“He said to them, ‘These are my words that I spoke to you
while I was still with you,
that everything written about me in the law of Moses
and in the prophets and psalms must be fulfilled.’
Then he opened their minds to understand the Scriptures.
And he said to them, ‘Thus it is written that the Christ would suffer
and rise from the dead on the third day
and that repentance, for the forgiveness of sins,
would be preached in his name to all the nations, beginning from Jerusalem.
You are witnesses of these things.’”
You, too, are, through the Scriptures, a witness to all that Jesus has done for you.
Reflect on times Jesus has helped you in any way in your life.
Carry your confidence and gratitude from those memories into your relationships today.
Heritage word—“How sensitive are you to those who are crushed under the weight of suffering and death?”
(Sister Mary Sujita, 9th Superior General of the Sisters of Notre Dame)
