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 20, 2019 - Black Saturday
Gospel: Lk 24:1-12
He is not here, but is risen! - Lk 24:6
When we miss someone we love or close to us, we miss the most their physical presence. In the gospel today, after Jesus died in the cross, he was buried and placed inside a tomb. However, his body cannot be found. Life is not bounded in the physical world and life doesn’t end with death. Jesus invites us to reflect on our lives and how we focus ourselves with the material things that satisfy us. He wants us to reflect how we can live our life with newness in our heart.
