SECOND WEEK OF EASTER: FAITH

Sunday (Divine Mercy):
“Divine mercy fully makes up for the impotence of human justice. God can say he is satisfied and remit our debt, simply ‘because he is good and his mercy infinite’.”

St. Josemaria Escriva
Friends of God, no. 168

Monday:
“Stir up that fire of faith. Christ is not a figure that has passed. He is not a memory that is lost in history. He lives! ‘Jesus Christus heri et hodie, ipse et in saecula’, says Saint Paul. — ‘Jesus Christ is the same to-day as he was yesterday and as he will be for ever’.”

St. Josemaria Escriva
The Way, no. 584

Tuesday:
“God is the same as always. It is men of faith that are needed: and then, there will be a renewal of the wonders we read of in the Gospel. Ecce non est abbreviata manus Domini, God’s arm, his power, has not grown weaker!”

St. Josemaria Escriva
The Way, no. 586

Wednesday:
Omnia possibilia sunt credenti. Everything is possible for anyone who has faith. The words are Christ’s. How is it that you don’t say to him with the Apostles: ‘Increase my faith’?”

St. Josemaria Escriva
The Way, no. 588

Thursday:
Per Ipsum et cum Ipso et in Ipso. (Through him, with him, and in him.) For Christ is the way; he is the mediator; in him we find everything. Outside of him our life is empty. In Jesus Christ, and taught by him, ‘we dare to say: Our Father.’ We dare to call the Lord of heaven and earth our Father. The presence of the living Christ in the host is the guarantee, the source and the culmination of his presence in the world.”

St. Josemaria Escriva
Christ is Passing By, no. 102

Friday:
“Christ is alive in Christians. Our faith teaches us that man, in the state of grace, is divinized — filled with God. We are men and women, not angels. We are flesh and blood, people with sentiments and passions, with sorrows and joys. And this divinization affects everything human; it is a sort of foretaste of the final resurrection. ‘Christ has risen from the dead, the first-fruits of those who have fallen asleep. For since by a man came death, by a man also comes resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made to live.’”

St. Josemaria Escriva
Christ is Passing By, no. 103

Saturday (Feast of St. Catherine of Siena):
“So, our faith must be living — a faith which makes us really believe in God and keep up a continuous conversation with him. A Christian life should be one of constant prayer, trying to live in the presence of God from morning to night and from night to morning. A Christian can never be a lonely man, since he lives in continual contact with God, who is both near us and in heaven.”

St. Josemaria Escriva
Christ is Passing By, no. 103
