Sabbath after Sabbath

Greetings on this the Friday of the Fourth Week of Easter
Readings: Acts 13:26-33; PS 2:6-7, 8-9, 10-11ab; Jn 14:1-6

In our first reading today Paul eviscerates the religious leadership for reading the oracles of the prophets sabbath after sabbath yet failing to recognize him in the scriptures.

The resurrection changed everything. It is the ultimate Sign of Moses.
And by change we mean the change from within, knowing:

  • The WAY we are.
  • The LIFE we live.
  • The TRUTH of our need.

It is by divine mercy and patience of the Lord that we are able to understand.

Jesus said to him, “I am the way and the truth and the life.
No one comes to the Father except through me.”

Jesus said to his disciples:
“Do not let your hearts be troubled.
You have faith in God; have faith also in me.

Passivity before the Lord brings conversion and new life.

Don’t fall into the emptiness of religiosity. Live life in the divine.

Peace be with you,
Deacon Gerry
