Reflection April 30th

John 6:16-21   In the gospel, Jesus shatters an expectation and assumption when he comes to his disciples walking on the water. People do not walk on water! In this one gesture, Jesus is teaching us to accept what we deemed impossible. Jesus sets aside preconceived notions about life itself.

Reflection April 25th

St. Mark Mark 16:15-20   Jesus changes persecutors into proclaimers and doubters into disciples. This is how God works throughout the Scriptures. God takes the nothingness of darkness and chaos and creates a world. In the same way, the Risen Christ makes believers and messengers out of faithless people.
