Second Sunday of Easter
(The Resurrected Lord)
Acts 4:32-35 (Community of Believers)
: 1 John 5:1-6 (Begotten by God)
: John 20:19-31 (Peace be With You)
Question for Adults: Do my actions support or detract from my words?
This week’s readings focus on the presence of Christ in
the life of the disciples. The first reading tells of the life of the
early Christians and how it changed their way of behaving with one another.
No one had to guess who the Christians were amongst them. Their love
for one another was proof enough. In the second reading Paul
stresses the importance of faith in the presence of Christ even if they have
not seen with their own eyes. And lastly, the Gospel speaks of the
doubting Thomas. He is gently rebuked by Jesus for not believing without
This lesson here is that we, as Christians, are asked
to believe without having personally witnessed the Resurrection. We
are further asked to live our lives in accord with the teachings of Jesus.
In other words, we are asked to walk the walk in addition to talking the
talk. Words are easy for many people but living out the words is quite
This week we are asked to look at our behavior with respect
to people with whom we rub elbows. Do we send a mixed message with
our actions? We are often so used to our routine that we do not realize
how we come across. We need to allow ourselves some times to stop and
smell the roses. The “roses” may not smell as sweet as we think they
do. What about your “roses”?
Question for Children? Who has taught me about Jesus?
This is not meant to be a trick question. Neither is it meant to be
too simplistic. Of course children will say my teacher or my parents.
Challenge them to think of people who gives them good example throughout
their day. Perhaps they will see that even they are capable of
“teaching” others when they realize that teaching can and must be done by
example, not solely from a book. Try to bring your child to the point
of seeing that there are many people in their lives that have taught them
