Dear Friend in the Lord,

Risen Christ – His Presence: In today’s Gospel, Jesus the Risen Lord suddenly appeared to His disciples.  They were overwhelmed with joy because Jesus has Risen!  Ponder on, “As the Risen Christ ate grilled fish, His divinity preserved the dignity of humanityJesus’ Presence in our lives is an affirming Love that fills us with His divine mystery.

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Luke 24:36-43

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 rising in your hearts? Look at my hands and my feet; yes, it is I indeed. 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, and they stood there 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.
