Praise and glory to you, Lord Jesus Christ who still comes to us in our sins and ignorance (Acts 3:17), doubts and incredulity (Luke 24:37), even disbelief or unbelief. Like the psalmist today, we sing of your glory: "O Lord, our God, how glorious is your name over all the earth! What is man that you should be mindful of him, or the son of man that you would care for him?" (Psalm 8:2) that you never stop coming to us to call and send us, to forgive and convince us of your love!
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.”Luke 24:38-39
Dearest Lord Jesus, let us come closer to you to know you better, to love you truly, and to follow you closely so we may share you with others and be your loving presence especially among the unloved and neglected, to be the extensions of your healing hands to the sick and old, and most especially, your gift of peace. Amen.
