Third Sunday of Easter
Readings of the day: RB 61:1-5 Monastic Pilgrims from Far AwayMass: Ac 3:13-15, 17-19; Resp Ps 4; 1 Jn 2:1-5a; Lk 24:35-48  John Piper: Risen Christ at Emmaus   BUT WHOEVER KEEPS HIS WORD,THE LOVE OF GOD IS TRULY PERFECTED IN HIM.
The prayerful reading of God’s word, which is ‘sweeter than honey’ (Ps 119:103) yet a ‘two-edged sword (Heb 4:12) enables us to pause and listen to the voice of the Master. It becomes a lamp for our steps and a light for our path (cf. Ps 119:105). As the bishops of India have reminded us, ‘devotion to the word of God is not simply one of many devotions, beautiful but somewhat optional. It goes to the very heart and identity of Christian life. The word has power to transform our lives’.(Gaudete et Exsultate, 156)
LORD JESUS, OPEN THE SCRIPTURES TO US;MAKE OUR HEARTS BURN WHILE YOU SPEAK TO US.ALLELUIA.
How is the Word speaking to you today?
