Today’s Consuming Fire
Meditation- – A Daily Dose of the Flame of Love Diary Served Up with Today’s
Monday in the Octave of Easter
Make public all that I tell you now: Make the sign of the Cross five times while thinking of My Sacred Wounds. (Jesus) (April 8, 1962)
Readings: Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went away quickly from the tomb,
fearful yet overjoyed,
and ran to announce the news to his disciples.
And behold, Jesus met them on their way and greeted them.
They approached, embraced his feet, and did him homage.
Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid.
Go tell my brothers to go to Galilee,
and there they will see me.” (Matthew 28)
Prayer Meditation- Lord, we see the Holy Women, and we can marvel at their faithfulness. Rewarded for their faith, they are fearful and overjoyed as they gaze at the empty tomb. And then there You are and You tell them not to be afraid but to go tell the Apostles what they have seen. Lord, even in hard times, we know that You are the Risen Lord who tells us not to be afraid. And you so want us to tell others about the hope that is in us (1 Peter 3:15). That You died for us so that if we repent and believe in our hearts, we can attain salvation, a free gift of Your Amazing Grace! (Romans 10:9). So, Lord, let us run like those faithful women to tell our brothers and sisters the good news of the Gospel- whether it be by word or by our loving actions toward others because He is Risen and He Lives!
