JUST A THOUGHT FROM JOHN GLYNN

SECOND SUNDAY OF EASTER
23rd April 2017

The doors were closed, but Jesus came and stood in the midst of them. He did not, as in the Apocalypse (Rev 3:20), stand at the closed door and knock, and wait till we are ready to admit him. For the risen Lord, there are no doors. “With you I can break through any barrier,” says the psalmist (Ps 17:30), “with my God I can scale any wall.” His presence is not an intrusion into our closed world: we have already said yes to him, and he dwells now in our innermost heart. If he’s still knocking on our door, it’s from the inside of our heart where he lives, as if to say: “Don’t lock me away in some secret religious retreat – I want to reach out through you to all creation, and break through the barriers of injustice and scale the walls of selfishness and pride.” “Our life is hidden with Christ in God,” says St Paul (Col 3:3), and God is hidden in Christ in us.

Any closed doors in our lives are of our making; and they betray the presence of fear. St John in his first letter says: “God is love…. In love there can be no fear, but fear is driven out by perfect love” (4:8,18). Trust is the first thing to go when fear and suspicion rule our lives, as is all too evident in our world today. The doors were closed to Mary and Joseph in Bethlehem on the night Jesus was born, so he’s no stranger to rejection. But the Divine Mercy still persists, and will never cease. Isn’t that our hope and our model, as nations close their doors to one another and shrink back behind the barricades? Trust has no walls.

Alleluia! The Lord is risen!

John
