April 6th, 2013-Easter Saturday

On this Easter Saturday we continue onward with our 50 days of Easter Joy!  This evening we enter into a time of preparing for tomorrow, the Second Sunday of Easter, Divine Mercy Sunday.  The holy Gospel is from John 20:19-31, the story of 'doubting Thomas.'

Sit with the Word of God for awhile.

Consider how the resurrected Jesus appears to the disciples in the locked room proclaiming 'Peace be with you.'  Now Thomas was out at the time and he is adament that he will not believe their reports of his appearance unless he is able to put his hand in his side.  A week later the Lord appears again this time with Thomas present.

Can you remember the rest of the scripture passage? 

To prepare for Mass tomorrow the readings may be located at: www.usccb.org.  Monthly subscription publications such as Magnificat are also a reliable source of spiritual enrichment providing the daily readings along with reflections and supplements for Liturgical Seasons.  The art work highlighted is a source of inspiration.  www.magnificat.com

Prayers continue for visitors to www.reclaimsunday.net.  The true meaning of Sunday is meant for a day of joy!  It is the day of ressurection.  How are you able to enter into Sunday more completely as a day of rest and worship? 

Peace!

I haven't perfected my Sundays yet -- but I do refrain from at least laundry and cleaning. I do try to find something special to eat, too. Working on it!

Studying in Jerusalem several years ago, I was very moved by the power the Sabbath has to reclaim and rejuvenate lives of believers, a time for complete rest.
