Easter Sunday

But God raised him up,
having loosed the pangs of death,
because it was not possible 
for Him to be held by it.
                                    Acts 2:24

Brothers and sisters:  If then you were raised with Christ,
seek what is above, where Christ is seated
at the right hand of God.  Think of what is
above, not of what is on earth.  For you have
died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.
When Christ your life appears, then you too will
appear with Him in glory.
                                          Col 3:1-4

Good Friday

For God so loved the world that He gave His
only Son, so that everyone
who believes in Him might not perish
but might have eternal life.
                             John 3:16

He was despised and rejected by men;
a man of sorrows, and acquainted
with grief...
                                Isaiah 53:3

Then Pilate took Jesus and had him scourged.  And the soldiers wove a crown out of thorns and placed it on his head, and clothed him in  a purple cloak, 
and they came to him and said,
"Hail, King of the Jews!"
And they struck him repeatedly.
                                       John 19:1-3

Come now, let us set things right, says the Lord:
Though your sins be like scarlet, 
they may become white as snow; 
Though they be red like crimson, they may become
white as wool.
                              Isaiah 1:18

Pilate said to them, "The guard is yours; 
go secure it as best
you can."  So they went and secured the tomb
by fixing a seal to the stone and setting the guard.
                                  Matthew 27:65-66

The Sorrowful Mysteries

Amen, amen, I say to you, you will weep and mourn, 
while the world rejoices; you will grieve, but your grief
will become joy.  So you also are now in anguish.  But I will
see you again, and your hearts will rejoice, and no one
will take your joy away from you.
