HE IS RISEN HE IS NOT  HERE!
Woman, why are you weeping?” She said to them, “They have taken my Lord, and I don’t know where they laid him.” 14When she had said this, she turned around and saw Jesus  there but did not know it was Jesus….“ Rabbouni”!
Mary rested her teary eyes on her beloved Teacher.  

The resurrection of Jesus means that he rose to new life. He appeared to his friends as flesh but in a glorified body - that means that he is no longer limited to the conditions of ordinary life. The risen Christ is present everywhere at the same time, all the time, to this day and beyond.
Just as Mary of Magdala gave witness to the Apostles, that she had seen the Lord through her glorious tears, we too are given the same grace to witness that Jesus is truly risen!  We are to witness that through his resurrection Christ has erased all barriers in our human relationships. “There is neither Jew nor Greek; there is neither slave nor free person; there is not male or female; you are all one in Christ Jesus.”(Gal. 3:28.)  This is a great challenge  and a call to us since  we come from different ethnic communities.  Can we erase the barriers that exist among us? YES WE CAN! Nothing is impossible if we truly believe in the risen Christ!  May you have a joyous Easter season, now and every Sunday of your life!

Celebrating Mary at la Salette… 

Glorious Mysteries  - Glorious Tears !!!   The children testified that her  tears that fell on the crucifix sparkled all around her. The crown above her head comes from the tears that fell on the crucifix.   They are the tears that call us  to conversion and reconciliation with her Son. They are the tears that overcome the power of sin in our lives!  They are glorious tears, because the  children, to whom she entrusted to make her message known to all her people, accomplished  it. They are glorious tears because her message continues to be announced,known and accepted in many parts of the world by men and women who have heard it and share it.
They are the glorious tears  of a loving Mother who wants her people to rejoice in the joy of being with her and with God be in heaven.  
Reflection:  How are Mary’s glorious tears touching you?
