Luke 24:12 Peter got up and ran to the tomb; stooping and looking in, he saw the linen cloths by themselves; then he went home, amazed at what had happened.
“My beloved, can you even imagine such a moment? My servant, my friend Peter, traumatized by the horror of my death, now had to somehow accept this unimaginable reality—I had risen! You too are immersed in a world that gives birth to horror and terror at every moment. I come to give you great hope. Just as the resurrection was an unimaginable joy to the disciples, so too will the era of peace be to all who are now traumatized by the horrors all around. Be not afraid. I left the tomb empty. Then do not return to it to sit weeping in the dark. I have come to set the captives free and I will do it. The glory to come is unimaginable to you. Trust in me. Pray for sinners. Children, I am near, so near!”
O my Jesus, thank you for these words of hope! Our hearts are breaking over the sin and suffering in the world. Jesus we trust in you. We give you all souls in the Divine Will so that your mercy will act on them as it so longs to do. We immerse them in the ocean of your mercy. Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, we love you—save souls!
To all my dear friends, I pray that the glorious light of Easter will shine forever on you and yours. I treasure your presence, thank God for your faithfulness, and pray for you each day. I thank you for your prayers for me and mine as well.
He is risen indeed! Alleluia! Maranatha!
