Matthew, Chapter 28, verse 10
10Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid. Go tell my brothers to go to Galilee, and there they will see me.”
Such is the mercy of Christ. He says go tell my brothers; after they all deserted Him. Such is His love. Still emptying Himself He calls them brothers. If we have a hurt or offense with anyone today let us not only forgive them but follow the example of Christ and treat them in our heart as brothers or sisters.
Today would be a good day to prepare yourself for the Feast of Divine Mercy this upcoming Sunday by taking a “Emmaus walk”. I suggest taking a hike or walk and while walking say a joyful rosary and carry with you a yellow rose praying for the person with which you need to have your heart healed over with the brotherly love of Christ. The stem symbolizes the wood of His cross; the Thorns of His crown and the bud the love of His heart. After you are done with the walk/hike take the rose to the one you prayed for or take it to the Blessed Sacrament chapel and offer it to Christ for love of your new brother or sister in Christ.
