Third Sunday of Easter

Luke 24:35-48

The disciples were overwhelmed by his presence among them, almost to the point of disbelief. Jesus confirmed his presence among them by joining in their common meal and by opening their minds to the meaning of the scriptures. Christ’s Church is where he is present in his people’s faith, hope, and love. Its doors are open to all who will enter. Our mission is to help make him known to the whole world. The Christian community would never have expanded beyond Jerusalem if the disciples had not cast off their fears and worries. Let us take a closer look at how we may be worrying our lives away and missing out on the joy of trusting Jesus to makes us his witnesses to all the world.
