A thought from Pope Francis today:

"Easter always ends in the Resurrection and in peace. This does not mean a happy ending, but a loving commitment that makes you tread a difficult path. 

But He trod it first. 

It is the promise of love which helps us pass this difficult road. This comforts us and gives us strength…

It is a time to turn off the TV and open the Bible. 

It is a time to pull ourselves away from our smartphones and connect ourselves to the Gospel. 

When I was a child there was no television but we had the habit of not listening to the radio… It is a time to renounce pulling ourselves away from the cellphone and connecting to the Gospel."

- Pope Francis

Let's all try this today?

Let us pray...

'Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.' - Romans 12, 2
