EASTER AND RECONCILIATION - 2
Antoni BigCuore *
By the Bible we find that God will reveal to humanity bit by bit, through the great prophets until the end by the death of the cross of Jesus and his glorious resurrection.
The Master says, "I am the way, truth and life.
No one comes to the Father but by Me If you know me, certainly have known my Father also: from now on you know, have seen through it. "(John, 14, 6 -7)
Jesus was incarnate by the Holy Spirit to fulfill faithfully the determinations of the Father
Easter, Reconciliation and appearance at La Salette, France, is all about!.
When the assembly is directed to the Eucharistic table, is an act of humility, of children reconciled with God.
Sin distances us from God. (Master Jesus says, "Whoever commits sin is a slave of sin.").
The Eucharist brings us closer.
Through it, Christ is embodied in us.
By way of illustration, the sacraments are perceptible signs of God's grace.
The baptism and the Eucharist, were born after the Roman soldier, plants the spear in the breast of Jesus, which flowed water and blood.
The sacrament of penance or confession, is a remedy that God made us to be reconciled with Him and the community, for that sin broke the relationship.
God is always faithful, we are weak!.
The Jewish people celebrated Passover sacrifice a lamb, within their specific rituals. (See the book of Exodus, 12) We Catholic Christians, we eat our Passover by the Holy Eucharist that we are given every day at mass.
Remember in the New Testament, Jesus the Master's words: "Having earnestly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer.
For I tell you: I will not go to eat it until it is fulfilled in the Kingdom of God.
Taking the cup, gave thanks and said: "TAKE THIS CUP AND DISTRIBUTE IT BETWEEN YOU.
For I tell you: he will not drink the fruit of the vine until the coming of the Kingdom of God.
Then took the bread and having given thanks, broke it and gave it to them, saying, "This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of Me."
In the same way he took the cup after supper, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in my blood which is shed for you ... (Luke 22, 15-20).
Highlights to note that the old covenant was made with the Jewish patriarchs and prophets.
The New Covenant was instituted by Jesus.
He is the new and eternal covenant!.
St. Paul says that without the resurrection of Jesus, our faith would be vain!
The Easter Triduum is the height of Catholic Christian liturgy.
It is time to reconcile with our brothers, sisters, and especially with God through the Sacrament of Confession and the Eucharist.
Hence the urgent need to prepare well to receive Holy Communion.
Sublime moment that God gives us in his infinite goodness and mercy.
Says Paul: "Let yourselves be reconciled to God."
The message of La Salette also comes this pitch.
Our Lady tells us that Sunday is the day of "Easter" weekly.
It is time to receive the Holy Eucharist as an act of humility and love of neighbor.
Giving and receiving forgiveness are fundamental to celebrate Easter with authenticity and depth.
Let us reflect for that matter!
"PROOF OF NO GREATER LOVE, LIFE TO DONATE BY BROTHER," says the Catholic music.
I leave here, my best wishes for a Holy Easter (without overdoing the food and drink) with plenty of light, peace and joy in their hearts!
