Bulletin Shorts for the Third Sunday of Easter

Third Sunday of Easter – 26 April 2020  

Acts 2:14, 22-33.  Psalm 16:1-2, 5, 7-8, 9-10, 1.  1 Peter 1:17-21. Luke 24:13-35.  

Mystagogy on the Emmaus Story.  (“Mystagogy” = to be led to, to encounter mystery.)  Two dejected disciples, abandoning Jerusalem, encounter Jesus in the Breaking of Bread.  With burning hearts, they return to the community of believers to recount this meeting. That is what Sunday Mass and Communion of Blood and Body does for us.  In returning week after week to the faithful believers, to our fellow parishioners, we meet the Risen Lord in the Body of Christ the Church.  

  • With what does my heart burn this Easter Day?  
  • Why do I keep coming to Sunday Mass and receiving Body and Blood?  
  • What will this sacred Meal strengthen me, impel me to do?
