A BLESSED EASTER
THIRD SUNDAY OF EASTER
April 15, 2018
WE ARE WAGERS OF PEACE
We are in the Easter season. The readings are focused on the resurrection of Christ.
The First Reading reminds that God, the Father raised Jesus up from the dead. We should not be mistaken again about the truth of Jesus.
The Second Reading attributes salvation from sin through Jesus (presupposed by the author to have resurrected). We must be interested in knowing more about Jesus.
The Gospel Reading portrays Jesus’ efforts to prove his resurrection to the incredulous disciples who could not switch right away from mourning to joyful celebration of a new life. The new life of Jesus brings new assignment to the believers
