Mother Magdalene reminds us each year that while Lent lasts for 40 days,
the blessings of Easter tide lasts for 50 ! ---from Easter to Pentecost.
So even though Easter Sunday was three weeks ago, and the stores have put away their Easter decorations,
Christians continue to benefit from the special blessings of this holy season.
God wants to rain down His Blessings & Mercies upon us!
All kinds of blessings!
Perhaps He wants to help restore peace among your family members.
Maybe He wants to help you battle a particular vice that you keep falling prey to.
Perhaps He wants to make Scripture come alive for you,
Or make a Holy Hour of Adoration seem like an instant.
Maybe He wants to resolve a difficult situation with your co-worker,
or with your spouse
Maybe He wants to draw your children back to the Faith.
Maybe He wants to deepen yours.
Maybe He wants to do all of the above!
Ask God to help you to be open to all the blessings and mercies
that He has put aside just for you.
Bow your head. Open your heart!
Jesus, We trust in You!
