(Reflection on Sunday
"Unless I see - I will not believe"
Do you know the joy of the resurrection?
The Risen Lord Jesus revealed the glory of his resurrection to his
disciples gradually and over a period of time. Even after the
apostles saw the empty tomb and heard the reports of Jesus'
appearance to the women, they were still weak in faith and fearful
of being arrested by the Jewish authorities. When Jesus appeared to
them he offered proofs of his resurrection by showing them the
wounds of his passion, his pierced hands and side. He calmed their
fears and brought them peace, the peace which reconciles sinners and
makes us friends of God.
LIVING CATHOLIC IN THE 808
What does Easter means to me By: Msgr. John Mbinda, St. John
Apostle and Evangelist, Mililani
After the resurrection, those who encounter the Risen Lord are so
deeply touched that they cannot be the same again. The resurrection
therefore is the center Living Catholic in the 808 Continuation:
piece of Christian faith. St. Paul underlines this point when he
writes, “If Jesus is not raised from the dead, our preaching is in
vain and we are the most pitiable men.” (1 Cor 15:14) Easter is not
an historical commemoration but a way of life that we celebrate on
Easter Vigil and thereafter every day and every Sunday throughout
the year at Holy Mass.
In the movie Risen, the Roman Tribune Clavius, on assignment to find
the body of Jesus goes all the way to Galilee where the Risen Lord
appears several times. In the end, after witnessing the Ascension,
he is completely changed and affirms “I can no longer be the same
No one encounters the Risen Lord and remains the same. The Joy of
Easter as a way of life is transformative - for everyone who has
been deeply touched by the Risen Lord. Our Easter faith renders us
to be powerful instruments of evangelization. Like the first eye
witnesses, we are so filled with the joy of the resurrection that we
cannot but share the joyful news. Christ is risen!
