Third Sunday of Easter Fr. John Gerth

Through the blood of Jesus we have been delivered from the power of sin. We recognize him in the breaking of the bread, the one whom God raised from the dead and who now sits at his right hand forever.

My dear friends in Christ, last Sunday’s Gospel was the Gospel of the “Doubting” Thomas. This Sunday’s Gospel could be entitled the “Confused” Disciples. It was in the evening and two Disciples were walking, talking, questioning and generally being over-whelmed and confused on the road. Then Jesus started to walk with them. He explained the Scriptures, He ate with them and during the meal they recognized Him in the breaking of the break, the first Christian name for the Eucharist. Read Fr. John Gerth's message in its entirety in this week's bulletin.
