Thoughts for the Weekend:
Saturday's Gospel (Mark 16: 9-15) tells us how Jesus appeared to his followers.
When Jesus had risen, early on the first day of the week,
he appeared first to Mary Magdalene,
out of whom he had driven seven demons.
She went and told his companions who were mourning and weeping.
When they heard that he was alive
and had been seen by her, they did not believe.
After this he appeared in another form
to two of them walking along on their way to the country.
They returned and told the others;
but they did not believe them either.
But later, as the Eleven were at table, he appeared to them
and rebuked them for their unbelief and hardness of heart
because they had not believed those
who saw him after he had been raised.
He said to them,
“Go into the whole world
and proclaim the Gospel to every creature.”
If you were to see Jesus today in the very flesh, would you believe it? Or would you think it's a vision? Or your eyes playing tricks?
This week, reflect on your confidence in your faith and in God and what you would do if you had the chance to see Jesus in this very moment.
The staff of St. Francis would like to wish you and your families a blessed and happy Easter Season!
