That the law of the Lord may ever be on your lips

It’s still Easter! Welcome to the Octave!

Easter Monday:

INTROIT Ex. 13:5, 9
The Lord has brought you into a land flowing with milk and honey, alleluia! so that the law of the Lord may ever be on your lips, alleluia, alleluia!
Ps. 104:1. Praise the Lord and invoke his name; make His deeds known among the nations.

Your resurrection, O God, has brought healing to a sick world. Continue to shower from heaven gifts upon Your people that they may freely march forward to eternal life.

GRADUAL Ps. 117:24, 2
This is the day the Lord has made; let us be glad and rejoice in it.
Let Israel proclaim now that the Lord is good, that His mercy endures forever.

Try to keep the season holy by participating through and/or attending Adoration if you can. It’s not a coincidence that all this is happening at a time when technology can assist us when the Church can’t, or won’t. Read the Mass every day. Get off the internet and make time for some additional spiritual reading. If you are like me, things have been a bit distracting these past several weeks, and you still have reading that was intended for Lent that you never got to.

The Lord is good! His mercy endures forever. Get with the program. Nothing else going on around you matters. The Long Lent is over and He is truly risen. He is commanding from on high, He is in control. He loves you with an infinite love, and He desires for you to love Him back. This isn’t sentimentalism; He loves you deeply and He has a deep yearning for you to love Him back. The Creator of the Universe made you in order that you should know, love, and serve Him in this world, so that you can be with Him forever in the next. You were born for this.

Learn to love our Lord through the law.

  1. Happy Easter Mark….and thanks for this. Reminders like this much appreciated in all the doom and gloom we’re surronded by.

    Mirror of justice, pray for us.

  2. Yes, thank you Mark. A much needed reminder for me as well. This week is Bright Week in the Eastern Catholic rites. A fitting name for such a joyous week. It’s too easy to get caught up in the cares of the world. I *thought* that I *needed* to constantly check news, blogs, updates – but then for Lent tried to make it only once a day or every other day and felt much better spiritually. Your blog brings me back to reality – thank you. A Happy and Joyous Easter to you.
