THE THIRD SUNDAY OF EASTER
The Gospel for The Third Sunday of Easter (Year C) is from Luke 24, wherein the risen Christ reveals himself to the disciples and actually eats before them a broiled fish and a honeycomb. Is he a ghost? Clearly not. Does he have a body? Yes, but one that is so much more than what we have.
What to make of this? These sermons by the Rector might help:
For John Updike (2009)
The Name and Power of Jesus (2006)
Physical Faith (2003)
O God, whose blessed Son did manifest himself to his disciples in the breaking of bread: Open, we pray thee, the eyes of our faith, that we may behold him in all his redeeming work; through the same thy Son Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
