In these days the Church prays and fasts, and we with her, that these three forms of death may hear the voice of the Son of God and arise. The mystery of Christ’s resurrection is about to produce its wondrous result in each of these degrees. Let us unite ourselves to this design of the divine mercy, praying urgently night and day to the Redeemer. Then when a few days hence we see the dead restored to life, then shall we cry with the inhabitants of Naim: ‘‘A great prophet has arisen among us ; God has visited His people.”
- Dom. Geuranger
A true conversion finds God always ready for it.
- St. Augustine
