“Peace, Purpose and Power: Gifts of the Resurrected Jesus!”
In today’s gospel the risen Christ appears to the disciples and offers them the gift of peace. Even amid doubts and questions, we experience the resurrection in our Sunday gathering around word and meal, and in our everyday lives. Throughout the coming Sundays of Easter the first two readings will be from the Acts of the Apostles and the first letter of Peter. Even as the early Christians proclaimed the resurrection, we rejoice in the new birth and living hope we receive in baptism.
Listen Here to the Gospel of John 20:19-31 and the sermon for this Second Sunday of Easter.
