Friends of the Rosary,

Today, Monday in the Octave of Easter, we read (Mt 28:8-15) the episode of the first apparition of the crucified and risen Jesus to Mary Magdalene and the other Mary.

The two women embraced his feet and did him homage. Our Lord called them by their name and encouraged them not to be afraid.

As long as we trust in Jesus, we shouldn’t be afraid. The Resurrection of Jesus from the dead showed that God is up to something greater than we had imagined.

As Bishop Barron wrote yesterday, “We can begin to see this world as a place of gestation toward something higher, more permanent, more splendid.”

The path of salvation has been opened to everyone. In light of the Resurrection, we see that running away from the Father doesn’t make any sense.

The stunning lesson of the Resurrection is that the smart way to conduct our lives is based on running into the arms of the Son.

Jesus is Risen! Is risen indeed!

Ave Maria!
Jesus, I Trust In You!

To Jesus through Mary!

Here am I, Lord; I come to do your will!
