Jesus stood in their midst and said to them, “Peace be with you.”
Gospel's Commentary
Today we are still celebrating the resurrection of Jesus. Now we see that He appears before the Apostles, who were still afraid and hiding in a house. The Lord addresses them by wishing them peace. He asks them to believe in Him: -Look, this is my flesh and bones, I am not a ghost! He even eats in front of them. Then, He says a few words to instruct and give them courage. - Fear? Why? God lives, God sees us, God speaks to us, God is with us... Talk to Him!
