Blessed Are They who Hunger and Thirst for Righteousness, for they shall be satisfiedActs 8:1-8
Today’s first reading tells of the persecutions of the early Church. But the focus is on the joy of the people due to the proclamation of Jesus and the healings done in His Name through the apostles, Philip in particular.
Following our Easter celebration, it is beautiful to reflect on the joy of our faith in the early Church. It gives us pause to embolden our own faith and move forward in courage to proclaim Jesus Risen, to those in our own day and time.
