SUNDAY OF DIVINE MERCY - April 23th

REFLECTION ON TODAY’S READING: Thomas believed because he saw the risen Jesus. Although we have never seen him, we believe in him.  We give thanks to the Lord for this gift of faith, especially when we gather for the breaking of the bread and the prayers.      

 
 

 (Reflection on Sunday Gospel)

"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 again.”  

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!
