Gospel Reflection Sunday of Easter, Weekend of April 14/15, 2018
An underlying lesson from all three readings this weekend is that the Risen Christ has wiped away our sins, not only
for individuals, but throughout the world and its history. The terrible power of sin has now been reversed and
our coming to perfection through the love of God is part of the Easter experience. As stewards of God’s love we are called to participate in Christ’s redemptive activity. The stewardship questions for us are many: How do we resist injustice at home or in the workplace? How do we confront violence in our language and attitudes? How do we bring Christ to others?
This weekend – Ecclesiastical Education
Next weekend – Maintenance of St George’s
