April 10, 2015 (John 21:1-14)

“Jesus revealed Himself again.” In John’s gospel, today’s reading at mass is the third appearance after He rose from the dead, and, yet, they still don’t believe (recognize Him). Only after Jesus directs Peter’s fishing expedition does Peter recognize who Jesus is.

We have difficulties recognizing Jesus, too (see yesterday’s blog). Do we only sees Jesus in the good times when things are going well? Do we fail to see Him when things are difficult? Do we lose sight of Him in the day-to-day routine of daily living? We need to look for Him each day in whatever it is that we are doing. Today, let’s pray for the grace to see Jesus and know that He is there with us at all times.
