Motjari meeting April 18th, 2021 +Ave Cor Mariae
3rd Sunday of Easter. Paschal Mystery
Condolences for Vivianne, the beloved mom of Sophia Cha, and grandmother of the two Kong sisters. May the Lord be with you forever at your resting place.
Jesus appeared to disciples:
-Not a ghost - flesh and bone.
-Real body - he eats something.
-His body - the one he suffered with, marks on hands and feet.
-Glorified body- He came through the locked door. He can be at different places. He was radiant.
Jesus will never die again - big difference with other people in the Bible who got resuscitated.
The cross is very important for the paschal mystery. It is a symbol of triumph over death, and the cause of death, sin. It gives us the great fruit of the resurrection.
Jesus came back from the dead with his own will. Three people in the Bible came back from dead: Lazarus, the daughter of Zairus, and the widow’s son at Naim. They were resuscitated, not resurrected — they will die again, but not Jesus. Resurrection is not coming from this life. Resurrection is coming back to a new life.
Jesus has been shown to lots of people. On the way to Emmaus, Jesus revealed himself to Cleopas and one other unnamed disciple. These two did not recognize him until Jesus broke bread at their supper table.
Today’s Gospel Lk 24:35-48
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.”
Jesus did not come back to save lives. Jesus was not a ghost. Some of the Apostles thought Jesus was a ghost: then he let the touch his flesh and bones, his hands and feet, because they bore the nail wounds. They were marks of victory. He meant it is the same body he had, the same one that had been pierced by a soldier. He came out gloriously from the tomb.
Forgiveness of sins was the goal for Jesus’s suffering.
Parts of today’s reading (Acts 3:13-15, 17-19)
Now I know, brothers,
that you acted out of ignorance, just as your leaders did;
but God has thus brought to fulfillment
what he had announced beforehand
through the mouth of all the prophets,
that his Christ would suffer.
Repent, therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be wiped away.
The resurrection is real.
The disciples are not necessarily gullible people. Thomas was not there when Jesus first came to the Apostles. Jesus later showed him, made him poke his fingers in the wounds. The Apostles were then convinced by those things.
