A SNIPPET FROM THIS WEEK'S NEWSLETTER - WHERE DO WE MEET JESUS ?
After the resurrection, Jesus met Mary and the other
women in the garden near the tomb, Thomas and
the apostles in the locked upper room, the two
disciples on the roar to Emmaus and the aspostles by
the seashore. In each of these encounters, it took
some time for them for their eyes to be opened to
What are the triggers that help us to see and greet Jesus in our midst?
Reflections of Pope Francis on the Easter Story
Let the risen Jesus enter your life, welcome him as a friend, with trust: he
is life! If uptil now you have kept him at a distance, step forward. He will
receive you with open arms. If you have been indifferent, take a risk: you
won’t be disappointed. If following him seems difficult, don’t be afraid,
trust him, be confident that he is close to you, he is with you and he will
give you the peace you are looking for and the strength to live as he
would have you do ….
Ask the Lord to give a a share in his Resurrection. May he open us to the
newness that transforms, to the beautiful surprises of God. May he make
us men and women capable of remembering all that he has done in our
own lives and in the history of our world. May he help us to feel his
presence as the one who is alive and at work in our midst. And may he
teach us each day, dear brothers and sisters, not to look among the dead
for the Living One. Amen
