The Resurrection
Jesus Appears to His Disciples

Take 1 or 2 minutes of silence.

Slowly read aloud this passage of Scripture:

That Sunday evening the disciples were meeting behind locked doors because they were afraid of the Jewish leaders. Suddenly, Jesus was standing there among them! “Peace be with you,” he said. As he spoke, he showed them the wounds in his hands and his side. They were filled with joy when they saw the Lord! Again he said, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, so I am sending you.” (John 20:19-21 NLT)

Kneel or simply open your hands and pray:

Jesus, with joy we view your victorious wounds, help us to meditate on them and to see in them the sign of victory. May they give us courage to go forth with your blessing.

O Jesus, bless us with your outstretched hands. Give us your peace, give us your love. We love you, Jesus; be with us as we go out to do the will of God in our lives.
