Do Not Be Afraid…

For He is Risen!–Mt. 28:5

Praise the Lord for He is Risen!

Truly our Lord makes all things new!  He has conquered death and brought us into Light!

“Alleluia! Christ is truly risen! We can make absolutely no qualification of this fact whatever. Christ has really, truly, and substantially risen, Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity, from the dead. The whole Christ has risen indeed for the completion of the work of our redemption.”~St. Thomas Aquinas 

“And he departed from our sight that we might return to our heart, and there find Him. For He departed, and behold, He is here.”
~St. Augustine

“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.”~St. John Chrysostom

 Yesterday I was crucified with Him; today I am glorified with Him; yesterday I died with Him; today I am quickened with Him; yesterday I was buried with Him; today I rise with Him. But let us offer to Him Who suffered and rose again for us— you will think perhaps that I am going to say gold, or silver, or woven work or transparent and costly stones, the mere passing material of earth, that remains here below, and is for the most part always possessed by bad men, slaves of the world and of the Prince of the world. Let us offer ourselves, the possession most precious to God, and most fitting; let us give back to the Image what is made after the Image. Let us recognize our Dignity; let us honor our Archetype; let us know the power of the Mystery, and for what Christ died.”~St. Gregory the Theologian 

From our family to yours:

May you have a happy and blessed Easter!  May God bless you and your family and may the Light of His Love shine upon you!
