Sunday Reflection – 14 April 2024

Third Sunday of Easter

Also Read: Mass Readings for 14 April 2024 Homily for 14 April 2024 – Sunday

First Reading: Acts 3: 13-15, 17-19

“…you killed the Author of life, whom God raised from the dead. To this we are witnesses.” (15)

St. Peter admonishes the people and straight away tells them their folly. Their only resort is to repent for their sins. Let us take St. Peter’s words to heart and immediately amend our ways.

In Jesus’ name, Amen, Alleluia!

Responsorial Psalm: Psalms 4: 2, 4, 7-9

When you are disturbed, do not sin; ponder it on your beds, and be silent. (4)

I will both lie down and sleep in peace; for you alone, O Lord, make me lie down in safety. (8)

Alleluia, Amen!

Second Reading: First John 2: 1-5a

“…but whoever obeys his word, truly in this person the love of God has reached perfection. By this we may be sure that we are in him. (5)

The two commandments that the LORD has given us are we Love God with all our heart, soul, and mind and to love our neighbour as ourselves. (Mt. 22: 36-40) We can measure ourselves against these commandments and know how true we are in discipleship to Christ. Although tough, we must strive to follow the commandments of the Lord! He has sent us the Holy Spirit to guide us on our way.

In Jesus’ name, Amen! Alleluia!

Alleluia: Luke 24: 32

They said to each other, “Were not our hearts burning within us while he was talking to us on the road, while he was opening the scriptures to us?”

Alleluia! Alleluia!

Gospel: Luke 24: 35-48

Then he opened their minds to understand the scriptures. (45)

Our resurrected Lord Jesus Christ bears the scars of our sins in his body even today! We must remember this great mystery whenever we are tempted to forsake the truth!

We ask our Lord Jesus Christ to open our minds to the scriptures daily as we tread the narrow way of this world. We have been clothed with power from on high, that is the Holy Spirit. Therefore we must walk in victory in Jesus’ name, Amen!
