The Second Sunday of Easter
April 3, 2016
Year C

Themes: We bear witness to Jesus’ death and resurrection and tell everyone the good news (Acts 5:27-32). Like Thomas, we lay aside our doubts (Jn 20:19-31) and now anticipate his second coming (Rev 1:4-8). We will not die, but live and proclaim what the Lord has done (Ps. 118). 
Let everything that has breath praise the Lord! 
–Thomas Oden in Ancient Christian Devotional

Psalm of the Week

Commentary on John 20:19-31

"...but Christ still visits us and appears to us all, both invisibly as God and visibly in the body. He allows us to touch his holy flesh and gives it to us. For through the grace of God we are admitted to partake of the blessed Eucharist, receiving Christ into our hands, to the intent that we may firmly believe that he did in truth raise up the temple of his body."
-Cyril of Alexandria
