Soul Food for Young Adult Communities: Easter Sunday March 31, 2013.

Sinead, Mark and Friends are young adults.

Dear Sinead, Mark, and Friends, 

20-20 Vision!  Wouldn’t you love to have it? ‘The disciples were filled with joy when they saw the Lord!‘  (taken from St. John’s Gospel, Chapter 20: verse 20).

And when you want to see the Lord, and you ask to see the Lord, and you wait to see the

Lord,- then you will (in Jesus’ own time and moment) see the Lord! He will show his face

'Christ at the Heart's Door'- Warner Sallman

to you. He is knocking at the door, he is waiting to be invited into our lives and homes and communities, and when we open the door, and invite him in, he will come in and sit down at table with us,- the beginning of a beautiful relationship for life.  (See Revelations 3:20 – ‘See, I am standing at the door, knocking. If one of you hears me calling and opens the door, I will come in to share a meal at that persons’ side.‘)

Jesus is also knocking at the door of each one of us, of each of our communities, in the guise of the poor, of people in need, who are struggling, feeling down, finding it hard to make ends meet, finding it hard to find friendship and human support, or meaning in life. Pope Francis spoke beautifully on Holy Thursday to priests, at the special Holy Thursday Mass of Chrism (where the Holy Oils are blessed for the year ahead), where priests recall the day of their own ordination to serve God’s people in Christ’s name.  Find it with Soul Food on this Easter Sunday. or click here.

Have a wonderful Easter! The Lord is risen! He is truly risen! And he’s looking for you!

Fr. Seamus.
