Yes, it is Saints and Scriptures Sunday again. I love it. Ever so often I receive a message from Friar Jack's E-spirations, that I always enjoy. Since we had talked about this in Bible Study a couple of weeks ago I thought I would share part of his message.
We just celebrated the greatest feast of our faith- the Resurrection of Jesus on Easter Sunday - without the Resurrection there would be no Christianity. Jesus would be remembered as a wonderful man, even a prophet. But it is the Resurrection that is the ultimate proof that he is the Son of God. That makes his teachings and actions - and the Gospels themselves - truly divine revelation. He was, and is, indeed the "way, the truth and the life".
"He who believes in me will live forever" (John 11:25). You and I know in our hearts that we never believe in eternal life more than when someone dies. We know we will be together again some day. Heaven simply means complete and total union with the God. And we know enough about God from what Jesus told us to be able to reflect on eternal life.
Have a Blessed week and I'll see you next Sunday.
