We Have Seen the Lord!

we-have-seen-the-lordThe gospel writer John reports that Christ came to his disciples on the evening of his resurrection, passing through the doors locked tight by fear. Jesus gave them his peace, breathed the new life of the Holy Spirit into them, and sent them out in witness and mission, “We have seen the Lord!” The resurrected Christ comes to us, gives us his peace, and then sends us out in witness and mission, “We have seen the Lord.” Christ gives us what we need so that seeing is believing becomes believing is seeing and then sends us out to invite others to encounter the risen Christ in Word and Meal.
