Easter is colorful as it should be; here see an Easter challenge Weekly Prompts Colour Challenge
Upon waking this Holy Saturday, I began to meditate on what was going on this day with Our Lord Jesus Christ—knowing that the Blessed Sacrament was no longer present in the Church Tabernacle. By this action, it represented Jesus was in the tomb. The Creed we say indicates that Jesus “suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried; He descended into hell!” Hell, in this sense, a place where the Beatific Vision was absent, a waiting place for those who awaited the gates of Heaven to open, that they will march with Jesus Christ through those gates with Jesus leading them.
Think: How happy they must have been, finally, Jesus fulfilled the reason for His becoming our God-Man; to die that God the Father agreed to be appeased by the Sacrifice of His Son, the Second Person of the Trinity.
“It is finished.”
Yes, the souls Jesus left behind, some in doubt, others His enemies were proud of their deed, others still confused and afraid. However, the souls in Limbo were joyful and filled to the brim with happiness.
Today we know the end of the story, we too should see this day as joyful, since the gates of Heaven are NOW opened for all. All who desire to spend their eternity with God, all who keep His Commandments and all who seek His One, Holy, Apostolic, Catholic Church founded by Jesus or have a desire to find it. Seek, and you shall find!
A long time ago; Easter morning, imagine the First
How bright IN YOUR EYES was that joyful SUNBURST
Jesus Christ rising from what many believed dead
Guards dropped their weapons of IRON and fled
That giant stone melted as if a SANDCASTLE
The Divine Power of God winning the battle!
Remembering a time; Easter morning!
Intriguing as in Fandango Word Prompt.
Early this morning looking out into the heavens was so intriguing since the moon was still so very full, bright and beautiful.
This tidbit from the Old Farmers Almanac was also intriguing along with being informative about the full moon in March 2019.
THE FULL MOON AND EASTER
Did you know: Easter Sunday (in the Western Christian Church) is celebrated on the first Sunday after the full Moon that occurs on or just after the vernal equinox.
Since the full Moon AND the vernal equinox both fall on March 20 this year (in North America, at least), you might expect that Easter Sunday would be on the following Sunday, March 24.
However, for simplicity’s sake, the Church set a fixed date for the equinox, March 21. Additionally, the Church does not rely on the date of the astronomical full Moon, but rather the ecclesiastical full Moon, which occurs on the 14th day of the ecclesiastical lunar month. The date of the ecclesiastical full Moon may fall one to two days before the astronomical full Moon. Therefore, because the first full Moon after March 21 doesn’t occur until April 19 this year, Easter Sunday 2019 falls on Sunday, April 21!
(This is not the first time the church’s “set” equinox and astronomy’s “moving” equinox affected Easter’s date; it last happened in 1981 and will happen again in 2038.)
My TOXIC poem today; Toxic because it might make you THINK. Thinking is according to the DEEP STATE, lethal, dangerous and harmful to their agenda.
A WORLD WITHOUT and WITH
In a world without a Hello, there would be no Goodbye.
If there were no Beginning, there would be no End,
Or Past without a Present.
In a world without Low, there would be no High.
If there were no First, there could be no Last, or
Without a winner, there would be no Loser.
If there were no Virtue, there would be no Guilt.
A world without Truth, there can be no Lie,
If there were no God, there would be no Us.
We live in a world WITH His Promise – never
Darkness, to disrupt His Light, The Light of Christ.
A RESURRECTION because of A CRUCIFIXION.
Blessed Easter to all, ~Myrnanne
Christmas ends, but now pre Easter season begins on the Sunday of Septuagesima which this year was last Sunday, January 28, 2018.
Although Christmas ended for the world December 26, according to the Church, it ended Saturday before Septuagesima Sunday. We as Catholic realize this.
The dictionary defines the word “realize” this way – “to grasp or understand clearly or to make real.” We all realized the school shootings when we hear about them or the Las Vegas shooting last October. We see these horrors on the news, almost daily it seems.
Until we as an individual experience the terror, it will not become an actual realization because it will not be happening to us.
Likewise, when we hear the story of Christmas or the Passion of Christ we do believe and realize the event, but do we have a real realization of it. Realization in this sense is a gift of God.
Our Lady says she has many special graces to give us; few ask for them. “Ask, and you shall receive.”
Especially for the Traditionalist who believe and realize the teaching of the Eucharist there lies the hidden truth, just for the asking.
We can have this REALIZATION and have Christmas and Easter each day of our life.
Imagination being there when the King is born and seeing Him rise from the dead. What a grace!
The Living Christ is present in the Eucharist. Unity to Christ is through this sacrament. When we receive an accurate realization of this, we will run to the Blessed Sacrament, where we can talk to Jesus. Imagine speaking to Him in a way that others can not because of lack of faith. Seek a Traditional Catholic church to see the difference.
So close yet, so far away when forgetting to visit the Blessed Sacrament, we miss an opportunity to have a conversation with God and have Him all to yourself. We do realize He is there, or we wouldn’t be persevering as a Traditional Catholic, yet, the true realization seems to be missing too many times.
We need only to ask for this great grace, and we will then experience Christmas each day.
