THE POWER OF PUTTING GOD IN CONTROL By Pablo Diaz.  Most people equate the word “surrender” to a negative action such as quitting or submitting to defeat. Yet those who are “in control” and take matters into their own hands are often praised by our media. The irony of this is that, over time, we all age or get ill and must surrender part, if not all, control to others. The dictionary defines “surrender” as “to yield (something) to the possession or power of another; deliver up possession on demand or under duress.” We humans are naturally resistant to giving our power to others. We want to be economically, professionally and even personally self-sufficient. But it is this same spirit that can keep us from fully committing ourselves spiritually or wanting to give ourselves completely to anyone. And this thought process goes against what it means to whole-heartily follow, submit and give our all to God. When we resist handing over full control of our lives to God, we miss out. It is only when we surrender and give our all, that we begin to grow as someone not possessed by materialistic things or power, but by love, peace and grace. This is when giving becomes more important than receiving. Jesus said, “Whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will save it.”   Why such an expectation and demand? Unless we surrender our personal power and will, it’s difficult to be under His Lordship. But when we finally let go, we experience the power of surrendering to a gracious, loving God whose greatest desire is to help us live to the fullest. God, help me to give You my all so that I may experience the power to be completely under Your leadership.

HELPING KIDS REMEMBER THE TRUE MEANING OF EASTERInstead of chocolate bunnies and egg hunts, shift Easter's focus to faith and rebirth.   Jelly beans, cellophane-covered baskets, giant candy bunnies. As I spotted all the trappings of Easter in the supermarket, I thought to myself, No wonder kids get confused about Easter.  Explaining Christmas was a cinch–the birth of Christ is simpler to grasp. Creches, carols and pageants all reinforce the message, making it easier to keep Santa Claus in perspective. But how could I explain to my two school-age children something as profound and mysterious as the Resurrection?  I knew that other parents were struggling with this, too. In fact, I took the greatest comfort in the advice of one friend who said, "Start with the traditions you already have." On Good Friday in our home we always colour Easter eggs–three dozen. What could be a more obvious symbol of new life than eggs? Last year I told the children about a chick I once saw hatching in an incubator. I described how he poked his way out with his beak. "A new life. That's what we celebrate at Easter," I explained, "the new life we have in Christ."  The next bit of inspiration came while I was shopping. I found a set of Bible storybooks for my son, Brinck, and came across a tiny gold cross necklace for Katy. I included these presents in the children's Easter baskets, and since then I've added prayer journals, tapes, Scripture stickers and bookmarks. I like the tradition of Easter baskets, especially when I can include gifts that will nurture the children's faith.  The third idea came from Guideposts contributor Posy Baker Lough. "Try something," she suggested, "to give children a good visual image of the Resurrection." She described a project at her church: The children were given caterpillars, and in the weeks prior to Easter the kids watched them spin cocoons, metamorphosing into butterflies. "The butterflies were released just before Easter Sunday service," Posy said. "Afterward, when we explained to the kids that the cocoon was like Christ's death and entombment, and that his resurrection was like the butterfly, they understood."  At Easter time, images of new life are usually easy to find: crocuses and daffodils blooming, lambs gamboling in fields, birds returning to their nests, green returning to the landscape. But sometimes spring comes late (or Easter comes early) and the holiday meets a gray, cold day. Then I think of something that happened to my friend Alison.  On an unseasonably cold Easter morning when Alison was 10 years old, her mother urged her to go outside to see what was in the yard. There in the snow her mother had made a rainbow of hundreds of brightly coloured lollipops, sparkling like bits of stained glass. "It seemed like a miracle," Alison says. "Magical, beautiful, full of mystery and wonder."  And that, I realize, is what I want more than anything else to give my children: the miracle of Easter. It was God's most astonishing miracle, the resurrection of Christ and the promise it held for us: eternal life.  So, finally, go to church on Easter. Put on your best clothes, take flowers from your garden, sing all the hymns with alleluias. Celebrate. Last Easter Sunday I was delighted when I overheard one youngster say, "Christmas is Jesus' birthday, but Easter is everybody's birthday."  Yes, it is. Easter is the time for you and your children–for all of us–to joyfully celebrate our new birth.  By Kathryn Slattery

PALM SUNDAY OF THE LORD’S PASSION. We need to remember that contemplation of the face of Jesus, died and risen, restores our humanity even when it has been broken by the troubles of his life or marred by sin (gaudeteet exsultate 151) Luke 22:14-23:56 ‘This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me’.  We are now in the final days of Lent.  On Thursday night the Triduum begins (Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Holy Saturday), bringing our Lenten journey to its climactic celebration on Easter Sunday.  Today, the liturgy invites us to contemplate the face of Jesus, the suffering Lord.  If you are tempted to doubt God’s love, look at Christ crucified. Here the mystery of God’s love is revealed.  St. Augustine said, ‘God loves each one of us as if there were only one of us to love’.  Lord, pour out your grace upon us as this Holy Week begins and as we journey towards the glory of the cross and the victory of the resurrection.  Let us proclaim, ‘Hosanna, blessed is Jesus the servant King, the Lord of Lords’. – Walk With Me A Lenten Journey of Prayer for 2019.

HUMBLE HOLINESS.  There is a grammar of faith: words, language and a vocabulary that we are familiar with and use in our daily life: the sacraments, prayer, the Eucharist and so on.  So too, there is a grammar of humility. ‘Thank you’, ‘I am sorry’, ‘Forgive me’, ‘Please may I’, are examples of it.  Humility is first and foremost a practical virtue.  It impacts on the way we live our lives and is conscious of the God given dignity of others.  Humility is related to love, St. Paul, when describing love, says that love is not rude (1 Corinthians 13:1).  Not being rude or offensive is much more than watching our P’s and our Q’s, it is about understanding that everyone we meet and encounter is created in the image and likeness of God.  Lord, by your grace, may I live a life worthy of the calling I have received and recognize in every human person their dignity and value as human beings but also as your children.  – Walk With Me A Lenten Journey of Prayer for 2019.
