TERCER DOMINGO DE PASCUA
19 DE ABRIL DE 2015
No tengamos miedo. Cristo está en medio de nosotros y
nos dice como a sus discípulos: Paz a vosotros. Está en
medio de nosotros porque ha resucitado. Podemos ver
y palpar las llagas de Sus manos, de Sus pies y de Su
costado. No es un fantasma. Es una realidad: Mirad mis
manos y mis pies. Soy Yo en persona. Palpadme y daos
cuenta de que los fantasmas no tienen carne y hueso,
como veis que Yo tengo. Y comparte la comida con los
discípulos. Se han cumplido las Escrituras: el Mesías
padecerá, resucitará de entre los muertos al tercer
día, y en su nombre se predicará la conversión y el
perdón de los pecados a todos los pueblos comenzando
por Jerusalén. Cristo resucitado sigue estando presente
entre nosotros en la Eucaristía. Está presente su
cuerpo, su sangre, su alma, su divinidad, su Persona
divina. Cristo sigue estando presente en el alma por la
gracia santificante
