I am finally reading the Acts of the Apostles during Easter Time! I have wanted to do this for years and always allowed myself to be distracted. However, one of the gifts of this Lent was the grace to make the time!
I love it, because when we hear the Acts of The Apostles proclaimed during the Easter season at Mass, I think to myself, “Oh there you are Peter, or Stephen etc.!” It feels like seeing a good friend after you’ve been following them on FB, because you haven’t been able to connect in person.
And when I think about it, just over the past weekend, the Lord has led me to reconnect with some of my dearest friends who I have likewise been missing in person! There is no substitue for being in their presence.
I love how He does that!
Spending time with the Scriptures and life of the early Church reminds me of my spiritual history, who I am and who I am called to be. Much like being with these wonderful people again, I am refreshed and renewed. Abundance!
