Christ indeed from death is risen!!!
Divine Mercy Novena, Day 3
Dear Family of Mary!
Let’s pray together this beautiful sequence, rejoicing in the Resurrection of our Lord, Jesus Christ!!
Sequence (Victimae paschali laudes)
Christians, to the Paschal Victim
Offer your thankful praises!
A Lamb the sheep redeems;
Christ, who only is sinless,
Reconciles sinners to the Father.
Death and life have contended
in that combat stupendous:
The Prince of life, who died, reigns immortal.
Speak, Mary, declaring
What you saw, wayfaring.
“The tomb of Christ, who is living,
The glory of Jesus’ resurrection;
bright angels attesting,
The shroud and napkin resting.
Yes, Christ my hope is arisen;
To Galilee he goes before you.”
Christ indeed from death is risen, our new life obtaining.
Have mercy, victor King, ever reigning!
This is Easter Sunday! Though we have been walking through a dark time, the Resurrection is a force that cannot be stopped! No pestilence can keep us from the joy of our Redeemer!! Our Lady has told us so. She called us to live in trust. Her Son has conquered:
“Dear children! Also today I call you to have more trust in me and my Son. He has conquered by His death and resurrection and, through me, calls you to be a part of His joy. You do not see God, little children, but if you pray you will feel His nearness. I am with you and intercede before God for each of you. Thank you for having responded to my call.” (April 25, 2006)
We do not see God, but today we want to feel His nearness. We want to live in the deep awareness of the Redemption of Christ. We want to be part of His Joy!!
Come, Lord Jesus, and enter the room of my Heart, even if the door is locked. Even though I may be in locked down, alone, Jesus will come. He can walk through walls!! Come, Lord Jesus, come in and be with me.
Today we pray for all Devout and Faithful Souls. May these souls stay firm and intercede for this poor world, so much in need of mercy!
Divine Mercy Novena – Day Three
Today bring to Me ALL DEVOUT AND FAITHFUL SOULS and immerse then in the ocean of My mercy. The souls brought Me consolation on the Way of the Cross. They were that drop of consolation in the midst of an ocean of bitterness.
Most Merciful Jesus, from the treasury of Your mercy, You impart Your graces in great abundance to each and all. Receive us into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart and never let us escape from It. We beg this grace of You by that most wonderous love for the heavenly Father with which Your Heart burns so fiercely.
Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon faithful souls, as upon the inheritance of Your Son. For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, grant them Your blessing and surround them with Your constant protection. Thus may they never fail in love or lose the treasure of the holy faith, but rather, with all the hosts of Angels and Saints, may they glorify Your boundless mercy for endless ages. Amen.
