We are now in the beautiful, grace-filled Easter Season.
Easter did not end on Sunday, April 21, it BEGAN!
Fr. John Mary likes to remind us that Lent lasts for 40 days,
but the Easter Season lasts for 50 --
ten more days of graces than there were of penance.
And this Season includes
the powerful Sunday of His Divine Mercy.
God is so generous!
He wants to shower us with the graces of this Easter Season,
but we need to be open to the graces and blessings.
Mother Magdalene often gives us the visual of opening our raised hands and ASKING God to shower His graces upon us... receiving them with the gratitude that you would
0f a gentle Spring rain after a long dry spell.
So each day of this Easter Season
( Easter Sunday to Pentecost Sunday)
take some time to entreat God for the particular graces
that He wants to bestow upon YOU.
And then thank Him for His love and generosity.
JESUS, HAS RISEN!
TRULY HE HAS RISEN!
JESUS, WE TRUST IN YOU.
