RISE, Daily Reflections: Monday, April 16th, 2018

Monday, April 16th

 

READ:

The next day, the crowd that remained across the sea saw that there had been only one boat there, and that Jesus had not gone along with his disciples in the boat, but only his disciples had left. Other boats came from Tiberias near the place where they had eaten the bread when the Lord gave thanks. When the crowd saw that neither Jesus nor his disciples were there, they themselves got into boats and came to Capernaum looking for Jesus. And when they found him across the sea they said to him, “Rabbi, when did you get here?” Jesus answered them and said, “Amen, amen, I say to you, you are looking for me not because you saw signs but because you ate the loaves and were filled. Do not work for food that perishes but for the food that endures for eternal life,* which the Son of Man will give you. For on him the Father, God, has set his seal.” So they said to him, “What can we do to accomplish the works of God?”

–John 6:22-29

 

REFLECT:

Today our Lord Jesus tells us that the work of God is to believe in Him, that is, to believe that the Father has sent Him to restore all things. There are many ways we express this belief, this trust. We can show trust in Christ in what we do, in what we refuse to do, in what we say, and what we refuse to say. Let us commit to trusting our Lord in all things and at all times, especially in times of suffering.

 

RESPOND:

Pray “Jesus I trust in you” on each bead of the rosary.
