Third Sunday of Easter - April 19, 2015
You are witnesses of these things! After Jesus' resurrection he
appeared to his disciples to comfort them and to finish preparing them
for their earthly mission. Scripture had foretold how the Christ would
suffer and die at the hands of the people. As the Lord explained the
Word to them, the disciples came to understand the purpose of Jesus'
sacrifice, to atone for the sins of mankind. The church was established
to spread the Good News that our sins will be forgiven if we repent and
obey God's commandments. May we recognize our Savior in our encounters
with God's children on earth.
