Reflections of Faith
Read and be inspired by a reflection based on today's Gospel made by members of the Verbum Dei Family in Manila.
April 12, 2020- Easter Sunday
Gospel: Matthew 28:1-10
“....for He has been raised.....”
Jesus lives! The Resurrection is the focal point of our Catholic faith. He triumphed over death, and suffering; giving us hope in our quest to overcome too our suffering here on earth.
He is alive! Our hearts rejoice, sharing in this same triumph, over our own emptiness. We now have a purpose, our lives have been given the Light, and the Path.
We are one with Mama Mary in rejoicing, together with the Apostles. Let us now be the Light, the Path, and the Joy for others. It is the joy that emanates from our inner most being, able to face trials again and again, because we know we can overcome with Christ in our hearts.
During this crisis enveloping the world, let us be more resolute in our devotion to Jesus and Mary, and promise never to be separated from them. Amen.
