Today’s Gospel continues the Easter story. Here is part of it: ‘Jesus met them and said, “Hail!” And they came up and took hold of his feet and worshipped him. Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid; go and tell my brethren to go to Galilee, and there they will see me.”’

‘They came up and took hold of his feet and worshipped him …’ they knew Him as Divinity as He greeted them. He tells them not to be afraid, and gives them the message to tell to the brethren.

The background of the icon below is completely dark; against this the brightness of Jesus shines out. May His light shine forth also in our own lives this Eastertide, and may God bless you this day.
