“On the evening of that first day of the week, when the doors were locked, where the disciples were, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in their midst and said to them, ‘Peace be with you.’
Place yourself in the room with the frightened apostles.
When have you felt fearful?
What must the disciples have experienced upon hearing Jesus say “Peace be with you”?
Heritage word—“At Pentecost new wine poured into the new wineskins of disciples made bold by the power of the Spirit. The apostles’ minds were transformed.”
(Sister Mary Kristin, 10th Superior General of the Sisters of Notre Dame)
