The Way of Light

Reflections on the Resurrection by Leo John Dehon, SCJ

The Way of Light are one-minute reflections on the Resurrection from the words of our founder, Fr. Leo John Dehon. These are sent by email from the Dehonian Associates Office on Tuesdays and Thursdays throughout the Easter season. Click here to subscribe.

The first reflection was sent April 18 and focuses on Matthew 28:1-6:

“After the sabbath, as the first day of the week was dawning, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to the tomb.” 

Let us imitate the eagerness and confidence of the holy women. They prepare their perfumes and went to the sepulcher, trusting in God’s help to open it for them. Let us do all that we can to please God and place all our trust in him. God will provide for the needs of our soul.

Fr. Leo John Dehon, “Daily Notes,” April 16, 1868
