Scripture:

Acts 13:44-52
John 14:1-6

Reflection:

As we make our way through the manifold unfoldings of the Easter event, we continue to encounter the numerous ways in which God reveals Himself by the gifts He bestows on us.  In times past we may have preferred to speak of God’s infinity as a way of manifesting our perception of the rich potential residing in Him.  At present we prefer to approach the overflowing abundance within God in terms of the many gifts He bestows on us.

PEACE IN BOLDNESS

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. John 14:27    A wise person once said that sadness looks to the past, and fear to the future, but faith to the present.    Christ is the Prince of Peace.  His peace extends to our past, present, and future.

Reflection:

"…who was I to be able to hinder God?"
"No one takes it from me, but I lay it down on my own."

  

It seems to me that, underlying everything, we have one important choice to make that will inform almost everything that comes after.

 Scripture:

Acts 2:14a, 36-41
1 Peter 2:20b-25
John 10:1-10

 Reflection:

At this moment of the Easter season the question to us is do we hear the voice of the true shepherd? Do we hear Jesus calling us by name? Do we see him walking ahead of us? Do we follow him? Do we realize that only he is the gate to God’s blessings? Have we come to know that he leads us to green pastures and restful waters?  Yes, he spreads the table before us, anoints our head with fragrant oil, and our cup overflows.

Fine, I’ll admit it. I have always been a skeptic of so-called "miracles." Marian apparitions: I’m skeptical. Unexplained recoveries from illnesses: I’m skeptical. Destiny/fate: I’m skeptical. Yeah, go ahead and say it, "You are a scrooge!"
