1. The Resurrection
LOVE says: Live! I want to give you the best life that exists: my Life, the divine Life.
To live the divine Life means: to LOVE.
LOVE is the sense of my life. I'm born for LOVE.
He who does not love remains in death. 1 Jn 3,14
Father, how good you are! You will not leave us in death, but give us share in your own divine life.
Indeed, only when we love, we truly live. Only when we love, we are happy.
So fill my heart and hand with love, goodness and mercy, and let it flow over to any of my fellow men.
Help me to love all in the way I want to be loved.
Let me be so cheerful and benevolent, that all who encounter me feel your presence and your love.
Grant me the strength to repay evil with good.
Grant that I love also myself with all my deficiencies, weaknesses and limitations - as you love me.
Let me look at everything as an opportunity to love, to respond to everything with love, so that my life will become all LOVE.
2. The Ascension
LOVE says: I'll stay with you. I'm not leaving you alone.
"And lo, I am with you always, to the close of the age." Mt 28,20
Oh Jesus, what a promise! Wouldn’t this be reason enough to let drop all worries and fears? You, to whom all authority in heaven and on earth has been given (cf. Mt 28,18), you are always with me, though I do not see you.
A life free of fear and worry is possible!
No real misfortune, no evil can ever happen to me if I stay steadily with you and trust you completely.
For this confidence let me pray the author of all good and say: Our Father...
3. The Descent of the Holy Spirit
LOVE says: I love you. I accept you just as you are. I stand by you, I never give on you up and I pardon you all. I have compassion with all you do and suffer. You are my well-beloved child. I want you to become perfectly happy. Happy is only he who loves.
So abandon yourself entirely to the Spirit of love who dwells in your heart.
God' s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us. Rom 5,5
Let’s pray with filial love to him who, in his Holy Spirit, has given us his own heart: May the Holy Spirit unfold his power within us: Our Father...
4. The Assumption of Mary into Heaven
LOVE says: You will not die.
“Whoever lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?” Jn 11,26
Yes, Jesus, I believe you. Anyone who believes in you, unites his life with your life, and that means: with LOVE itself.
Love is surrender. What I have given away, I cannot lose anymore, it has become a gift, it has become LOVE. Thus, death becomes the climax of my life, the moment of perfect surrender, the fulfillment of my love.
O Mary, to you I leave everything I have and will not worry about what you will do with it. I am your child and trust you completely. So I can already on earth begin the life in heaven and return confidently home to my Father who will receive me with open arms.
5. The Coronation of Mary in Heaven
LOVE says: Come and rejoice! You should be glad and rejoice with me without end.
“These things I have spoken to you that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full." Jn 15,11
Your joy, O Jesus, is to rejoice your Father. What rejoices the Father is only LOVE.
O Mary, obtain for us the grace that we also want in our life only this one: to rejoice the Father by our love and our boundless confidence in his goodness and his mercy.
Then we too, can sing with you the praise of his LOVE in blissful joy.
