Matthew Chap 28, verse 6: “He is not here, for he is risen, as he said. Come, and see the place where the Lord was laid.” Our Lord appeared in the flesh with His wounds clearly visible to over 500 people between His Resurrection and His Ascension to heaven. And, most dramatically He appeared twice to His disciples in the upper room, the second time to St Thomas: “Then she saith to Thomas: Put in thy finger hither, and see my hands; and bring hither thy hand, and put it into my side; and be not faithless, but believing.” (John Chap 20, v 27)
So, this is indeed a Glorious and immensely Joyful occasion for those who hold to the true Catholic Faith but it can also be the same for those who come to the realization that this can be, by a simple profession of their belief, theirs as well. Praise and Glory to Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and His Blessings to you all.
