Pray thus, Our Father who art in Heaven, Hallowed be Thy Name.

Easter Vigil

This is a magnificent image depicting the Water of Baptism as the Vine, the very Heart of God, flowing over the soul of the newly Baptized by the power of the Cross.
 
THE VINE AS THE HEART OF GOD
The young vine shoot bedded in the earth.
Small branch, always remember well
that you are of God,
that you are in God,
and that you are for God.
GRACE OF HOLY BAPTISM   Letaille See John 15:1-5
 
Note: At every Easter Vigil service, Christians renew their Baptismal Promises.

O my heart, remember the wondrous cross and think on it untiringly.
The cross is for us the Garden of delights, is the Garden of all blossoms:
the tree of beauty, blessed by the blood of the Savior...

A small image of the degrees of love.
My God, grow my wings.
In loving the Cross one finds His Heart, for the Divine Love can not live
without suffering.
Letaille, pl. 386
[Heart of Jesus, hearts of Mary, Joseph, and John the Beloved Disciple,
hearts of all believers]


Fixing the Eyes of our Heart on Jesus Crucified
~Leo the Great From ENLARGING THE HEART
“Behold the Love of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament” 18th Century holy card signed by the Antwerp engraver Pierre Balthasar Bouttats (1681-1756).

Sheltered by the Cross, the lily grows in peace towards heaven.
Bouasse Lebel, Paris Pl. 1472
Poor freezing soul, from the cold breath of the world, come warm up near the Heart of Jesus.
It is at this Divine touch that the cold heart comes alive, and little by little feels within itself that which befits the Heart of Jesus.
Letaille 19
