Easter Bytes


A practical truth of life is, 'I cannot give what I do not have. I can only share what I have.' We see evidence of this reality in today's first reading. Peter and John encounter a crippled beggar at the gate of the temple. Peter states that he does not have any silver or gold to give (Acts 3:6a). Then Peter shares what he does have, the power of the resurrected Christ to impart healing (Acts 3:6b-7). We are given the gifts of time, talent and treasure from our God. All are encouraged to use our blessings to enrich the lives of others, especially the less fortunate among us. However, like Peter and John, some of us may not have sufficient silver or gold to share. But we are all empowered by the Spirit to share the love of Christ and His power with others. As we celebrate the joy of the resurrection, may our Easter faith uplift others in Jesus' name. Lord Jesus, may the power of Your resurrection so fill us that we may be sources of inspiration, support and love for others. Amen.
