Reflection for April 16, 2023

Keeping the faith

There are opportunities every day to be resurrection people 

by Sister Agnes Fischer

Happy are those who, without seeing, believe.

  • Those who, without seeing the Risen Christ, believe in the Resurrection.
  • Those who, without receiving the health results they have prayed for, continue to believe in the goodness and power of Christ.
  • Those who, despite the faults of many Christians, believe in the holiness of the Church.
  • Those who, while keeping vigil with the body of a deceased loved one, believe in the infinite mercy of God who will raise that beloved to eternal happiness.
  • Those who, without seeing Christ in the person of the priest, believe that, when he pardons them in confession, it is Christ who pardons.
  • Those who, without seeing Christ, believe that He is there in the exploited, the oppressed, the hungry, the imprisoned, those seeking justice, bread, compassion, and human warmth.

Thanks Aggie, good reflection. BTW, I love your new picture, You don't look a day older than 60.

One of my encouraging wise sentence--"hope is an action verb"

With your reflection, Sister Agnes, thank you. Some considerable thought.."belief" is an action verb.

Alleluia blessings to all.
