2nd Sunday of Easter Year A
Hymns of thanksgiving to God should be on our lips all the time. We should, like the early Apostles, eat our bread with hearts full of gladness and joy. Why? Because of mercy. What is mercy? Mercy is a price paid. This is why we need to be people of gratitude because someone saw us in our hopeless situation and paid our ransom. The reality of what happened is this - everyone was affected with a superbug for which there was no cure. Everyone would die in a matter of days, except one person who was immune, let’s call Him Jesus. That person, Jesus, offered up His immunity to save everyone from the superbug (sin) and it killed Him and saved us. For that reason we can be grateful for sure.
