In light of so much upheaval in the world in every generation, the peaceful victory of the Resurrection comes as the day that promises victory over all suffering. The sweet triumph of the Resurrection gives to all of us hope through the lesson of the Holy Cross:
In the Cross is our HOPE , it has become our great sign of hope, not despair! In this articulate sign of contradiction WE ARE GIVEN A SPIRITUAL LIFESTYLE THAT LEADS US IN DEEPENING FAITH AMID ANY TYPE OF ADVERSITY TO THE DIVINE SON WHO WAS POOR, TRANQUIL, AND DEEPLY EMBEDDED IN GOD FROM THE GROUND OF HIS BEING. WE ARE CALLED TO FOLLOW HIS GUIDE, AMID ANY DARKNESS WE SHALL KNOW HIM AS SOURCE OF LIGHT!
HE WAS GIVEN TO US AS A SOURCE OF LIFE FOR OUR FALTERING SPIRITS, WE ARE WELCOMED INTO HEAVEN TO ENJOY THE BEATIFIC VISION FOR ALL ETERNITY BY HIS SINGULAR SALVIFIC ACT OF CHARITY. CHRIST JESUS CAME TO FREE ALL HUMANITY AND BY HIS SAVING GRACE NOTHING WILL EVER TRULY FRIGHTEN OR WORRY US AGAIN, IN FAITH WE BELIEVE HE HAS SET US FREE.
Let our own hearts echo the glorious angelic chorus of Heaven’s Alleluia. Its melody echoes over the dark, silent, empty tomb: This is the day which the Lord hath made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. Peace to the redeemed of the Holy Cross! Alleluia!
From our Carmelite friends and our Mother Foundress on this wondrous day of Resurrection!
