3rd Sunday of Easter

Today’ Mass Readings

Love fully

One thing Jesus never could stomach is a hypocrite. In the stories, he always prefers sincere sinners to religious fakers. It’s easy to slip into the role of a synthetic disciple without even noticing. Our religious routines—prayer, Mass attendance, lip-synced proper responses to moral issues—can go on autopilot. Meanwhile, self-congratulation, nasty judgments, self-involvement, and the unwillingness to forgive can turn our hearts to stone under the surface. How we love is far more important than how we look.

Today’s readings:Acts 3:13-15, 17-19; 1 John 2:1-5a; Luke 24:35-48 (47).

“Those who say, ‘I know him,’ but do not keep his commandments are liars.”

Prepare the Word
