The Good News
Today's Gospel is from Mark and gives us three of the apparitions of Jesus in a more abbreviated form. He tells us that Jesus appeared first to Mary Magdalene and she went and told the others that Jesus was alive and had been seen by her, but they did not believe her.
Then Mark tells us how Jesus had appeared to the two disciples walking away from Jerusalem and they returned to tell the others but they were not believed either.
But then Jesus came and appeared to the others at table and rebuked them for their unbelief. Then Jesus told them: "Go into the whole world and proclaim the Gospel to every creature."
That is the message that Jesus wants us all to receive. He is truly risen and we are to go forth and proclaim the Good News!
