Easter is the season that follows the Lent beginning on Easter Sunday and ending on Pentecost.

The historical practice of preachers was to use this season to explain the mysteries of the faith to those recently added to the faithful by baptism at the Easter Vigil. Their preaching (known as the mystagogical catechesis) taught things the mind has difficulty comprehending. It is no surprise that the writings of John have become associated with this period.

Scatteringshooting while wondering…

Last week’s passage had Thomas in the center of the action. This week Peter becomes the focal point for Jesus’ telling and showing God's will.

Follow me.

Obedience opens doors to God’s will.
Abundance is the sign of God’s will.
Love is the power to accomplish God’s will.
Sacrifice is the strategy of God’s will.

The reason the Gospels don’t end with the resurrection is that God’s will is not complete with the resurrection. God’s will is for every person to believe and have life (Jn 20:31).
