Third Sunday of Easter – C1

Third Sunday of Easter – C1

Years C
Acts 9:1-6, (7-20)

Little Shop of Horrors has a lovely song, Suddenly Seymour.

You may want to begin making some additional connections:
Suddenly Saul (breathing threats descends upon a follower of Jesus)
Suddenly Jesus (or light) (stops violence)
Suddenly Scales (arrive - justice revealed up-close-and-personal)
Suddenly Vision (though not suddenly acted upon)
Suddenly Ananias (with healing hands, not violent ones)
Suddenly Scales (depart - lesson learned)
Suddenly Proclamation

[Note: Another helpful approach is by Walter Bruggemann.]

= = = = = = =

would we see ourselves
as others see us?

not usually
too painful
so excused

for to see ourselves
as others see us

takes confrontation
takes clarity
takes conversion
