April 28, 2019: Second Sunday of Easter
Preaching for the Second Sunday of Easter, Noella de Souza, MCJ offers a reflection on touching and allowing ourselves to be touched by the wounds of those who suffer, while seeing and taking consolation in the signs of resurrection in our world:
"Reading the gospel of John, we ask for that grace that we touch and are touched by, that we feel interiorly the depth of suffering there is in the world today, symbolized by Jesus’ passion, suffering and death. We ask for the consolation to capture the footprints of the Resurrection in life, in the Church, in the world..."
Noella de Souza belongs to a community of women religious, the Missionaries of Christ Jesus, and has trained in Education, and Psychotherapy and Counseling. She has been working in the field of education for the last forty years.
