“When the Jews saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were uneducated, common men, they wondered; and they recognized that they had been with Jesus.” (Acts 4.13)

The affect of living in Communion with Jesus Christ is both a wonder to the world and strength to the faithful. In today’s reading from Acts we see the boldness with which the ancient Church proclaimed the reality of the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the power of God. We also see the ineffectiveness of the world to silence the Gospel of Christ. What are we doing in 2010 to live this reality of being in communion with God? As the Holy Apostles declared, “Whether it is right in the sight of God to listen to you [the world] rather than to God, you must judge; for we cannot but speak of what we have seen and heard.” (Acts 4.19-20) The Church has witnessed the power of God and now we must declare it the world.

Christ is Risen! Go and proclaim it to the entire world!
