On the evening of Easter and eight days after, Jesus shows His infinite mercy. The disciples were imprisoned there, fearful, incredulous, one more than the other.

At 5.17-26, Ps 33, Jn 3.16-21
Whoever believes in him is not condemned John 3:18
Thus we understand this word, he who believes in Jesus "is not" convicted.

At 5.34-42, Ps 26, Jn 6.1 to 15
Pick up the pieces left Jn 6.12
This is the invitation of Jesus to the disciples who witnessed the multiplication of the loaves stunned donated by a boy. Who wants to satiate even the "Bread", a sign of the bread of life which is Jesus, enters the Church, the Twelve Apostles, who guard the twelve baskets of fragments left over, it will have enough for all who will hear the Son of God

(Mf: San Anselmo, Vesco. And dr., † 1109)
At 6.1 to 7, Ps 32, Jn 6.16-21
It was now dark Jn 6.17
The disciples did not accept that Jesus gave up to become king after the multiplication of the loaves, which is why it is dark even in their hearts: Jesus himself is seen by them as a ghost. Jesus, in His mercy, love them and comes to their aid, saying: "I am not afraid." So she gives them courage and makes them come to the place where they were going.

At 3,13-15.17-19, Sal 4, 1 John 2.1 to 5; Luke 24.35-48
Look at my hands and my feet, that's me! Lk 24.39
Think of the Risen Jesus reminds me of one of the signs that Jesus asked, before going to follow him. I asked to see a community similar to that of the first Church of Jerusalem, to be sure of his presence. But now I know that in any meeting of the Eucharist, he still shows signs of wearing his cross. In the Eucharistic, in fact, the plight of the brothers are not scandal, but evidence of the presence of Jesus

What must we do to do the works of God? Jn 6.28
Jesus asked in these words, he replied: "This is the work of God you believe in Him whom He sent." God the Father expects of us who believe in Jesus Christ his Son. This faith, then, becomes the source of every good deed, and will be a source of life and peace.
24 / 4 MAR IIIa T.P. [III]
(Mf: St. Fidelis of Sigmaringen, priest. And mart., † 1622)
7.51 at 8.1, Ps 30, Jn 6.30-35
What sign you casts so that we see and believe you? Jn 6.30
Those who have asked this question to Jesus had seen the sign of the multiplication of the loaves and fishes. To them however, it was not enough.
If you're not humble enough to not anything. That is Jesus' answer does not provide another sign, but only the gift of his life: he that receives it will have more of a sign, will have eternal life!
25 / 4 Wed S. MARCO, Ev. [P]
1 Peter 5.5-14, Ps 88, Mk 16.15-20
Put all humility 1 Pet 5.5
Saint Peter so recommends to the faithful and their pastors. In humility, in fact, there is mutual willingness to listen to understand the intentions of one another. Young people, therefore, be more cautious and more attentive to priests discern what is best suited to lead them to the demands of Christian life. With all the humility that Jesus will receive strength to resist the enemy that wants to take life.

28 / 4 Sat IIIa T.P. [III]
(Mf: St. Louis Marie de Montfort, priest., † 1716, St. Peter Chanel, priest. And mart., † 1841, St. Gianna Beretta Molla, † 1962)
At 9.31-42, Ps 115, Jn 6.60-69
Among you there are some who do not believe John 6.64
Attending S. Mass, attend meetings of a parish or church movement, part of a religious community does not always means having a faith to be true disciples of Jesus. Oh Holy Spirit, purify our hearts so we can follow Jesus with faithful love, on 'example of the saints!
29 / 4 Sun IVa T.P. Year B [IV]
At 4.8 to 12, Ps 117, 1 John 3.1 to 2; Jn 10:11-18
The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep John 10:11
The Good Shepherd is Jesus, he gave his life to death on the cross for us to know the Father and bring us to him. Moved by the Spirit many in the Church were true "pastors." Do not forget the Bishop Luigi Padovese, who gave his life as a zealous pastor of the Church. Today we remember well St. Catherine, who is consumed for the sanctity and unity of the Church. Thank you, Jesus, witnesses who have completed their "Easter" and now sing with you the eternal Alleluia!
30 / 4 Mon IVa T.P. [IV]
(Mf: St. Pius V, Pope, † 1572; Just dioceses. TN: m: S. Massenza)
At 11.1 to 18; Sal 41-42, Jn 10.1-10
To the pagans too, God has granted repentance At 11.18
This exclamation of joy from the mouth of the hearers of Peter is valid today. Instead of dropping arms in the face of our weakness or inability of our neighbour, we renew our faith in the power conversion contained in the death and resurrection of Jesus and our sharing in his sufferings, and find courage and joy.
