03-31-18 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

March 31, 2018
(Holy Saturday and Easter Vigil Mass)
There are actually no daily readings for today, Holy Saturday.  But we do have the extensive readings for the Easter Vigil, going through all of salvation history.  And it all begins with this quote from the First Reading:

In the beginning, when God created the heavens and the earth, the earth was a formless wasteland, and darkness covered the abyss, while a mighty wind swept over the waters.

Then God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.  God saw how good the light was. God then separated the light from the darkness. God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” Thus evening came, and morning followed—the first day.   Gn_1:1-2:2

Did you ever notice how in those first two sentences of the Bible we are introduced to the main Character of the entire Bible:  “God Created” (Father), “mighty wind” (Holy Spirit) and “God said” (the Word – Jesus).  Character (not characters) as ONE Holy Trinity, united and consubstantial!

And then there is the Light!  That Almighty Light!  Separated from the darkness.  The light and the truth – they go together.  But the light and the darkness are separated.  In God there is no darkness.  So, what about us, beloved?  Are we living in the light or the dark?  Are WE the light to our world, or the darkness?

We are our Father’s creation, so we must be the light!  We hold within us that Breath, that Wind of the Holy Spirit, so we must be Light.  And we are living the Word of Truth, the Word of Jesus in every thought, in every action, so we must be that LIGHT!  Oh how blessed are we, beloved, to be the very light of God.  The light and the Truth and the Love that Jesus planted within us.  Happy Holy Saturday!  Not in the darkness of a tomb, but in the light of your heart!

And God saw how good it was!
