There's More in the Sunday Gospel than Meets the Eye for April 15, 2018

Listen to this week's edition of our reflections on the Gospel reading for April 15, 2018 which speaks of the encounter of the risen Jesus with the disciples, prepared by Jill Bevilacqua.

In this week's edition of "There's More in the Sunday Gospel than Meets the Eye, Jill Bevilacqua and Sean Patrick Lovett bring us readings and reflections from the Gospel of St. Luke 24:35-48.

Listen to our Sunday reflections

The two disciples recounted what had taken place on the way,
and how Jesus was made known to them 
in the breaking of bread.

While they were still speaking about this,
he stood in their midst and said to them,
"Peace be with you."
But they were startled and terrified
and thought that they were seeing a ghost.
Then he said to them, "Why are you troubled?
And why do questions arise in your hearts?
Look at my hands and my feet, that it is I myself.
Touch me and see, because a ghost does not have flesh and bones
as you can see I have."
And as he said this,
he showed them his hands and his feet.
While they were still incredulous for joy and were amazed,
he asked them, "Have you anything here to eat?"
They gave him a piece of baked fish; 
he took it and ate it in front of them.

He said to them,
"These are my words that I spoke to you while I was still with you,
that everything written about me in the law of Moses
and in the prophets and psalms must be fulfilled."
Then he opened their minds to understand the Scriptures.
And he said to them,
"Thus it is written that the Christ would suffer
and rise from the dead on the third day
and that repentance, for the forgiveness of sins,
would be preached in his name
to all the nations, beginning from Jerusalem.
You are witnesses of these things."
