Matthew 27: 57-61

As evening approached, there came a rich man from Arimathea, named Joseph, who had himself become a disciple of Jesus. Going to Pilate, he asked for Jesus’ body, and Pilate ordered that it be given to him. Joseph took the body, wrapped it in a clean linen cloth, and placed it in his own new tomb that he had cut out of the rock. He rolled a big stone in front of the entrance to the tomb and went away. Mary Magdalene and the other Mary were sitting there opposite the tomb.

The last station brings the story of our Lord’s passion to a close but  this is not the end.  From his birth until his death on Golgotha, Jesus remained faithful to God.  In three days time Jesus will rise from the dead on Easter Sunday delivering us the promise of life everlasting.

What are you thankful for….

Because of  God’s grace we are given a chance at salvation just as the good thief Saint Dismas was.  This grace cannot be bought, worked for nor bribed. This grace comes to us in the person of Jesus Christ and in the knowledge that we are loved by our God and that there is eternal life. Jesus didn’t come to us just to preach, but also to show us how much God loves us.  He showed us the depth of this love when he allowed himself to be crucified.  Jesus himself said, “no greater love has a person than  to give his life for another”.  Jesus talked the talk, but even more, he walked it.

Has God given you good health, a good meal, a good job?
Then thank God.
Has God blessed you with family and friends who care?
Praise God.
Has God revealed the solution to a difficult problem?
Give God his due.
Has God saved you from sin and eternal death?
Then give God glory and follow Him daily.

Reflection Question

Jesus I am thankful for……………..

With St. Dismas we pray:

Dear God, Thank you for caring so much to send your only Son to be with us. We believe that one day we will all be together again in paradise.
