Friday of the Fourth Week of Easter

But God raised him from the dead, and for many days he appeared to those who had come up with him from Galilee to Jerusalem. These are now his witnesses before the people.
We ourselves are proclaiming this good news to you that what God promised our fathers he has brought to fulfillment for us, their children, by raising up Jesus, as it is written in the second psalm, You are my Son; this day I have begotten you.

We are all the children of God and as such we are all given every grace we need to become a worthy heir to the Kingdom of God. He gives us gifts and talents to use to spread His Divine Word and proclaim the Good News to others. He watches over us and protects us from evil. He consoles us when we are suffering and promises us that better days are ahead. He is with us always, never abandoning us, even when we abandon Him. He raises us up when we fall into temptation or worry and strengthens us with His Mercy and Love.

Do we act like worthy heirs to the Kingdom of God? In what ways do we proclaim the Good News? How can we give thanks to God for all He has done for us?

O Lord, makes us witnesses to and prophets of the Word of God.
