(John 1)

“Beloved, what we have heard, seen with our eyes and touched with our hands, we proclaim to you.”

John is assuring his disciples that the Jesus he knew, touched, ate with and held in his arms, would be the same Jesus he would share with them.

Lord God, after the Ascension of your Son, his daily presence was greatly missed among the disciples. They needed someone to lift their spirits and warm their hearts.
