Fourth Sunday of Easter – C1

Fourth Sunday of Easter – C1

Years C
Acts 9:36-43

Here is a wonderful definition of a disciple of Jesus: devoted to good works and acts of charity.

Disciples of Jesus could comfortably find themselves in Jewish, Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu, Wickan, Pagan, Atheist, etc. environments and never bat an eyelash and be in the mainstream of each of them with these two simple expressions of their discipleship for the transformation of the world: good works and acts of charity.

We may need to start a new denomination named after Tabitha or Dorcas or simply Gazelle gracefully leaping ahead, the faster to be G*D, by means of these two qualities.

Any other Gazellians out there?

= = = = = = =

where are you lodging this eve
with someone who is unclean
in the eyes of some majority or other

as a good work
an act of charity
or to prove a point

Tabitha lives in Peter
ancestress and ancestor
are alive within us

we don't give up
on charitable good works
being our epitaph too
