Daily Meditation for April 5, 2010

by Bernadette Weber, OSB

Jesus is risen. The risen Jesus approaches his friends and disciples. They think he is a stranger or a gardener. Jesus, however, recognizes each one of them. He calls them by name. Have you seen Jesus? Do you recognize him present here and now? With your eyes of faith and your heart of love you will recognize Jesus. He is here within each of us and among us. Look at the children and all who are childlike. There he is. Look at the people at the food shelves, the homeless, the neglected, the prisoners, the immigrants. There he is. Look at your family members, your co-workers. Look at everyone you meet today. Jesus is alive. “Where charity and love are found, there is God.”Blessed Easter Season!
