Year C- Easter Sunday
1 Early on the first day of the week, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene came to the tomb and saw that the stone had been removed from the tomb.
Inspiration of the Holy Spirit - From the Sacred Heart of JesusMy Apostles were totally overwhelmed by my death; they were desolated, discouraged and very confused. Their faith was weakened.
Mary Magdalene was the sinful woman who repented and sinned no more, She accompanied my mother and John my dearest disciple all the way to Calvary. She was the first disciple rewarded with the knowledge about my Resurrection.
When Peter and John entered the tomb, John was the first one to remember my words and to believe that I would rise from the dead.
There are great spiritual rewards prepared for all those who repent and sin no more. When they accompany me to Calvary through their meditations; they accompany my mother and me in those painful moments when I surrendered my life to the Father for the Salvation of all mankind. They look at the one they have pierced for the forgiveness of sins. They join me in my sacrifice and take part in my work of redemption, therefore becoming co-redeemers, praying with me to the Father: “Father forgive them, they know not what they do.”
The Holy Mass is the summit of all Christian devotions, the most powerful prayer, because it is the re-enactment of my Passion and death. I truly become flesh and blood in the sacramental altar. Unless you eat of my flesh and drink of my blood, there is not life in you. If you believe in me, if you give credit to my words, I will raise you up on the last day.
My resurrection is my great victory over Satan, Sin and Death. The day when Light overcame darkness, Grace overcame sin and Life overcame death. Divine Mercy opened its gates to the world to facilitate the Salvation of all those who believe in me; the Son of the Living God, the Saviour of the world.
On the day of the Resurrection I undid the curse given in Paradise, “You are dust, and to dust you will return”.
I am the resurrection and the Life. If you believe in me, even though you will die, you will live forever.
