First Reading:Acts 2: 42 – 47

Responsorial Psalm: 118:2-4, 13-15, 22-24

Second Reading: 1 Peter 1:3-9

Gospel Reading: John 20:19 – 31

Reflection:It is Easter Season. The Risen Lord of Glory visits his disciples and greets them, “Peace be with you.” Peace is the precious gift Jesus gives to his disciples (of all times) who at this time are extremely destructed and disturbed with the whole experience of Good Friday. This gift brings to the disciples strength and courage of the new beginning in building up the kingdom of God. The disciples in the first reading are able to have all things in common and devote themselves to the teaching of the apostles. Peter in the second reading is able to say, “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who in his mercy gave us a new birth to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ…” We are Easter people! Fr.
