DICIPLESHIP – THE CHALLENGE AWAITS

In today’s intriguing gospel story we see the apostles returning to their previous occupations.  The hype and excitement of the Resurrection of Jesus is beginning to wane with the passage of time.  Without the actual physical presence and guidance of Jesus to encourage and motivate them, they were struggling.  It was as if they needed constant “privileged movements” to remind them of Jesus.

Easter is now behind us and we too are beginning to drift back into our usual practices and routines.  However, we must try not to lose sight of the event we have just celebrated and its importance and significance in our lives.  The Resurrection is the basis of our belief and our salvation.  If we are disciples of Jesus, if we are to proclaim His message, we must do so fearlessly.  Jesus must be at the centre of our lives and our discipleship calls us to witness to our faith not only consistently but courageously.  It is only by sharing in the suffering of Jesus that we also share in His glory.

“You believe because you can see me.  Happy are those who have not seen me and yet believe”.


BANK HOLIDAY

Tomorrow, Monday 2nd, is a Bank Holiday and there will only be one Mass at 10.00am.


VOCATIONS SUNDAY

Next Sunday, 8th May, is a day of prayer for Vocations.  There will be an exit collection after all Masses to help support Vocations in our Diocese.


SEEING YOUR LIFE THROUGH THE LENS OF THE GOSPEL

John 21:1-19

The disciples spend a fruitless night fishing and catching nothing.  Things change dramatically when Jesus appears and invites them to try again.    Remember those who came to you and encouraged you to try again when you felt discouraged.  Perhaps on some of these occasions the results were beyond your expectations.

Some people view the synodal process proposed by Pope Francis as a futile exercise, and others see it as an opportunity for renewal and growth.  What have you seen or heard that encourages you to engage in the process?

The story can serve as a reminder that sometimes we are wasting our time if we try to work on our own without the Lord’s help.  When have you found that your work or life was more fruitful when you acknowledged that you needed God’s help and you spoke to God about your need?

Peter is given the chance to be fully reconciled with his Master after his denial during the Passion.  Remember those who have given you an opportunity for reconciliation after you had hurt them or let them down.  What was it like for you to be given this chance?  To whom have you offered the possibility of reconciliation?
