The Bible: Codex Sinaiticus

The world's earliest Bible and oldest manuscript of the same gospels, circa the mid-fourth century can be read online at www.codexsinaiticus.org. According to a recent article in The Economist, the various sections of the original manuscript can be found in four different locations--at the British Library in London, the University of Leipzig, the National Library of Russia in St. Petersburg, and the ancient monastery of St. Catherine's on the slopes of Mount Sinai, which is the Bible's original home.--The Economist, July 18, 2009, Books and arts, page 82.

22 April 2009: This Easter day

"This Easter day is a great day of joy and glory.
I love Jesus in this luminous glory, and how I love his Mother too. All the bells were decorated with flowers, there was great happiness. It was a day of love, the day when everything was done according to God’s wishes. The entire earth was united.
She said to me: 'May this feast of Easter bring joy to my children. Tell them that I do not forget them, that I wait for them to come before me. Tell them that if they ask me, I will always come to help them.' She asks her children on earth to love her divine Son, console his Heart and cease to persecute him.
She said to me: 'I love them so much!' And I saw all her affection, tenderness and maternal love for all her children of the universe. She carried for each one a gift, a look, a blessing. I saw with my own eyes inexhaustible treasures of grace.
I saw her carrying to each one in particular a special blessing, with many graces to help them in their weakness, warm their hearts, and bring back life to their souls."
