3d Sunday of Easter

Content for Sunday, April 18th, 2021

“Today Christ is asking each of you the same question: do you love me? 

He is not asking you whether you know how to speak to crowds, whether you can direct an organization or manage an estate. He is asking you to love Him. All the rest will ensue.”

St. John Paul II

TAKE TIME TO CHAT

  • In today’s Gospel story, Jesus asked his disciples why they were troubled. Why do you think they were troubled?
  • Share a time you went to Jesus when you were troubled.
  • Why did Jesus ask the disciples to look at his hands and feet?

FAMILY FUN

Playground Fun

In today’s Gospel, the disciples were “incredulous for joy.” Playgrounds bring great joy to children. Celebrate the joy of the season at a playground in your favorite park or a new park that you’ve always wanted to visit.

FAMILY CHALLENGE

As a family, decide on one way your family can help the poor this week/this month.

FUN FACT

Jesus’ resurrected body was different from his earthly body – he appeared and vanished instantly, yet he had flesh and bones and he ate food.

FAMILY PRAYER

Prayer for the Fifth National Encuentro of Hispanic/Latino Ministry
God of infinite Mercy,
you sent your Risen Son
to encounter the disciples on the way to Emmaus.
Grant us today a missionary spirit and send us forth to encounter our sisters and brothers:
to walk with them in friendship,
to listen to their hopes and dreams with compassion,
and to proclaim your Word with courage,
so that they might come to know you once again
in the breaking of the Bread.
Make us all missionary disciples, and stay with us always,
as we seek to share the joy of the Gospel
with people of all generations,
from every race, language, culture, and nation.
We ask you this with burning hearts,
filled with the Holy Spirit,
in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,
and through the loving intercession of our Blessed Mother Mary, Our Lady of Guadalupe,
Star of the New Evangelization in the Americas.

Amen.
