Bearing the Presence of Christ

terrified, doubting yet transformed by his presence resurrection love

Summary: On the evening of that first Easter Day, Jesus appears to his disciples. St. Luke describes them as: "startled, terrified, frightened, doubting, joyful, disbelieving, wondering…” Yet the presence of Christ transforms them, and works through them to announce Jesus' ministry of repentance and forgiveness to the entire world. Christ is present today as well, through Stephen Ministers, and through believers like you and me, to bring God's gifts to those who need it. For that, we give God thanks and praise!
