How to Recognize Jesus Before the Big Reveal (#724, First Communion)

Fr. Joel Homilies 1 Comment

Third Sunday of Easter (Year A) • We are on a pilgrimage to our Heavenly homeland, the New Jerusalem. At the end of our journey we will recognize Jesus — and realize He has been walking with us all along.

How can we recognize Jesus before the “big reveal”? We find Him at your local Catholic church, in the reading of the Scriptures and the breaking of the bread. Sunday Mass teaches us to hear and see Jesus.

Mass also transforms us into the presence of Jesus. Once you have seen and heard Jesus, You must begin to reveal Jesus to others. The Body of Christ? AMEN

(30 April 2017)

Point to Ponder: Where have you seen Jesus lately?

Point to Discuss: Read Revelation 21 with your family or friends. Talk to each other about what heaven will be like.

Point for Action: How can you reveal presence of Jesus to someone today?

  1. I liked how you saw Jesus in the little girl’s hi. I especially liked when you asked yourself what God wanted to tell you in this encounter – which was that you are supposed to hold onto your Father’s hand. It gives me a whole new dimension when I encounter Jesus. I will have to ask myself what God wants me to learn from this encounter.
