Dear Friend in the Lord,

Resurrection Event – Faith: In today’s Gospel episode, Jesus our Risen Lord appeared to His disciples in different places, and sadly found that many lacked the faith in His Resurrection.  Ponder on, “However, many disciples eventually died as martyrs.  Let us pray for the grace of humility and wisdom to live our faith with greater fidelity, love and hope.”

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Mark 16:9-15

Having risen in the morning on the first day of the week, Jesus appeared first to Mary of Magdala from whom he had cast out seven devils. She then went to those who had been his companions, and who were mourning and in tears, and told them. But they did not believe her when they heard her say that he was alive and that she had seen him.

After this, he showed himself under another form to two of them as they were on their way into the country. These went back and told the others, who did not believe them either.

Lastly, he showed himself to the Eleven themselves while they were at table. He reproached them for their incredulity and obstinacy, because they had refused to believe those who had seen him after he had risen. And he said to them, ‘Go out to the whole world; proclaim the gospel to all creation.’
