Third Sunday of Easter ~ April 15

Jesus asks the disciples in today’s gospel, and he asks us, "Why are you troubled?” We may want to respond, “Don’t you see the terrible things happening in our world?” Jesus responds to his disciples of every age, that suffering and hardship did not destroy him, nor will it destroy us. That means that as his disciples, we are not meant to stay in the upper room – that place of fear and confusion. Rather Jesus sends his disciples out into the world. Take with you today the message of Easter joy, the message that is for all people.w
