EASTER SUNDAY -C- April 21, 2019

Acts 10: 34a, 37-43; Ps. 118; Colossians 3: 1-4 (or I Cor 5: 6-8); John 20: 1-9

by Jude Siciliano, OP

 

Mini-reflections on the Sunday scripture readings designed for persons on the run. "Faith Book" is also brief enough to be posted in the Sunday parish bulletins people take home.

 

From today’s Gospel reading:

 

"Then the other disciple [the one whom Jesus loved] also went in,

The one who had arrived at the tomb first,

And he saw and believed."

 

Reflection:

 

With the "beloved disciple" we have been loved with a love that death cannot overcome. We have come to believe in the permanence of that love and trust that, neither sin nor even death, will separate us from it. We believe we are being held fast by that love–we have eternal life now, into death and beyond death.

 

So, we ask ourselves:

 

  • Have I had any recent concrete experience of Christ’s love for me?

  • How has that affected my outlook in times of loss and disappointment?
