Christ is Risen! He is Risen indeed, Alleluia, Alleluia!
Just wanted to let you all know you were all remembered in my prayers over the weekend at the daily Mass I attend online and my special candle was lit on Sunday for you all and your intentions and the needs of our world, nation and locality.
We are now in the Third Week of Easter.
The Gospel Reading of the Week is: Luke 24:13-35.
The journey to Emmaus; “And the disciples told what had happened on the road, and how He (Jesus) had been made known to them in the breaking of the bread.” Lk 24:35
Once again today I will be keeping a candle burning for your intentions and will remember you all at Mass today.
Here is another Eastertide tip for the 3rd Week!
Wear more white, yellow or gold coloured clothes if you can, they are the colours of the Season!
Traditionally, the following greetings are used throughout Eastertide:
‘Alleluia!’ (Praise the Lord) and
‘Christ is Risen, He is Risen indeed, Alleluia, Alleluia!
Our prayers today:
Come, Holy Spirit!
God of power and mercy,
Send Your Holy Spirit to live in our hearts
and make us Temples of His glory.
We ask this through Our Lord, Jesus Christ. Amen.
Our Lady of Lourdes, Patron of our Archdiocese and our MAC, Health of the Sick and Comforter of the Afflicted, Pray for us. Amen.
Our Lady of Mount Carmel, Pray for us. Amen.
St Thomas More, Pray for us. Amen.
St Peter, Pray for us. Amen.
St Bede the Venerable, Pray for us, Amen.
St Augustine of Canterbury, Pray for us. Amen.
St Luke, Beloved Physician (Doctor) and companion of St Paul the Apostle, Patron of Doctors and Healthcare professionals, Pray for us. Amen.
St Jude Thaddeus, Patron of impossible or difficult circumstances, Pray for us. Amen.
St Raphael, Archangel, God’s healing Angel, Pray for us. Amen.
Our scripture reading today comes from the Acts of the Apostles. Traditionally, during Eastertide, we listen to and read scriptures from the Book of Acts and readings primarily taken from the New Testament as the first reading every day at Mass. The Book of Acts unfolds to us the activities of the early Church and the very beginnings of Christianity. May it over these days help to encourage us on our own journey of faith.
“The word of God continued to spread; the number of the disciples increased greatly in Jerusalem, and a great many of the priests became obedient to the faith.” Acts 6:7
Blessings to you all on this day.
