I THOUGHT YOU SHOULD KNOW | The kingdom of heaven is alive in our midst

The readings for the Fifth Sunday of Easter are intended to help us to see the kingdom of God, not only in the next life, but also in our present life.

Beginning with the Gospel, we see Jesus try to allay the fears of the apostles, telling them He must go away to prepare a place for them and then He will return. "Do not let your hearts be troubled. You have faith in God; have faith also in me." He acknowledges their faith in God, and now He asks them to have that same faith in Him.
