The Silence of Holy Saturday
“When all seems dark and grim and the only thing left to do is wait, be still. Tomorrow there is hope.”
“There is hope even in the most dire of circumstances. There is darkness – embrace it and be still. There is sorrow. Weep, but pray. Cradle your broken-heartedness as you would a sick and crying child, tenderly and patiently. Honor your Holy Saturday, your living in-between cross and resurrection. Look deeply into its parallelism in today’s great vigil of a lockdown. It is in the course of the lockdown that your faith and obedience will be tried and trained. Wait. Waiting is in the grand scheme of things – all part of God’s plan. Lean on Him. For only when you do can His all-sufficiency strengthen you in your weakest and His light shine through in your darkest. Only when you abide in Him can you come alive in the sunrise of His glory.” -GTeodoro
Have a Blessed and Meaningful Holy Week!
The Chaplet of The Divine Mercy Novena
Today bring to Me THE SOULS OF PRIESTS AND RELIGIOUS, and immerse them in My unfathomable mercy. It was they who gave Me strength to endure My bitter Passion. Through them as through channels My mercy flows out upon mankind.
Most Merciful Jesus, from whom comes all that is good, increase Your grace in men and women consecrated to Your service,* that they may perform worthy works of mercy; and that all who see them may glorify the Father of Mercy who is in heaven. Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon the company of chosen ones in Your vineyard—upon the souls of priests and religious; and endow them with the strength of Your blessing. For the love of the Heart of Your Son in which they are enfolded, impart to them Your power and light, that they may be able to guide others in the way of salvation and with one voice sing praise to Your boundless mercy for ages without end. Amen.
