Friday in the Octave of Easter ‘b’


The disciples went back to their former way of living; they went fishing. I think they didn’t know what to do and where to go after Jesus’ death. Perhaps they lost their hope and faith in the resurrection. They didn’t expect to meet the Lord again. Before Jesus’ death and before His resurrection it was different -- they used to be with Him all the time, Now He visits them only occasionally and at the most unexpected times and in ways in which they can’t even recognize Him. So, they went back to their former ways of living, they went back to what was familiar to them, their homes, their jobs, and daily tasks. They placed Jesus in their past, forgetting that He is alive and will always be. How similar we are to those disciples -- for us, Easter is over. We rejoiced in celebrating the beautiful liturgies in our churches, the uplifting music, and stunning decorations, but this is in the past. Now, we are back to our daily tasks and obligations, nothing has changed. But even though we all had to return to our daily routines, we must be different, we must be transformed. Easter is not only the past, but the Resurrection is also not just history. Christ is alive today and now. He is present with us wherever we go, whatever we do. He wants to be with you, He wants to feed you with His love, His word, and His blessings. “Jesus came over and took the bread and gave it to them, and in like manner the fish.”
