FAITH BOOK

2nd SUNDAY OF EASTER (C) APRIL 28, 2019

(or SUNDAY OF DIVINE MERCY)

Acts 5: 12-16; Psalm 118; Rev 1:9-11a,12-13,17-19; John 20: 19-31

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:

 

Jesus said to Thomas, "Have you come to believe

Because you have seen me?

Blessed are those who have not seen and have believed."

 

Reflection:

 

How can we "prove" to others that Christ is risen from the dead? Our nourishment for that task comes from the Scriptures, preaching, teaching, personal witness, liturgical celebrations etc. – ways we can help a modern doubter like Thomas come to know Christ. Today’s passage affirms that people come to believe in the Risen Christ through their experience of the believing community, people like us.

 

So, we ask ourselves:

 

  • How does my life reflect the risen Christ?

  • What and who help me grow in my role as a witness to the resurrection?
