Today is called the Second Sunday of Easter, not the First Sunday after Easter. Our celebration of Easter is not over. These Sundays of Easter continue to present the mystery of Jesus Christ s victory. The readings begin with the signs and wonders abounding in those earliest days. Sick people lay in the street, hoping that at least Peter s shadow might fall on one or another of them. Then, in a powerful passage from the book of Revelation, the visionary falls down as though dead upon seeing the victorious Christ. But Christ extends a gentle touch: Do not be afraid... once I was dead, but now I am alive forever. In the Gospel, that same Christ appears and breathes on the disciples, and gently leads Thomas to believe. This Christ more powerful than any evil force, victorious over death itself touches us and whispers, Do not be afraid. Copyright J. S. Paluch Co.
