All Glory Laud and Honor

*

All glory, laud, and honor
To You, Redeemer, King,
To Whom the lips of children
Made sweet hosannas ring.

You are the King of Israel
and David’s royal Son,
Now in the Lord’s name coming,
The King and Blessed One.

The company of angels
Is praising You on high;
And we with all creation
In chorus make reply.

The people of the Hebrews
With palms before You went;
Our praise and prayer and anthems
Before You we present.

To You before Your passion
They sang their hymns of praise;
To You, now high exalted,
Our melody we raise.

As You received their praises,
Accept the prayers we bring,
For You delight in goodness,
O good and gracious King!

#ShortNews: Caritas devotes Easter message to migrants

“This Eastertime, we at Caritas would like to invite you to join us on a journey of faith, hope and love with migrants…

A small gesture like reaching out with your arms to somebody else means a lot as it touches different levels of human existence. This is the gesture we are encouraging people to do as part of Share the Journey.

I reach out and if a person feels alone and isolated, my reaching out is a gesture of solidarity. If I reach out and that person is wounded, it could be a sign of healing. If I reach out and the person is lost, it could mean an offer of guidance. If I reach out and the person feels like nobody cares, then it will be a sign of friendship. That small gesture means different things in different stages of people’s life journey.

Christ performed the ultimate gesture of reaching out to others on the cross. He opened his arms and emptied himself out to receive God’s will…”

#ShortNews: Ukrainian Catholic bishops in US issue Easter pastoral letter

EASTER PASTORAL OF THE UKRAINIAN CATHOLIC HIERARCHY OF THE U.S.A. TO OUR CLERGY, HIEROMONKS AND BROTHERS, RELIGIOUS SISTERS, SEMINARIANS AND BELOVED FAITHFUL;

“Christ is Risen!”, “Indeed He is Risen!” greetings will be heard everywhere around the world. This is the best and perhaps most ignored message around the world. It was so when it was announced for the first time on Easter morning, and continues to be the case today too. Christ is Risen! Do you believe, doubt or dismiss it? Jesus’ own Apostles had a difficulty to accept the message, “when they saw Him, they worshipped, but they doubted” (Mt. 28:17). They saw Him, but still questioned the fact. How many times do we wonder and accept Jesus’ real presence in the Eucharist when we receive Him at the Divine Liturgy?
