Third Week of Easter

People who had seen the multiplication of loaves and fish found Jesus the next day. They wanted more proof before believing in Him—something like manna in the desert given to their ancestors. When the Lord promised His flesh as the Bread of eternal life, He added that no one could come to Him unless drawn by the Father. In the early Church, God worked through the Disciples as they proclaimed Christ and miracles occurred. In a blinding light, the voice of Jesus asked why a ruthless Pharisee named Saul persecuted Him. With his sight restored, Saul became known as Paul, an Apostle chosen to minister to the Gentiles. When we want a sign from heaven, do we consider that having to detour around obstacles in our lives can show us the route God wants us to take?
