Dear Friend in the Lord,

Obeying Jesus’ Wisdom”: In today’s Gospel, Peter and his disciples obeyed Jesus the Risen Lord’s instructions, and caught a huge catch of fish.  Ponder on, “If we are humble, we will recognise our human limitations; and we will seek, listen and obey Jesus’ Words of Wisdom.  He will enlighten and empower us to live our lives with His deep Peace, Joy and Fulfilment.”

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Luke 24:36-44

The disciples were still talking about all this when Jesus himself stood among them and said to them, ‘Peace be with you!’ In a state of alarm and fright, they thought they were seeing a ghost. But he said, ‘Why are you so agitated, and why are these doubts stirring in your hearts? See by my hands and my feet that it is I myself. Touch me and see for yourselves; a ghost has no flesh and bones as you can see I have.’

And as he said this he showed them his hands and his feet. Their joy was so great that they still could not believe it, as they were dumbfounded; so he said to them, ‘Have you anything here to eat?’ And they offered him a piece of grilled fish, which he took and ate before their eyes. Then he told them, ‘This is what I meant when I said, while I was still with you, that everything written about me in the Law of Moses, in the Prophets and in the Psalms, was destined to be fulfilled.’
