FAITH BOOK
EASTER SUNDAY (B) March 31, 2024

Acts 10: 34a, 37-43; Psalm 118;
Colossians 3: 1-4; John 20: 1-9

by Jude Siciliano, OP


Mini-reflections on the Sunday scripture readings designed for persons on the run. “Faith Book” is also brief enough to be posted in the Sunday parish bulletins people take home.

 

From today’s Gospel reading:


“Then the other disciple [the one Jesus loved] also went into the tomb,
the one who arrived at the tomb first, and he saw and believed.”


Reflection:


The disciple who believed was, we are told, the one Jesus loved. It is the awareness of being loved by Christ that puts fire into our prayer and zeal in our service, for we know the One who loves us will never let us down.


Jesus’ life, especially his passion and death, were signs of that love. He wanted his love to live in us so that we, like him, would also reflect God’s love to others.


So we ask ourselves:


When have I experienced new life spring up in a person or situation I thought was hopeless?
Where in my life do I feel dead and need to experience the risen Christ?
