04-24-14 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

April 24, 2014
(Thursday in the Octave of Easter)
Open mind aJesus “opened their minds to understand the Scriptures.  And he said to them, “Thus it is written that the Christ would suffer and rise from the dead on the third day and that repentance, for the forgiveness of sins, would be preached in his name to all the nations
Lk 24:35-48

The prophet Isaiah spoke about the suffering servant:
He was spurned and avoided by men, a man of suffering, knowing pain, like one from whom you turn your face, spurned, and we held him in no esteem.  Yet it was our pain that he bore, our sufferings he endured.”  Is 53

While the prophet Hosea speaks of the third day:  “He will revive us after two days; on the third day he will raise us up, to live in his presence.”  Hos 6:2

John the Baptist spoke of repentance for the forgiveness of sins, as did Peter and Paul after the Ascension of Jesus – to all the nations!  Peter addressed the people after a crippled man was healed in the Name of Jesus, saying, “God has thus brought to fulfillment what he had announced beforehand through the mouth of all the prophets, that his Christ would suffer. Repent, therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be wiped away, and that the Lord may grant you times of refreshment…”  Acts 3:11-26

It was all for a ‘Purpose’.
And that purpose was us, beloved . . .
that WE might be saved!
