From the Pastor…Fr. McHugh

During the first several weeks of the Easter season, many of our Gospel readings are resurrection narratives. They emphasize either Jesus’ post-resurrection appearances or offer stories of the empty tomb. Each Gospel offers its own perspective on the resurrection. The empty tomb and the post-resurrectional appearances of Jesus complement one another. The angel or angels who are present at the tomb clarify the meaning of Jesus’ resurrection. The resurrection of Jesus involved a tremendous transformation of the body. People close to Jesus had a hard time recognizing Him. Mark does not offer us any post-resurrection appearance of Jesus. Matthew and Luke give us different locations of Jesus’ appearances. Matthew speaks of Jesus appearing in Galilee. Luke tells us of Jesus appearing in Jerusalem. Chapter 21 of John, which was a later addition to the Gospel, has Jesus appearing in Galilee.
