April 21. Thursday of Easter week.    Bryan, who saw himself as a budding forensic pathologist wondered, “I am fascinated by Jesus and his resurrected body, in fact in the whole issue of spirits. How could Jesus not be a spirit and appear and disappear at will?   It must really have been very confusing for the disciples to believe.  Touching something does make it far more real and I suppose once you have crossed the barrier of trust in this new Jesus you can also take seriously what he said.”  

Reflect, share and act. Scripture Jesus said to them ”Why are you troubled?  See my hands and my feet, that it is I myself. Touch me and see, for a spirit has no flesh and bones as I have. Then he opened their minds to understand the scriptures. Read Luke 24:35-48  Pope Francis. The New Testament does not only tell us of the earthly Jesus and his tangible and loving relationship with the world. It also shows him risen and glorious, present throughout creation by his universal Lordship. This leads us to direct our gaze to the end of time when the Son will deliver all things to the Father. The creatures of this world will no longer appear to us under merely natural guise.  LS 100
