REFLECTION ON TODAY’S READINGS Alleluia! He has Risen!!
Today’s Gospel captures the excitement of the apostles on that first Easter morning. It gives us also a glimpse into their new-found happiness as they hurried to spread the Good News. The joy of the apostles is meant to be our joy too. A new dimension should enter into our lives too for we also have been given this bright promise of everlasting life. Easter is about the joy of rebirth in the spirit of God and we don’t have to wait until the next life to enjoy it. Easter life isNOW. We rejoice as we realize that we are not walking the pathway of life alone. Christ is with us at every step of our life as our Saviour, our Redeemer, and our Healer.
