It is up to us... to tell (Easter Tuesday)

So then, men ought to regard us as servants of Christ and as those
entrusted with the secret things of God.  Now it is required that those
who have been given a trust must prove faithful.  ...
You are fools for Christ, but you are so wise in Christ! - I Cor 4: 1,2,10

Still Life of Flowers and Grapes Encircling a Monstrance Jan van Kessel (1670)
"Our people are becoming like Mary of Magdela
when she came to the tomb. 
'They have taken the Lord from the tomb,
and we don't know where they put Him' (Jn 20:2).  
It is up to us ... to tell our people where our Risen Savior is. 

    The Blessed Sacrament is Our Risen Savior
with all the power of His love and mercy flowing
out to those who come into His presence! 
This is where we must run, like Peter and John. 
This is where we must bring everyone. 

For each hour will advance the day
when the light of His love and mercy will shine out,
and then like Him, His people will be resurrected."

Excerpt from Letters to a Brother Priest
 Rev. Fr. Vincent Martin Lucia and Rev. Msgr. Josefino Ramirez
