Do you live as a victorious Christian, knowing that Jesus has conquered the world? - Daily Reflections May 18,2015

It seems Jesus is relieved at the fact that the disciples have finally believed in Him as the One sent by the Father. His mission is complete. However, Jesus is only too aware of the human heart, which is capable of deceit and being weak in faith. Although the disciples now believe, many of them will be scattered. The following hours will surely reveal this.
       How many times did Jesus try to convince them of the Father’s love? And only now do these disciples see beyond His metaphors and figurative speech and recognize that He truly is the Savior of the world. Jesus is aware that trouble and persecution await His beloved friends and so He tells them not to be afraid for He has conquered the world. Our faith is born of a hope in the resurrection. Many things will come against us in this life. Jesus is fully aware, but we must hold firm. All around us, the world is in desperate need for peace. Natural disasters, wars, oppression and violence surround us every day. The Christian stands as a witness that there is life beyond destruction. The story of Jesus manifests this in a powerful way.
       The week between Ascension and Pentecost is dedicated to unity. We, as Christians, must pray and be united in our efforts to proclaim the Risen Christ. As Christians, we must stand strong, firm in our conviction of Jesus who has died, risen and who will come again. This is our acclamation of faith.
       The Risen Lord brings us peace. Let us be peacemakers in the way we relate with each other. How can we accomplish this? By the love we have for each other will the people see we are Christians. Fr. Brian Steele, MGL
