Divine Mercy Sunday (2nd Sunday of Easter)

Where is the Lord?

John 20:19-31

Where is the risen Lord?

Jesus says, "Happy are those who have not seen and yet believe."

Jesus might not just be talking to Thomas but to all of us who have not seen him but totally believe in him.  If we truly believe in Jesus who rose from the dead:

1. we shall be enriched with the teachings of the apostles who are totally rooted in Jesus' teachings;
2. in the Holy Eucharist, by which every movement causes salvation;
3. in communion of mind and heart and in prayers, for Jesus commands us to "love one another as he has loved us."

and 4th, in the sharing of resources, knowing full well that life is not in receiving but in giving, as what Jesus did on the cross.

Ultimately, this is the peace the Jesus offers - peace in God and peace in the world.  Peace because we are doing what pleases God.  Then God's mercy will be upon us!
