Reflections of Faith
Read and be inspired by a reflection based on today's Gospel made by members of the Verbum Dei Family in Manila.
April 15, 2018/ Sunday
Gospel: Lk 24:35-48
“Peace be with you”
Just like the two disciples, do we doubt Jesus’ presence because we do not see Him physically? How and where do you see Him?
The two disciples were more focused on His death, rather than His Rising. Like us, when overcome with emotions and blinded by rage, or negative thoughts, we fail to see Jesus in what’s happening in the world around us. Shackled by anger and hatred? Do we feel the hopelessness rather than the hope?
Let us allow Jesus teach us to recognize him, let us open our hearts even in the worst situations. Read the scriptures to know Him more, so the ups and downs of our journey are cushioned, and the humps and detours are easier to handle.
