The Third Sunday of Easter
April 22, 2012
“Then he opened their minds to understand the Scriptures.”
What does “opened their minds” mean? Surely, more than an intellectual exercise in understanding. The end of this Sunday’s Gospel
makes clear what this line means and, indeed, what even the
resurrection means: we are to be witnesses of all these things. In
the first reading Peter continues to do what Jesus had done in the
Gospel: he explains the saving death and resurrection of Jesus as
the fulfillment of Scripture. Peter thus carries out the mission that
Jesus has given to all of us and models for us the witness of true
discipleship.
There is a very practical, concrete reality to the resurrection that involves us in those very events.
The resurrection is about much more than Jesus being raised from the dead. The new order that it
establishes means that each of us is to witness to the resurrection by preaching repentance and
forgiving sins. To “preach” means, first, that we witness by our very living. This means that if we are
to witness Christ’s resurrection by preaching forgiveness, we ourselves must be forgiving people. If
we are to witness to repentance, we much be repenting people. The resurrection, then, makes a
difference in our lives. It challenges us to do what is utterly basic to the Gospels: repent and forgive.
Ghosts don’t do these things. Real, alive-in-Christ people do! —Living Liturgy 2012
Easter as a Season
Most people think of Easter as a single
day. It’s never had the commercial
appeal of Christmas, and because it
always falls on Sunday, most people
don’t get an additional day off from work.
But for Catholics, Easter isn’t just a day,
it’s a whole season. This year, the
Easter season stretches all the way to
May 27th, the feast of Pentecost. Lent,
which some times feels like it’s stretching on forever, is actually
forty days long. Easter, on the other hand, is all of fifty days long.
At Masses all through the Easter season, our usual practice of
reading from the Old Testament is replaced by reading from the
Acts of the Apostles. These readings tell the story of the
Church’s earliest days, and the beginnings of our faith’s spreading throughout the ancient world. These stories of heroism, controversies, persecutions and miracles all testify to the continued
presence of the Risen Christ in the world, through the lives of his
disciples, and the actions of the Holy Spirit.
All of this should be an encouragement and a sign of hope for us
today. Despite war, violence, personal struggles, and an underperforming economy, God has not abandoned us, nor left us to
our own devices. The Risen Savior is still with us. These 50 days
of Easter ask us to reflect on his presence, and—even in the face
of danger or fear—to live with joy.
by Rev. Larry Rice, CSP http://foryourmarriage.org/easter-as-a-season
Prayer: The raising of one's mind and heart
to God in thanksgiving and in praise of his
glory. It can also include the requesting of
good things from God. It is an act by which
one enters into awareness of a loving
communion with God. "Prayer is the
response of faith to the free promise of
salvation and also a response of love to the
thirst of the only Son of God" (CCC, no.
2561).
—From the United States Catholic Catechism for Adults
Descriptions of prayer are
abundant throughout
Christian history. "True
prayer," wrote St. Augustine,
"is nothing but love."
Prayer should arise from the
heart. "Prayer," said St. John Vianney, "is the inner bath of
love into which the soul plunges itself." "Everyone of us
needs half an hour of prayer each day," remarked St.
Francis de Sales, "except when we are busy—then we
need an hour." Definitions of prayer are important, but
insufficient. There is a huge difference between knowing
about prayer and praying. On this issue, the Rule of St.
Benedict is clear, "If a man wants to pray, let him go and
pray."
"The greatest tragedy of life is not unanswered prayer,
but unoffered prayer." —F.B. Meyer

Today’s readings offer several ways to
witness. Like the earliest disciples, we are
called to “repent”—to completely change our
ways of perceiving, judging, and acting, to
become more like the “Holy and Righteous
One” we follow. We bear convincing
testimony to Christ when we “keep his
commandments.” And each Sunday we come
together as a community to “understand the
Scriptures” and to share “the breaking of the
bread.” In these ways, “we are witnesses.”

The Third Sunday of Easter
April 22, 2012
St. Mark—April 25
St. Mark’s feast should have special meaning for us in this Year B. Our
Sunday readings have immersed us in Mark, and during the months to
come we will continue to explore this shortest and oldest text written by
the four evangelists.
Mark’s Gospel takes our breath away with its rapid telling of the events of
Jesus’ public ministry. A mere sixteen chapters from beginning to end, the
Gospel of Mark is both the shortest and earliest of the four gospels in the
Bible. Archeologists and textual experts have dated this gospel to about
70 CE, at least a few decades after the death of Jesus.
The Gospel of Mark gives us a unique portrait of Jesus, which can be
drawn as much from what the gospel does not contain as from what it
does. The story begins, for example, not with a story of the birth of Jesus,
as do the Gospels of Matthew and Luke. No magi or shepherds for Mark!
The end of the Gospel had a unique abbreviation as well. The original
version of Mark ended not with 16:20 (as do our Bibles, centuries later), but with verse 16:8. The original text
left hearers pondering disciples who had run away and tomb-visiting women who had fled the scene
“frightened out of their wits.” Verses 16:9–20 were added a short time later.
Between its abrupt beginning and incomplete ending—an empty tomb, but no resurrection—the gospel
plunges us into the whirlwind of Jesus’ activity, which is described in a sometimes harsh, spare style. Along
the way Jesus preaches and prophesies, hollers and heals, teaches and tells tales up to his coming to
Jerusalem, where his life as one of us ends, but the story just begins. (Perhaps we are the disciples who
must now live in the mystery of the empty tomb.)
The portrait of Jesus sketched by Mark is difficult for Christians to hear. Because of its content of suffering
and tribulation, some have called it a “passion narrative with a long introduction.” Throughout the story,
Jesus anticipates his death, and he draws the listener in to focus on this aspect of the Christian life. In art,
the evangelist Mark is portrayed with a lion by his side.

The Ciborium
You might not have heard this special name
before. The ciborium looks like the chalice, but is
different because it has a cover or a lid. That’s
because after everyone has received Communion
sometimes there are hosts left over so the priest
puts them in the ciborium and closes the lid and
places it in the tabernacle to be used at a later
Mass. The priest puts the ciborium in the tabernacle and he locks the tabernacle with a key.
That’s because the hosts are very holy and must
be locked up to be safe. Do you have a special “treasure box” where
you keep some of your favorite things? Well, the tabernacle is the
treasure box in church, because Jesus in the host is the greatest
treasure there is! —131 Fundamental Facts for Catholic Kids
“Listen to the Savior:
I regenerated you,
I set you free,
I healed you,
I redeemed you.
I will give you
life that is
unending
eternal,
supernatural.
I will show you
the face of God.”
—St. Clement of Alexandria

Tercer Domingo de Pascua
¿Cómo reconozco a Jesús Resucitado? En el evangelio de hoy vemos a los Apóstoles reunidos comentando los sucesos de los últi‐
mos días. En esta reunión, están los discípu‐
los de Emaús que habían regresado a Jeru‐
salén después de haber reconocido a Jesús en el peregrino que los ilustraba y que luego partió con ellos el pan. En este ambiente de reunión se presenta Jesús y, a pesar de que estaban hablando de él, se asustan y hasta llegan a sentir miedo. Los eventos de la Pa‐
sión no han sido asimilados suficientemente por los seguidores de Jesús. Todavía no lo‐
gran establecer la relación entre el Jesús con quien ellos convivieron y el Jesús resucitado. San Lucas nos narra la confusión y la turba‐
ción de los discípulos, ellos creen que se trata de un fantasma; su reacción externa es tal que el mismo Jesús se asombra y corrige: “¿por qué se turban sus corazones?”. Los discípulos tenían en su mente la imagen del Jesús con quien hasta un poco an‐
tes habían compartido, es verdad que tenían diversas expectativas sobre él y por eso él los tiene que seguir instruyendo. El evento, de la Resurrección no afecta sólo a Jesús; poco a poco los discípulos tendrán que asumir que a ellos les toca ser testigos de esta obra del Pa‐
dre, pero a partir de la transformación de su propia existencia. El evento de la resurrección es antes que nada el evento de la renovación. Este pa‐
saje debe ser leído a la luz de la primera par‐
te: la experiencia de los discípulos de Emaús. Las instrucciones de Jesús basadas en la Es‐
critura infunden confianza en los discípulos de Emaus. En Jesús se da el cumplimiento de las promesas de Dios, pero al estilo de Dios, no al estilo humano. ¿Cómo busco, me formar y renuevo mi fe en el acontecimiento del Resucitado? 22 de abril del 2012
