An Easter Reflection with A Community Of Working Adults

Posted: April 6, 2018 by CatholicJules in Life's Journeys, Personal Thoughts & Reflections

Today while we did the reflections for last Sunday’s readings we each brought something to share for a simple meal, while we shared our encounters with the Risen Lord. This reflection piece stuck with me as I recalled how Mary Mag went to share with Peter, then both He and John went to see for themselves…

Isn’t it beautiful to see that a Christian is, by definition, one that belongs to a community that experiences the resurrection together and not as individuals. As Paul proclaims (in the second reading), Christ is truly their life, their center, and it changes the way they relate to each other. They accept each other for who they are with all their strengths and weaknesses. This communion propels them to mission as we hear Peter proclaim boldly in today’s first reading. The resurrection generates a communion among them that transforms them from fearful followers to bold witnesses to the only truth that really matters – Christ is Risen!

Amen alleluia!
