. … Pope Francis – Easter Sunday, 16 April 2017

PRAYER – Lord God, You bring us joy through the Easter mysteries.   Continue to be bountiful to Your people, lead us from darkness to the perfect freedom, by which the joy that gladdens our way on earth, will be fulfilled in heaven.   May the prayer of your angels and saints, with Mary the Mother of our Saviour and our Mother, grant us peace and strength.   We make our prayer through our Lord, Jesus Christ, with the Holy Spirit, God forever amen.
