Easter Week

Even Jesus’ friends and followers failed to recognize the Resurrected Lord. After an angelic message and the sight of an empty tomb with the stone rolled away, Mary Magdalene mistook Jesus for a gardener until He said her name. The Lord explained Scripture as He walked with two travelers on the Road to Emmaus, but only after He blessed and broke bread did they realize that Jesus had Risen. When the Lord appeared to the Disciples in a locked room, they feared that He was a ghost. Despite prior appearances, it took a miraculous haul of fish for Peter and half a dozen other Disciples to catch on after the Lord called out advice from the beach on where to cast their net. When we find it hard to believe that the Lord remains with us, do we have too many expectations of how He should appear?
