The Risen Lord


Dear Parish Faithful and Friends in Christ,

Instead of a meditation this morning, I have attached a lengthier article that I prepared last year about the Resurrection of Christ. Most of you have probably already read it; but perhaps others have not. It has been somewhat revised and expanded. It is a more systematic presentation of the material that I presented in the homily yesterday on the Sunday of the Myrrhbearing Women: the interweaving of the three essential aspects of the Resurrection of Christ -

1) the empty tomb;
2) appearances of the Risen Lord to His disciples; and
3) the transformation of the disciples into bold apostles.

I always like to use this particular Sunday to remind ourselves of the historical dimension of the Lord’s Resurrection as presented in the four canonical Gospels.

Read The Risen Lord (PDF format, suitable for printing).

in Christ,
Fr Steven
