The 3rd Sunday of Easter

May 5, 2019

This week we celebrate the Third Sunday of Easter. The Easter journey of faith continues – where are we in our gratefulness for the gift of Jesus? The Apostles were uncertain in the Gospel and returned to their “old” way of life – fishing - until the Risen Lord appeared to them on the shore and wanted to share breakfast with them.  Jesus gave them the mission to share the message of “Feed my sheep” to all that they met.  They went out and were filled with overwhelming joy spreading the message of Jesus to all. 

Do we have that JOY within us as we live our lives and try to share with family, friends, and co-workers the message that Jesus gave the Apostles long ago – “feed my sheep?”  How do we do it?  Why do we want to do it?  The Eucharist fills us and calls us to go forth from the celebration of Mass and share the “Good News” with the modern day “sheep” within our lives.  Are we willing to be apostles today?  Take time to reflect…
