Second Sunday of Easter, April 3, 2016
Reading 1 Acts 5:12-16
During the Easter season, the first reading each Sunday is
taken from the Acts of the Apostles. This book of the New
Testament is like no other. It gives us a beautiful description
of the early Church community as it grew. Filled with the
Spirit of the risen Christ, the disciples brought the healing
love of Jesus to those in need. In doing this, they carried on
his mission.
Discussion Questions for Reading 1
Just like the early Church, we are called to carry on
the mission of Jesus. We can do this only when we
grow in the knowledge and experience of the risen
Christ in our lives. How can you use the Easter season to do this?
For those newly baptized or received into the
Church, Eastertime is the time of mystagogia. This
means "learning about the mysteries" of our faith.
Pray for the new members of the Church, that they
may grow into strong branches on the vine of Christ.
How can you learn more about your faith during this
Easter season?
his surroundings--tells us that he is a very special person? You
might like to ask someone to read this passage again slowly.
Then draw the seven gold lampstands with Jesus standing
among them. Try to capture the richness of this scene. What is
the difference between this image and the image we see in a
crucifix? Why do we need both images to understand who Jesus is? What is the difference between Jesus and an imaginary
action hero? Pray together: Lord Jesus Christ, be the First and
the Last and the One who is my life. Give me the courage to
proclaim you. Help me to overcome my fears by knowing you
are with me each moment of the day and night. Amen.
What do you think are some of these "higher things" we
are urged to set our hearts on? How can you do this?
Gospel Reflection John 20:19-31
John's account of that first Easter night is filled with
drama. Jesus appears through locked doors and
gives his disciples his peace. He gives them the gift
of the Holy Spirit and communicates God's power of
forgiveness. Thomas, who misses out on this experience of Jesus, refuses to believe unless he can
touch Jesus' wounds. A week later he has a chance
to do just that! Thomas exclaims, "My Lord and my
God!" And Jesus tells us how "blest" are we who
Reading 2 Revelations 1:9-11a, 12-13, 17-19
Today's reading sounds a little different, doesn't it? It is filled have believed in his resurrection without having
with special symbols that were used to bring hope to the early seen his risen body.
Christians during a time of persecution. When we hear the
words of the reading, we are filled with the hope of Easter, too. Discussion Questions for Gospel
Jesus tells us, "Do not be afraid." Christ has conquered death. Thomas is remembered in the Church as "doubting Thomas."
He is truly "the one who lives" forever.
Yet, Jesus respected his doubts, and answered them in a beautiful way. Thomas did not keep his doubts to himself. He shared
them with the community and with Jesus. What can you do
Discussion Questions for Reading 2
We all know what an action hero with special powers in a mov- when you have a doubt or a question about something?
ie or a TV show looks like. Often he wears special clothes, like Thomas' response to Jesus is a beautiful prayer of faith and
a cape or special armor. Laser beams dart from his eyes. Spe- praise: "My Lord and my God!" Pray this prayer the next time
cial shoes or boots help him to fly. Reread the passage from you receive holy communion. Remember that your Lord and
John. What in the description of Jesus--his voice, his clothing, God is with you. What are some other ways you can pray this

¿Qué te ayudará a tener fe? Las lecturas bíblicas de
hoy hablan de la fe y de la duda. Se “escribieron…
para que ustedes crean”, como nos dice hoy el pasaje
del Evangelio de san Juan (20:31). Tiene esto una cierta urgencia. En este Segundo Domingo de Pascua se
nos lanza un desafío a unirnos a la comunidad de creyentes –un sinnúmero de hombres y mujeres que dan
testimonio del poder de la fe de los Apóstoles.
No hay duda que este poder viene de Jesucristo. La
segunda lectura, del libro del Apocalipsis, relata la visión mística de Juan sobre el Hijo del Hombre, el cual
proclama: “Estuve muerto y de nuevo soy el que vive” (Apocalipsis 1:18). El Evangelio reúne a todos
excepto a Tomás para ver a Jesús resucitado y recibir
de él el Espíritu Santo. Al igual que Tomás, los que
hemos llegado más tarde debemos tener fe para poder
tener vida.

La Iglesia católica es universal, extendida en diversas
naciones y culturas. A través de los siglos estas culturas han enriquecido la Tradición de la Iglesia con muchas tradiciones y devociones que van más allá de su
cultura de origen. La fiesta de la Divina Misericordia
es un buen ejemplo. Viene de una devoción que nació
en Polonia con la Hermana Faustina Kowalska (19051938) canonizada en el 2000. La devoción a la Divina
Misericordia se celebra el Segundo Domingo de Pascua y durante todo el año orando la Coronilla de la
Divina Misericordia. En latinoamérica se ha ido extendiendo esta devoción desde 1978 cuando fue aprobada por el Papa Paulo VI. En todas partes se puede
encontrar la imagen de la Divina Misericordia, Jesús
de pie con rayos rojos y blanco-azules que brillan desde su corazón hacia el mundo. Lleva el lema: Jesús,
confío en ti.
La finalidad de esta devoción es recordar al pecador que la misericordia de Dios es infinita e inagotable. Es una misericordia que debemos imitar para que
la paz pueda reinar en nuestros corazones y en nuestra

Primera lectura
Lectura del libro de los Hechos de los apóstoles
Los apóstoles hacían muchos signos y prodigios en
medio del pueblo. Los fieles se reunían de común
acuerdo en el pórtico de Salomón; los demás no se
atrevían a juntárseles, aunque la gente se hacia lenguas de ellos; más aún, crecía el número de los
creyentes, hombres y mujeres, que se adherían al Señor. La gente sacaba los enfermos a la calle, y los
ponía en catres y camillas, para que, al pasar Pedro, su
sombra, por lo menos, cayera sobre alguno. Mucha
gente de los alrededores acudía a Jerusalén, llevando a
enfermos y poseídos de espíritu inmundo, y todos se
Sal 117,2-4.22-24.25-27a
R/. Dad gracias al Señor porque es bueno, porque es eterna
su misericordia
Diga la casa de Israel:
eterna es su misericordia.
Diga la casa de Aarón:
eterna es su misericordia.
Digan los fieles del Señor:
eterna es su misericordia. R/.
La piedra que desecharon los arquitectos
es ahora la piedra angular
Es el Señor quien lo ha hecho,
ha sido un milagro patente.
Éste es el día en que actuó el Señor:
sea nuestra alegría y nuestro gozo. R/.
Señor, danos la salvación;
Señor, danos prosperidad.
Bendito el que viene en nombre del Señor,
os bendecimos desde la casa del Señor;
el Señor es Dios, él nos ilumina. R/.
Si de veras quieres ayudar el alma de tu prójimo, debes primero acercarte a Dios con todo tu corazón. Simplemente pide a Dios que te llene de caridad. . . con ella podrás lograr lo que deseas.

Segunda lectura
Lectura del libro del Apocalipsis (1,9-11a.12-13.17-19):
Yo, Juan, vuestro hermano y compañero en la tribulación,
en el reino y en la constancia en Jesús, estaba desterrado en
la isla de Patmos, por haber predicado la palabra, Dios, y
haber dado testimonio de Jesús. Un domingo caí en éxtasis
y oí a mis espaldas una voz potente que decía: «Lo que
veas escríbelo en un libro, y envíaselo a las siete Iglesias
de Asia.» Me volví a ver quién me hablaba, y, al volverme,
vi siete candelabros de oro, y en medio de ellos una figura
humana, vestida de larga túnica, con un cinturón de oro a
la altura del pecho. Al verlo, caí a sus pies como muerto.
Él puso la mano derecha sobre mí y dijo: «No temas: Yo
soy el primero y el último, yo soy el que vive. Estaba
muerto y, ya ves, vivo por los siglos de los siglos, y tengo
las llaves de la muerte y del abismo. Escribe, pues, lo que
veas: lo que está sucediendo y lo que ha de suceder más
Lectura del santo evangelio según san Juan (20,19-31):
Al anochecer de aquel día, el primero de la semana, estaban
los discípulos en una casa, con las puertas cerradas por
miedo a los judíos.
Y en esto entró Jesús, se puso en medio y les dijo: «Paz a
Y, diciendo esto, les enseñó las manos y el costado. Y los
discípulos se llenaron de alegría al ver al Señor.
Jesús repitió: «Paz a vosotros. Como el Padre me ha enviado, así también os envío yo.»
Y, dicho esto, exhaló su aliento sobre ellos y les dijo:
«Recibid el Espíritu Santo; a quienes les perdonéis los pecados! quedan perdonados; a quienes se los retengáis, les
quedan retenidos.»
Tomás, uno de los Doce, llamado el Mellizo, no estaba con
ellos cuando vino Jesús. Y los otros discípulos le decían:
«Hemos visto al Señor.»
Pero él les contestó: «Si no veo en sus manos la señal de los
clavos, si no meto el dedo en el agujero de los clavos y no
meto la mano en su costado, no lo creo.»
A los ocho días, estaban otra vez dentro los discípulos y
Tomás con ellos. Llegó Jesús, estando cerradas las puertas,
se puso en medio y dijo: «Paz a vosotros.»
Luego dijo a Tomás: «Trae tu dedo, aquí tienes mis manos;
trae tu mano y métela en mi costado; y no seas incrédulo,
sino creyente.»
Contestó Tomás: «¡Señor Mío y Dios Mío!»
Jesús le dijo: «¿Porque me has visto has creído? Dichosos
los que crean sin haber visto.»
Muchos otros signos, que no están escritos en este libro,
hizo Jesús a la vista de los discípulos. Éstos se han escrito
para que creáis que Jesús es el Mesías, el Hijo de Dios, y
para que, creyendo tengáis vida en su nombre.
