Transformation into Something Greater

Transformation into Something Greater

“Do not be frightened. He has been raised up, exactly as he promised.”

Silicon dioxide — aka sand.

Purify it, remove any traces of iron, and bleach it. Add limestone and sodium carbonate.  Heat it at 1700 degrees, until the sand melts. The result: glass.

Glass that can inspire as part of a cathedral’s brilliant stained glass window, or glass that can illuminate when blown into the form of an incandescent bulb, or glass so beautiful it takes your breath away in the form of magnifi­cent crystals.

But it starts with sand — sand that has now ceased to be sand and has instead given over its properties to create something even greater.

Tonight (Today), the Church celebrates the Resurrection of Jesus from the dead and His appearance to the women at the tomb. The resurrection of Jesus, which happened in the early hours of Sunday morning, is a fact which all the evangelists state clearly and unequivocally. Continue reading

We Wish You A Blessed & Happy Easter

Easter 2017ProLifeCorner.com-  Easter 2017-  Jesus’ Resurrection Is Real! “If there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised. And if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith “1 Corinthian 15:13-14.   The same way that the world has secularized and commercialized our Christmas celebration, so it is with the Christian proclamation of the risen Jesus. The world has upstaged this solemn, holy and glorious celebration with the end of college basketball, the beginning of professional baseball, or by the Easter bunny, marshmallow chicks, or chocolate rabbits.

What the world fails to realize, ” Claiming to be wise, they became fools.-Rm. 1:22, is that without the resurrection, we are trapped in sin, doomed in death, and ” the most pitiable of men” and women. Because Jesus is risen, our faith is the ultimate, full, true, and precious meaning of life. Because of the resurrection, Jesus conquered sin, death, Satan, hell, and damnation. We are the most blessed of men and women.

We were buried with Him by Baptism into death, so that as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life.”  Rom. 6.4

Rejoice dear brothers and sisters, we have been bought with the precious Blood of the sinless Lamb. What a privilege to be called sons and daughters of God our Father, and brothers and sisters of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, Yeah!!!

We wish you a Blessed & Happy Easter!!!

The Easter Triduum 2017

The Easter Triduum 2017

ProLifeCorner-  Frank J. Munda- Every year during Lent for the past several years I try to listen to Fr. John Corapi’s presentation of The Easter Triduum. It helps me to think more of our Lord’s passion starting on Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and on to Holy Saturday, leading into His glorious resurrection on Easter Sunday.

There are many good and holy pastors who have given great homilies on this subject. I am especially partial to Fr. Corapi’s talk. As you do your meditations this Lent, please pray for Father Corapi and all ministers who are serving our Lord by ministering to us through their preaching’s.

Also, please pray for our persecuted brothers and sisters all throughout the world who cannot worship our Lord without fear of being attacked. May our Lord deliver them from these days of sorrow and bring peace, joy, and love back into their lives. Continue reading
