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.
