The presence of the risen Lord is everywhere

Posted in homily by frtonys on April 5, 2021

In today’s Gospel we hear how Mary Magdalene and “the other Mary, sister or cousin of Jesus’ mother, went to the tomb of Jesus early on Sunday morning. They were shocked at seeing an open tomb without Jesus’ body in it. As they ran back with fear and joy to report the news to the apostles, the risen Jesus greeted them and told them to tell the apostles that he would meet them in Galilee. The guards also, went to the chief priests to report the Resurrection of Jesus. But the Temple authorities bribed them to spread the false news that Jesus’ body had been stolen by his disciples.

The Resurrection of Christ is foundational of our Faith. It is the presence of the risen Lord everywhere that gives meaning to our worship and prayers, because Jesus is present everywhere to hear our prayers and grant our petitions.

The Risen Lord is present in the Holy Eucharist, in the praying assembly and in believing Christians, so we never need to lose contact with him. Let us renew this fundamental belief of our Faith every day and let us recognize and serve the risen Christ in everyone around us.
