Sunday Gospel Reflection
April 28th – John 20: 19-31
Eight days later, Jesus came again and stood among them
Take a moment & reflect
– with Monsignor Robert Draper
We do not need to doubt that Luke is giving us an idealized picture of the first Christian community – but that doesn’t detract from its importance. What Luke shows us is a picture of a community that reflects the Lord – the “signs and wonders” are described in a way that recalls precisely the way that Jesus exercised his ministry. It is a deliberate way of showing continuity. In the power of the Spirit the church of the Acts of the Apostles continues Jesus’ work – and for us we would add, continues to do so in our day. That means of course that we should expect there to be clear reflections of Jesus’ ministry in the working of the church today. That is the great challenge to this and every generation of the faithful.
