Friends of the Rosary:

This Easter we enjoy, through the Resurrection, the victory of truth over sin and darkness.

We will feel Jesus’ ocean of mercy over our lives — as long as we do our spiritual and sacramental homework.

However, if the get distracted we might easily fall. The soul must be watchful.

The mystic St Maria Faustina Kowalska very often heard from Jesus Himself these words: “Strengthen yourself for combat.” The way to arm ourselves is by prayer. “Every single grace comes to the soul through prayer,” wrote St. Faustina.

We fall on sin and we rise. And “in whatever state the soul may be, it ought to pray.”

We recite the mysteries of the passion and death of Jesus today.

Ave Maria!
Jesus, We Trust In You!
