Discussion Questions: Week of April 18, 2021

This week’s discussion questions are based on the First Reading found at Acts of the Apostles 3:13-15, 17-19 on the Second Reading found at 1 John 2:1-5a, and on the Gospel found at Luke 24:35-48

  • In the First Reading, St. Peter excuses people for killing Christ because they acted in ignorance.  However, he commands them to act on the truth that has now been revealed to them by repenting and believing in the Gospel.  As you learn about and grow in your faith, of which truths have you become aware?  Do you feel you are able to incorporate them into your life?

  • In the Second Reading, St. John tells us that “whoever keeps his word, the love of God is truly perfected in him.” Are you aware of the commandments of God throughout your day? When was the last time you prayed through an examination of conscience?

  • In today’s Gospel, Jesus reveals Himself to His disciples. They do not recognize Him at first so He meets them in a way that they can really see Him.  Why do you think the disciples did not recognize Jesus?

  • What helps you recognize that it is Jesus who is walking alongside you when you are discouraged or confused? 

  • If Jesus were to walk a few miles with you today, what would you talk with Him about? 

  • We hear in the First Reading and in the Gospel the word “witness.” What does this word mean? How are you a witness to your faith each day?
