Third Sunday of Easter

April 14, 2013

04/14/13 St. Ann's Bulletin

TODAY (White) Acts 5:27-32, 40b-41; Rev 5:11-14; Jn 21:1-19

NEXT WEEK (White) Acts 13:14, 43-52; Rev 7:9, 14b-17; Jn 10:27-30

The gospel actually hints at two failures: the fishermen coming back with no fish, Peter’s denial of Jesus before his death. Yet these failures became occasions for Jesus’ gift of abundance: a large catch of fish, a fuller love that would “glorify God.” Faithful discipleship is not measured by absence of failure, but by openness to obeying new commands from Jesus, recognition of God’s abundant gifts, and willingness to grow into new life.

Pro-Life Religious Outreach
On the 40th birthday of his son with Down Syndrome, Columnist George Will wrote a column on the positive influence such a child has on all those he touches. He notes that his son was born at a time when prenatal genetic testing for Down Syndrome was just becoming common and shortly before abortion was made legal, unleashing a search and control mission directed at defenseless children. Now abortion destroys 90% of those diagnosed with Down Syndrome, resulting in the loss of a significant number of kind, loving people.
