In the first reading we have the idea of an early sermon attributed to Simon Peter. Christians are always struggling to express the mysteries of their beliefs – we see here an antisemitism in the accusation against the Jews, but it also our belief that God can create good even out of our errors – even life out of death!
For the second reading we have more of the sermon we had last week addressed to those being baptised; the new life is offered through the completed life of Jesus – the precious blood refers to the holy life that Christ lived and still lives in us celebrated in the Lord’s supper.
In the Gospel we hear the delightful story that reminds us that even the stranger that we interact with or the person we share food with is for us where Christ is to be encountered, for He lives now in all!
