Dear People of God,
May the Lord give you peace, joy, and health in the Risen Lord. Jesus is truly risen. Alleluia.
It is 18th April 2022.
We reflect on
Joyful fear is contagious and contains messages of truth, hope, and blessings. Women who were afraid yet filled with joy to encounter and experience the Risen Lord.
Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid; go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee; there they will see me.”
We are given the same assurance by the Mother Church that we will encounter the Risen Lord in the community, communion, and companionship with one another.
To experience we need faith that goes beyond, philosophy, philanthropy, and theology. It is not the bookish knowledge that sparks the experience but our initiative in taking risks amidst fear, and willingness to be transformed in meeting the Risen Christ.
Truth never can be modified by any power on earth. But sadly, every powerful person or institution attempts to bypass or suppress the truth. To Silence truth, people go to any extent and that is what we have in the Gospel today. May we discern the truth discreetly and deliver the truth timely. God bless you.
