EASTER SUNDAY (B) April 4, 2021

Acts 10: 34a, 37-43; Psalm 118; Colossians 3: 1-4; John 20: 1-9

Jude Siciliano, OP

 

From today’s Gospel reading:

 

Peter and the other disciple went out and came to the tomb.
They both ran, but the other disciple ran faster than Peter
and arrived at the tomb first.

 

Reflection:

 

What slowed Peter down?  Was it his memory of his abandonment before Jesus’ passion?  Was he burdened by the weight of the past? If Peter comes to faith in the resurrection, everything will change for him.  Before the risen Christ Peter will have to accept forgiveness.  It will be a gift, not something he earned, but something he must offer others – if he is to believe in the risen Lord. 

 

So, we ask ourselves: 

 

  • Is there something from our past that weighs us down?

  • What might the resurrected Jesus say about that burden?
