I Have Seen the Lord

I'm reposting an entry from another, older blog. I love the mass readings for today.

In todays Gospel,Mary Magdalene goes to the tomb where Jesus was laid. She finds it empty and then is approached by Jesus himself. She tells the disciples, "I have seen the Lord."

As a Catholic, I have the privilege of seeing the Lord everytime I go to church. The Catholic church teaches that when the bread and wine are consecrated, they become the Body and Blood of Christ. This teaching comes to us from Christ in the gospel of John. It is a sublime experience to receive Christ in the Holy Eucharist. There is a new meaning to Phillipians 4:13 "I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me." (King James Version.)

Christ is risen!! He is truly risen!!
