Friday: from the archives
I’ve been trying to imagine what it was like for Jesus’ friends shortly after the Resurrection. As word spread of His appearances to this one and that one, they must have wondered to whom and where He would appear next. And would they recognize Him when He did–since so many of them failed to recognize Him at first glance? Thinking about this led me to ponder my own life and take stock of how great my own expectation is of His “appearing” to me in my daily life. How often do I not recognize Him when He is present to me? Come, Holy Spirit, and open our eyes to recognize Christ where He is in our lives.
