Fr John's Reflection 3rd Sunday of Easter
3rd Sunday of Easter – 30th April
Who is this who comes to meet us like the rising sun? As we walk each day we encounter others with their hopes and dreams, their sorrows and their disappointments. As we share time with them these seem to be bought into a new way of seeing which is more than just our discussions. We start to see a greater vision of what brings meaning to life.
It is this encounter with the unseen person, whose our eyes do not fully grasp or our hearts completely contain which moves us to discover the words that bring life. It is this encounter with the Word of Life that allows scripture to be etched into our living flesh. The touchstone of who we are called to be, a vision greater than our own.
As we break bread with each other his life becomes part of our own or rather we become at one with him who brings us into a communion of life which transforms our whole world.
Fr. John Armstrong
"The intellectual quest is exquisite, like pearls and coral. But it is not the same as the spiritual quest. The spiritual quest is on another level altogether. Spiritual wine has a subtler taste. The intellect and the senses investigate cause and effect. The spiritual seeker surrenders to wonder." (Rumi Wisdom; trans. Timothy Freke)
