The risen Lord is the reason of our joy

“The Risen Lord is the reason of our joy.” Amidst all the experiences of pain and suffering that was and is before us at personal level, as a country and in the world, we thank the Lord Jesus for dying and rising for each of us, for giving all and everything, even His life out of love for each of us. Thank you Lord for loving each of us personally this much!

In Tetuan, Zamboanga City, from April 16 to 20, 2014, holy Wednesday to Easter Sunday, we celebrated the Easter triduum together with twenty eight (28) young people with thirteen (13) sisters including one (1) novice and one (1) postulant. This year we decided to divide the group into two- the silent group and the group that will do some rituals. The silent group was composed of those who already attended the Easter Triduum more than once and the second group was composed of those who joined the Triduum for the first and second time only. It was a beautiful experience for each one of those who joined and for us facilitators- the sisters, what a joy to have the young with us in this moment of journeying with Jesus in His passion, death and resurrection. Thank you Lord for this experience of Your very deep love and for the gift of faith in You and in Your resurrection!
