Easter 3 - Year C
Jesus started the whole Rahnerian recognition of an “anonymous Christian” as constituent of Easter. Mary didn’t recognize Jesus. Simon Peter, Thomas called the Twin, Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, the sons of Zebedee, and two others of his disciples didn’t recognize Jesus. Paul didn’t recognize Jesus. I have not recognized Jesus in my dealings with folks who needed bread, shirt, or visit. How about you?
Easter and glory are so easy to miss through dismissal of their possibility.
We are now moving into a third week of Easter. How’s it going? Still looking around ready to catch a glimpse of Jesus. Here is a big hint about doing so — feeding and tending Neighb*rs. Confirm your blessedness through blessing Neighb*rs already beloved — recognized or not.
