THIRD SUNDAY OF EASTER
19th April 2015
From Fr Paul
CONSTANT CONVERSATIONS AND
EXPECTATION OF EXPERIENCE
In this Easter period we are caught up in the power of the risen Christ who offers himself to us in a totally new way to his previous earthly existence. We experience Christ, as the early Church did, in the breaking of bread and in His coming amongst us in our times of trouble saying “Peace be with you!” And we know it is the Lord because he bears the same wounds in his hands and feet and side: “Look at my hands and my feet; yes, it is I indeed. Touch me and see for yourselves; a ghost has no flesh and bones as you can see I have.” The risen Christ is in constant conversation with the frightened apostles in the early Church and the early Church experiences Christ in a new and mystical way, as we, ourselves, do today in 2015.
