Third Sunday of Easter
Luke 24:35-48
Our life with God is a balance between contemplation and action, but the contemplation comes first. Then there is the purification process through suffering and the cross. Only then can we be authentic witnesses. We need enthusiasm and courage to preach and live the good news. We have been given our charge, our mandate, it is quite clear! We began this story with “Come follow me.” We end with “Go into the whole world and tell the good news.”
