Waiting for our Lord Jesus Christ

He is not here, for He has risen, just as He said. Come, see the place where He was lying.

Matthew 28:6

“We adore you, O Christ, and we praise you, because by your holy cross you have redeemed the world.”

I could only be more grateful
for the sacrifice of my son for us.
Yet, what emptiness I felt
trying to live without him whom I loved so!
But, only two days later
that emptiness was filled beyond belief —
he had risen!
Our saviour had opened the doors
to a new life.
That is the way it had to be —
because his undying love for you
would not stop at anything less.
I could rejoice forever,
but not in silence.

My Saviour,
thank you!.
Thank you for such endless love
that helps me to rise
out of my own sinfulness.
I will try again
to live a better life.
Help me to always remember that love.
Mary, mother of our risen Saviour,
teach me to be like you,
and in my love for others,
love him in return.
