Message from Pastor:

    

THIRD SUNDAY OF EASTER

Fear is one of the most common of all emotions. We all fall into its grasp from time to time. It can be very real and even cause us to freeze up and not act as we should. The disciples certainly experienced this when Christ appeared in their midst as they were listening to the two disciples [recount] what had taken place on the way.  

 

The risen Christ came, offering them reassurance and peace. It is one thing to hear a story about Christ’s post-resurrection appearance, it is another to see it with your own eyes. The evangelist does not hold back in describing their fear – even their incredulity. They see Jesus but they immediately think it might be a ghost or a hallucination.

 

But Jesus will not allow that fear to have the last word. Reassuring them of his real, actual presence, he proves it by the most common of all actions: He invites them to look at his hands and feet, and to touch him so they will sense the reality of flesh and bones, which a ghost does not have. And then eats in front of them – something else a ghost would not do. But more than just ameliorating the disciples’ fear, Jesus presence has a triple purpose: to prove his resurrection, to help them understand the fulfilled Scriptures, and to prepare them for their mission before the world.

 

Jesus calls them witnesses – martyrs in Greek – disciples who give all to proclaim the risen Christ. Peter becomes one of the great examples of this change. In our first reading, we saw a different Peter from the Good Friday man who denied Jesus three times. Filled with the truth of the Resurrection and the power of the Spirit, he is the very opposite of fearful. Now he has the courage to stand before those who condemned Jesus – to proclaim him as the fulfillment of the prophetic promises and to call all to repentance. Saint John matches this powerful message with a reminder to his community of the immensity of Jesus’ forgiveness.

 

So what about us? It is easy in our broken humanity to allow fear and doubt to control us. Yet they must never have the last word: Christ always finds a way to reassure us of the truth and reality of the Resurrection, and its offer of life. As believers, we find that reassurance in the sacramental and liturgical life of the Church where the Scriptures are proclaimed and the Spirit is at work. Here we encounter Christ. Here he takes away our fears and doubts and frees us to go out and share the Good News. Jesus has conquered sin and death. The reign of fear is over.
