He rose and conquered the grave!

"Mighty To Save"

Everyone needs compassion
A love that's never failing
Let mercy fall on me

Everyone needs forgiveness
The kindness of a Saviour
The hope of nations

Saviour he can move the mountains
My God is mighty to save
He is mighty to save
Forever author of salvation
He rose and conquered the grave
Jesus conquered the grave

So take me as you find me
All my fears and failures
Fill my life again

I give my life to follow
Everything I believe in
Now I surrender

[Chorus 2x]

Shine your light and let the whole world see
We're singing for the glory of the risen king Jesus [2x]

[Chorus 2x]

Shine your light and let the whole world see
We're singing for the glory of the risen king Jesus [6x]

Fearful Yet Overjoyed

"Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went away quickly from the tomb,
fearful yet overjoyed and ran to announce the news to his disciples..."
"This is beautiful, and this is the mission of...
mothers and women...to give witness to their children
and grandchildren that Christ is Risen!"

"[F]eminine genius is centered on the redemptive act of Jesus Christ...
[For] a woman's relationship to the sacred keeps the Church and society on an even keel..."
Feminine Genius

"For our children to be 'godly offspring', they must orient their lives more
and more around Jesus as their King..." (p. 336).
Applying Our Faith in Service in Catholic Education: Homeward Bound

"The essence of evangelization is to tell everybody,
'Jesus died for you'" (Audio, April 6, 1999).

"It is to women, that God has entrusted the human person.
Safe-guarding the human person is important for the culture of societies."

"[B]lessings...can be your if you call on Mary.  She is waiting
for you with love of a mother's heart to lead you to her Son."

"What I can do, you cannot.  What you can do, I cannot.
But together, we can do something beautiful for God.

"Everyone works in the service of man. We doctors work directly on man himself... We have opportunities to do good that the priest doesn't have. Our mission is not finished when medicines are no longer of use. We must bring the soul to God... Catholic doctors are so necessary!"

"I grew up atheist.  As far back as I can remember,
it seemed simply obvious to me that neither God nor any kind of spiritual realm existed...
Research led me to the shocking conclusion that God exists,
and more shocking conclusion that 
he became man in the form of Jesus of Nazareth."

Women Overjoyed to Announce The News

"The mission of the apostolate of Living His Life Abundantly International, Inc. is to mend the Christian Fabric of today's culture by proclaiming the
abundant life in Jesus Christ
through all manner of communications and media."

"Pediatrician, mother and best-selling author of six books,
Dr. Meg Meeker is the country's leading authority
on parenting, teens and children's health."

"[M]editate upoin the mysteries of Christ, following the example of the Blessed Virgin Mary
who was so singularly associated with the incarnation, passion and glorious
resurrection of the Son of God."

 "[W]e celebrate all things Faith, Family
and Fun from a Catholic perspective."

"At Voice of Virtue, we're on a mission to help teens
defeat the temptations, rekindle what is good, true and
holy in their own lives, and live each day as
Jesus Christ wants them to."

"The mission of Mary's Advocates is to strengthen marriage, to eliminate forced no-fault divorce, and to support those who have been unjustly abandoned by their spouse."


The 10 Habits of Happy Mothers: Reclaiming Our Passion, Purpose, and Sanity
Dr. Meg Meeker

From the heart of a parent, uniting with Mary in prayer and reflecting on the thoughts she may
have had beginning with her son's infancy, then empathizing with her being confronted with Christ's Passion, is an incomprehensible experience.  To imagine her as a mother witness her son after the Resurrection, is simply stunning, captivating, and points one to God's grace, comfort, power, and miracle available in the lives of us all. - Edward C.L.D., Catholic Dads HQ

Instead, they study harder and learn more about mathematics so they can understand how its parts fit together. So it is with the Catholic faith."
