The readings these days are so great! It is hard to focus on just one thing of a few... How wonderful is all we are reading from Acts day after day, and today is no different! Peter and the Apostles are put into the public jail... in the dark night an angel comes and miraculously removes them without those watching guard knowing, and they come into the LIGHT of day... Go and take your place in the temple area, and tell the people everything about this life. they are told by the angel of The Lord! How does this apply to us? We too have experienced Jesus alive and well in our lives! We are called to share that and sometimes use words!

The Gospel today is amazing! John 3:16-21... "God so loved the world that he gave his only-begotten Son, so that everyone who believes in him might not perish but might have eternal life."
Pat and I shared morning prayer, the readings and Pat paused in his busy day to listen to the words of soon to be St Theresa of Calcutta this morning - Some time ago a Hindu gentleman was asked, "What is a Christian?" He gave an answer that was both very simple and surprising, "A Christian is someone who gives of himself." From the beginning we perceive that indeed to be a Christian is nothing other than to give of oneself for the sake of Christ. God so loved the world that he gave us his Son. His Son was given to us because he wanted to be one with us, like us in everything but sin. Blessed Teresa of Calcutta
From Maria's blog today... Maria's bunch missed seeing Hallel in KC last year - they were 2 days away in NC... maybe next time! Here they are enjoying Easter week 2 with a movie.
