About Today Readings

Easter Thursday.

Acts 3:11-26. Psalm 8:2, 5-9. Luke 24:35-48.

O Lord, our God, how wonderful your name in all the earth!—Psalm 8:2, 5-9.

The eyes of the soul see mysteries that are not understood by this world.

Today’s readings help us to take that leap to faith. The man healed by God’s mercy through Peter and John knew immediately that he had received his cure through the power of Jesus. The two disciples on the road to Emmaus knew him immediately in the breaking of the bread although they had not recognised Jesus in the flesh. The psalm invites us to see the glory and majesty of God in the wonders of nature around us as a sign of his loving care for us.

Dear Lord, please give us the inner eyes of faith, especially today as we continue the Easter celebrations. May we come to life with our spiritual hearts and minds wide open, ready to receive all the blessings that you promise.
