Tuesday of the Second Week of Easter
Believing Heavenly Things
“You guessed right. The strong sorrow that I send you is a longing for your heavenly home. Suffer for those who have no desire for their eternal homeland.” (Jesus)(April 20, 1962)
Today’s Readings: If I tell you about earthly things and you do not believe,
how will you believe if I tell you about heavenly things?
No one has gone up to heaven
except the one who has come down from heaven, the Son of Man.
And just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the desert,
so must the Son of Man be lifted up,
so that everyone who believes in him may have eternal life.” (John 3)
Prayer Meditation- Lord, Heaven can seem so far away. Few of us, when times are good really give much thought to Heaven, and the reality of living in union with You- the truth is we all want our Heaven here. Lord in these times of crisis, many of us may be seeking answers just like Nicodemus. It is during a crisis that we realize how tenuous earthly things really are. Yet there are so many who will struggle to find their eternal homeland as they are stuck in darkness and despair. They do not know that You are knocking at the door of their hearts (Revelations 3) Lord, we know that You have been lifted up to bring all to Yourself ,if we believe and repent, and give our lives to You. We who know this feel this longing more than ever and we can turn this time of sorrow into a time of offering for the salvation of souls and especially for the dying. Let us use this time of exile as a time of repentance, reparation and preparation because we are just pilgrims passing through to our eternal lives in You!
