Third Week of Easter

People had seen the miraculous multiplication of loaves and fish. Soon afterward, Jesus advised them to work for food that does not perish. He realized that it would take work to believe in Him as the Bread of Life. The Lord promised not to reject anyone who comes to Him, explaining that no one comes without the heavenly Father’s prompting. The Apostles, empowered by the Holy Spirit, showed that God calls the faithful to Him but also sends them forth. Philip, for example, explained Scripture in light of the Lord to an inquiring royal court official. Peter cured the paralytic Aeneas and raised Tabitha from the dead. In the face of challenges, do we get downcast about how little we can do or uplifted by what God can do through us?
