Dear Friend,

Praised be Jesus and Mary!

CHRIST IS RISEN!!! HAPPY EASTER!!!! YAY!!! \(^O^)/ \(^O^)/ \(^O^)/

Really! A very happy Easter to you and your family!!! c”,)k

It’s a big, joyful day. The resurrection of Jesus is the climax of our Christian faith. In the Reflection of the Word by Msgr. Philip Heng, S.J, he said, “…Jesus, who has conquered death, and has opened the gates of heaven for us to gain eternal life.” He also invites us to let this Truth of the Risen Christ change our attitude towards materialistic concerns in life.

I was thinking of what else I would like to share and write. After praying, I felt the urge to sing this worship song by Chris Tomlin. (I like Chris Tomlin.) Several lines struck me (in bold letters in the lyrics below) and I thought that this is exactly what I want to share with everyone today. Truly, we are forgiven and free. It costs Jesus so much suffering and even death, but that’s simply how much he loves us. So our Saviour and Messiah, Jesus Christ, is indeed worthy of all our praises. So let every voice sing out and let every knee bow down for all that we are and all that we have are all gifts from God.

I embedded a video with lyrics above. I do not own it; I just got it from YouTube. And, you can find the lyrics below. I invite you to pray ad sing along. It’s a beautiful song.

Before the day
Before the light
Before the world revolved around the sun
God on high
Stepped down into time
And wrote the story of His love for everyone

He has filled our hearts with wonder
So that we always remember

You and I were made to worship
You and I are called to love
You and I are forgiven and free
You and I embrace surrender
You and I choose to believe
You and I will see who we were meant to be

All we are
And all we have
Is all a gift from God that we receive
Brought to life
We open up our eyes
To see the majesty and glory of the King

He has filled our hearts with wonder
So that we always remember

You and I were made to worship
You and I are called to love
You and I are forgiven and free
You and I embrace surrender
You and I choose to believe
You and I will see who we were meant to be

And even the rocks cry out
And even the Heavens shout
At the sound of His holy name
So let every voice sing out
And let every knee bow down
He is worthy of all our praise

You and I were made to worship
You and I are called to love
You and I are forgiven and free, yeah
You and I embrace surrender
You and I choose to believe
You and I will see, you and I will see

You and I were made to worship
You and I are called to love
You and I are forgiven and free, yeah
You and I embrace surrender
You and I choose to believe
You and I will see who we were meant to be

Again, happy Easter!

Love,

Kristine G. Veneracion
