April 30: Third Sunday of Easter

1 Peter was written for Christians in Asia Minor whose acceptance of the Gospel alienated them from the society in which they lived. Peter (or a disciple of Peter’s) wants to bolster their faith and hope in God. He declares to them, for the time of their sojourning, what the two disciples in today’s Gospel learn on the road to Emmaus: that Jesus, whom God raised from the dead, sojourns with them even when discouragement prevents them from seeing him. It is Jesus who teaches the disciples bound for Emmaus how to read the Scriptures with reference to himself. And in Acts, Peter interprets Psalm 16 as referring to Jesus’ resurrection. Such appeals to the Jewish Scriptures characterized Christian teaching from the start. What is important for the modern reader to note, however, is that Scripture does not prove the resurrection of Jesus; rather reading the Scripture in this way presupposes faith in the risen Lord. It is only when they recognized Jesus in the breaking of bread that the disciples recalled how their hearts had burned when he, the risen Lord himself, had opened the Scriptures to them.

Fund Raising Drive for Children with Special Needs

The Saint Hedwig Knights of Columbus Council #7244 will conduct its annual fund raising drive for Children with Special Needs after all Masses this weekend, April 29th and April 30th, 2017. We ask for your continued support of this program to help us fund the various good works and contributions that this Council provides for children with special physical and medical needs. Your past generosity has gone a long way to help us meet our goals and pledges to several organizations that focus on the needs of these children. Please help if you can. Every little bit helps and goes a long way!

From Diary of St. Faustina

“When I see that the burden is beyond my strength, I do not consider or analyze it or probe into it, but I run like a child to the Heart of Jesus and say only one word to Him: “You can do all things.” And then I keep silent, because I know that Jesus Himself will intervene in the matter, and as for me, instead of tormenting myself, I use that time to love Him.”
(Diary 1033)
