Divine Mercy: Acts 4:32-35; 1 John 5:1-6; John 20:19-31

Reflection Questions:

  • The first reading from the Acts of the Apostles describes how the first Christians lived out their faith, sharing everything in common and caring for each other’s needs. How does this description compare with your own experience of how the Christian community acts?
  • When have you felt like Thomas — late to the faith party? When has God given you what you needed to believe?
  • At the end of today’s Gospel reading, we hear that “Jesus did many other signs … that are not written in this book.” What do you like to imagine some of those signs might have been?
