The Capacity to Forget!

What were they thinking, that HE would take them back, that he would forgive them?  One apostle denied him.  Another doubted him.  Many of them questioned him.  And they all abandoned him when HE really needed them.

So how does the Risen Crucified Christ receive his disciples?  He makes a meal for them and HE invites them to sit down and eat breakfast.

In the words of Pope Francis, yes, we are sinners.  “All the better! Go to Jesus: he likes you to tell him these things!” He forgets, he has a very special capacity for forgetting.

He is Risen!  Truly, He is Risen!
