Stand erect and raise your heads because your redemption is at hand. 
Dear friends, thoughts and words escape me. Below you will find words from Pope Francis, from his homily this morning at Casa Santa Maria. Let us pray for one another and especially for those who have no one to pray for them.

Faced with the tragedies of life, we are called to look to the horizon, because we have been redeemed and the Lord will come to save us. This teaches us to live the trials of the world, not in a compromise with worldliness or paganism which brings about our destruction, but in hope, separating ourselves from this worldly and pagan seduction by looking to the horizon and hoping in Christ the Lord. Hope is our strength for moving forward. But we must ask it of the Holy Spirit.

FAITH IS THE REALIZATION OF WHAT IS HOPED FOR AND EVIDENCE OF THINGS NOT SEEN.(Heb 11:1)
We pray, almighty God, that those to whom you give the joyof participating in divine mysteriesmay never be parted from you.(Prayer after Communion, Mass)
