3rd Sunday of Easter - B
“Touch Me and See”
The disciples knew Jesus both before and after his Passion and Resurrection.
But it was through meeting the Risen Christ that they received peace, joy, and courage to be his witnesses. Without that, they were “troubled” and “questions arose in their hearts.”
We do not know Jesus before his Passion and Resurrection (the “historical Jesus”). But we share the same privilege of with the disciples in meeting the Risen Christ in the community of believers, in his words of Scriptures, and in the breaking of the bread.
May we receive the same peace, joy, and courage in meeting the Risen Christ.
