“On the evening of the 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 behind the locked doors with Mary and the fear-ridden apostles.
Is your fear heightened or dispelled as Jesus enters the room?
What does that tell you?
Heritage word—“We must wait and see from where the wind is blowing
and put all our trust in the Lord.”
(St. Julie Billiart, Spiritual Mother of the Sisters of Notre Dame)
