“Very early when the sun had risen, on the first day of the week, they came to the tomb...
When they looked up, they saw that the stone had been rolled back; it was very large.
On entering the tomb they saw a young man sitting on the right side, clothed in a white robe,
and they were utterly amazed. He said to them, ‘Do not be amazed! You seek Jesus of Nazareth, the crucified.
He has been raised; He is not here. Behold the place where they laid Him.’”
(Mark 16:2-6)

 

Excerpt from Powers and Principalities Talk given by M. Nadine


“I am the Resurrection and the Life” (Jn 11:25)

Like John the Baptist, we too should be able to say to one another, “Behold the Lamb” (cf. Jn 1:29) alive and made flesh in you. That is what the Mystical Body is all about – Jesus Christ, risen and alive. Our testimony, our witness must always be to Jesus, the Lamb Who was slain. The Book of Revelation has a lot to say about the Lamb Who was slain. The Lamb is now empowered, and He is coming (cf. Rv 22:7).

Being in union with the Lamb will always involve sacrificial love, because remember, the Lamb is a victim Lamb, a sacrificial offering. Sacrificial love calls us to enter more fully into the whole Pascal Mystery; into the life, death and resurrection of Jesus. It invites us to make it a living reality in our life, so that we can defeat satan by our testimony (cf. Rv 21:11). “Behold, here is the Lamb.” Here is our Weapon, our Power.

One of the ways we do this is through the spirit of the Beatitudes, which are so special, even though we do not often hear about them. The Beatitudes are so filled with virtue that each one is like a sword. Each one calls us to a positive, “Be happy” attitude. The one thing the enemy cannot imitate is joy. The Beatitudes are promises of tremendous joy and joy is the infallible sign of the presence of God. There can be even a false peace, but never a false joy. When Jesus gave us the Beatitudes, He wanted us to see them not only as a defense, but also as offensive weapons against the enemy. The first one is extremely important for prayer warriors. “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven” (Mt 5:3).

We are all involved in a deadly conflict between the kingdom of satan and the Kingdom of God, and Jesus promises us that when we are poor in Spirit, then the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to us. “Spirit” of course refers to the Holy Spirit. We are not in satan’s kingdom if this beautiful spirit of poverty is visibly present in our lives.
