God Comes to Us

Third Sunday in Easter, Acts of the Apostles Lesson, Year C
Scripture: Acts 9:1-6, (7-20)

Today we hear the story of Saint Paul’s conversion. Saul, as Saint Paul was known before this time, is traveling to go and hurt Christians. Jesus comes to him on the journey and confronts him and invites him to love instead of hurt. Jesus does this for each of us, inviting us to follow him.

Seeing Jesus

Third Sunday of Easter, Year B
Scripture: Luke 24:36b-48

Words tumble from the mouths of the excited disciples as they try to convey what happened on the road to Emmaus. In mid-sentence, they hear “Peace be with you.” Jesus is in their midst. Jesus encourages them to touch him and see that it is he. As they scramble to believe what they are seeing, Jesus casually asks them if, by any chance, they have anything to eat! They have broiled fish, which is shared all around.
