After a rollercoaster-like experience with Jesus and most likely a little sleep deprivation, we’re reminded that the disciples were just like us … human.
No matter how sleep deprived, on edge or scared we might be today, Jesus has come to us! With His Word, and Body and Blood in the Eucharist, He brings joy and amazement to our lives!
When you get together with your family to pray, start your reflection time with these questions: Why do we feel so troubled deep inside? What are the questions in our hearts? Listen for Jesus to say, “Peace be with you.”
It’s been a blessing to share this time with you and your family today. May God always bless you.
