An Easter Prayer

Right now I’m in a different place, and though we seem apart, I’m closer than I ever was… I’m there inside your heart.

I’m with you when you greet each day, and while the sun shines bring, I’m there to share the sunsets, too.

I’m with you every night. I’m with you when the times are good, to share a laugh or two, and if a ear should start to fall… I’m still be there for you. And when that day arrives, that we no longer are apart, I’ll smile and hold you close to me…Forever in my heart

Blessings of the Easter Season, Mary Ann Gricar

     ROCKFORD DIOCESE


Vocation Corner

Palms are a Christian symbol of VICTORY, TRIUMPH, and JOY! So on this Palm Sunday we experience great joy just as the Jewish people did in welcoming Jesus as He rode into Jerusalem on a colt. But palms are also a Christian symbol for martyrs. Martyrs are those who have witnessed to Jesus and all He said and did, following Him all the way to the end, even if it meant death. The martyrs were also victorious, triumphant, and joyous, but it first meant faithfulness in suffering through the daily cross.

The lesson of Passion (Palm) Sunday is that we receive a palm today reminding us of the joyous victory of Jesus, but we also acknowledge that our vocation (calling in life) follows Jesus on the road of His Passion. God’s plan is best, and He helps us embrace it, but it always entails a cross before the victory. Hang in there, it will all be worth it!
