I am with you always until the end of this world - Jesus (Matthew 28:20).

Preach the Word in season and out of season reproving, rebuking or advising always with patience and providing instructions (2 Timothy 4:2).

Do not fear, Mary, for God has looked kindly on you (Luke 1:30).

Anything worth doing is worth doing poorly. - G. K. Chesterton

My Gospel Reflections for April 25, Monday in the octave of Easter: Matthew 28:8-18

My Reflections:
How did we observed the just concluded Holy Week? We may have our own different observance. I for one piously observed all the laid activities of the church. 

Being summer and since Holy Thursday and Good Friday were holiday many took advantage of this break and they went on vacation to beaches and other places where they can rest and re-charge. In the process they’ve forgotten the true essence of Holy Week.  

The proper way to observe Holy Week is given to us by the two Marys in the gospel; they both gave Jesus the honor that He richly deserved. They did this by embracing His feet and giving Him homage for they both knew the importance of Jesus in their lives. He was their God thus they both fittingly gave Him proper honor and respect.

This is how it should always be during Holy Week.

Have you properly commemorated the just concluded Holy Week?
