"Jesus I trust in you..."
"For the sake of your sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world. Jesus I trust in you..." ~ Divine Mercy
"Why did Jesus command His disciples to be silent about His identity as the anointed Son of God? They were, after-all, appointed to proclaim the good news to everyone. Jesus knew that they did not yet fully understand His mission and how He would accomplish it.
Cyril of Alexandria (376-444 AD), an early church father, explains the reason for this silence:
There were things yet unfulfilled which must also be included in their preaching about Him.
They must also proclaim the cross, the passion, and the death in the flesh.
They must preach the resurrection of the dead, that great and truly glorious sign by which testimony is borne Him that the Emmanuel is truly God and by nature the Son of God the Father.
He utterly abolished death and wiped out destruction.
He robbed hell, and overthrew the tyranny of the enemy.
He took away the sin of the world, opened the gates above to the dwellers upon earth, and united earth to heaven.
These things proved Him to be, as I said, in truth God. He commanded them, therefore, to guard the mystery by a seasonable silence until the whole plan of the dispensation should arrive at a suitable conclusion." (Commentary on Luke, Homily 49) ~ rc.net
