The acclamation of Alleluia evokes for us the last words of Marie-Louise de Jésus.
« At night, some hours before she died, Marie-Louise repeated the word ‘Alleluia! Alleluia!’ .
Sister Julie wanted to know if she was conscious of what she was saying so she asked her what the word ‘Alleluia’ meant in French.
She answered: ‘Alleluia’ means: Let us rejoice in God.’ She then took the crucifix in her hands and proclaimed: ‘My Lord and my God !’ '*
May the expression of faith of our Mother Marie-Louise resound in our heart during this feast of Easter! May the same faith in the Risen Christ give us hope and the courage to commit ourselves to liberating the life-giving possibilities that already permeate our universe** and to open our hearts to Love without borders.
Easter Joy to You
