Questions of the Week: Easter Sunday April 4 

First Reading:

We hear today part of the speech that Peter delivered in the household of Cornelius, a centurion and Gentile-believer in Christ. Peter bore witness to his experiences with Jesus, including Jesus’ resurrection. To whom do you bear witness to your faith in the resurrected Jesus?

Second Reading:

Paul urges the Colossians to remain focused on Jesus’ resurrection, ascension, and final return — to “seek what is above.” What do you find appealing in this spiritual exercise?

Gospel:

Mark’s account of Jesus’ resurrection focuses on the women’s discovery of the empty tomb. In fact, Jesus risen from the tomb is the original ending of the Gospel of Mark. Why do you think Mark would end his Gospel with the empty tomb?
