Happy Easter season! After the penitential weeks of Lent, it’s time to celebrate. When you join Heart of the Nation for Sunday Mass, the Gospel readings in April will recount for you the surprising reactions as people encountered the Risen Lord. Jesus waited to see how long it would take a couple of travelers on the road to Emmaus to recognize Him. His closest friends thought He was a ghost. (Surely, Jesus understood. He had come into a locked room without using the door, after all.) Thomas wasn’t there and later had to see for himself before he would believe.
