Quote/s of the Day –11 April – The Month of the Resurrection” – Easter Tuesday
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!!!
For with thee is the fountain of life
and in Thy Light, we shall see light.
“Do we, then, regard it as a great
and marvellous thing,
for the Creator of all things,
to bring about the resurrection of those,
who have served Him with holiness,
in the assurance of a good faith?…
With this hope, then, let our souls be bound to Him
Who is faithful, to His promises
and upright in His judgements.
He, Who has commanded us not to lie
will much more not lie Himself.
For nothing is impossible to God
except lying (Jn 32:17; Lk 1:37; 6:18).”
(Letter to the Corinthians, #24-28)
St Pope Clement I (c 35-c 99)
Pope from about 90 to 99
“Consider that after a deluge of sorrow,
of torments and of anguish,
Our Saviour rose from the tomb by His own power;
He came forth by His own might.
Behold your dear Jesus, more triumphant than ever;
behold the sign of Jonah come to pass;
behold your dear Jesus alive!
With what gladness, was the company
of the Apostles ravished,
when they saw, once more among them,
the Holy Humanity of our Saviour,
raised to life again and glorious.
Consider how needful it was
that the kind Saviour
should go and visit His disciples.
Their faith, their hope, their charity were all wavering.
Our Saviour came to strengthen them.
“It is I, Myself, My dear disciples,
see My Hands and My Feet
and the Wound in My Side.”
