Our prayer this Easter
On Palm Sunday, our Holy Father Benedict XVI explained the promise of God contained in the joyous shouts of those who welcomed Jesus into the city of Jerusalem:
The answer is found throughout Scripture, which reminds us that the Messiah fulfills the promise of God’s blessing, God’s original promise to Abraham, father of all believers: “I will make of you a great nation and I will bless you … and by you all the families of the earth shall bless themselves” (Gen 12:2-3).
Though all the Church will pass through the darkness of Holy Thursday and the Passion of Good Friday, we advance towards Easter with the hope that God fulfills His promises.
As Benedict XVI explained, that promise is a “drawing to Himself humanity of every age and offering to all the gift of redemption.” Every age! That means even our own, the age of the 21st century with all its dangers, challenges, and opportunities.
We at Catholic Advocate have created this apostolate in response to His promise and to our obligation as Catholics to participate thoroughly in the political process.
Please join us this Easter in praying for the future of our nation and our Church and that all of us will affirm the hope that God’s blessings will be in our future, each and every day.
