Thursday in Easter Week

Acts 3:11-26; Psalm 8:2,5-9; Luke 24:35-48

Yesterday the Gospel showed us Jesus revealing himself to us in the breaking of bread. Today, there are two more ways in which he does so - both through Word. He wishes us Peace - and he explained all the scriptures which related to himself.

The Mass rightly contains both these elements - the Word primarily through the liturgy of the word, but also in the Canon of the Mass. And the real presence of Jesus, which we receive directly following that moment when we all offer each other a sign of His peace.
