The glory of Easter, is a reminder of who we are: we are the Baptized! It is in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, the Holy Trinity, that we enter a new life that is immersed in the Paschal Mystery of the Life, Death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ.

During this Easter Season, as we acknowledge the 100th Anniversary of the Apparitions at Fatima, we are reminded that at the center of the message of Fatima is the good news that God, the Holy Trinity, exists and we are invited to have a personal relationship with Him, who is Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The Trinity's "messenger," Our Lady, reminds us that in order to enter into this "heart to heart" relationship with our God, we must repent of our sins and be reconciled with our Lord and with one another.

This was stressed in the life of one of the visionaries of Fatima, Sr. Lucia. She was granted a vision of the Holy Trinity. In the vision, the Son of God was depicted as the Crucified One. Under the right arm of the cross of Jesus appeared Our Lady of Fatima. Under the left arm of the cross appeared two words that encompass the revelation of Fatima: Grace and Mercy.

Let us desire to have a greater love for the "indwelling" of the Holy Trinity in our lives. Let us never forget that we ARE the Baptized! May the Easter gift of "grace and mercy" be ours through the intercession of Our Lady of the Rosary.

Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us.
