A NEW BEGINNING

Frightened by Jesus’ execution, the disciples went into hiding in a safe house. They stayed together, but this time Jesus was not with them. Their community, for the first time, felt Jesus’ absence. It was such a sense of emptiness. They could no longer listen to Jesus’ fiery words or witness the way he blessed the crowds that followed him everywhere. Where would they now go?
In Jerusalemmust have been getting dark– as well as in their hearts. Nobody could be of any comfort to them. Little by little, all of them were overcome by fear and Jesus was not there to encourage them. The only thing they could do, “for fear of the Jews”, was to lock the doors of the room. They could not even think of going out to preach thekingdom ofGod and bring solace to those in need. Without Jesus, how could they preach the Good News?
John the Evangelist describes masterfully the transformation that took place in the disciples the moment Jesus, in his new life, makes himself present in their midst. The Risen one becomes again the centre of his community of followers. That should be the case for all of us forever. With Jesus everything is possible: freedom from fear, doors open and going out to preach the Gospel.
According to the narrative, the first thing that Jesus brought to that community was his peace. They were not scolded for having abandoned Him, no complaint or reprimand. “Peace be with you,” He said, and they were overjoyed at seeing him. The disciples felt his creative encouragement. Everything started again. Inspired by his Spirit, they would take up the same project that Jesus had received from his Father and continue the work for centuries to come.
What the Church needs today is not religious reforms and a call to communion in faith and practice. We really need to experience a “new beginning” in our communities, starting with the living presence of Jesus in our midst. Jesus alone should be at the centre of our Church. Jesus alone can promote such communion. Jesus alone can renew our hearts.
New plans and new institutions are not enough. Only Jesus can start changes in our horizon, remove our fears and doubts, create a new climate of peace and serenity that all of us need in order to open the doors and share the Good News with the rest of men and women of our times.
But we have to learn how to welcome his presence in our midst. When Jesus returned, after eight days, the evangelist says that the doors were shut. It was not Thomas alone that had to learn to believe in the Risen one. The other disciples, too, had to learn to dispel their doubts and fears that had kept them locked behind doors – instead of going out to preach the Good News.

JESUS WILL SAVE THE CHURCH

Terrified by Jesus’ execution, the disciples take refuge in a familiar house. Once again they are together, but Jesus isn’t with them. In the community there’s a hole that no one can fill. They lack Jesus. Whom will they follow now? What will they be able to do without him? «It’s getting dark» in Jerusalem and also in the disciples’ hearts.
They are inside the house «with the doors locked». It is a community without mission and without vision, closed in on itself, without capability of welcome. No one’s thinking about heading out on the road to announce God’s Reign or to bring healing to people’s lives. With the doors locked it’s not possible to draw near to the suffering of people.
The disciples are full of «fear of the Jews». It’s a community paralyzed by fear, defensive. They see only hostility and rejection on every side. With fear it’s not possible to love the world as Jesus loved it, nor is it possible to instill encouragement and hope in anyone.
All of a sudden the Risen Jesus takes the initiative. He comes to rescue his followers. «He came into the house and stood in their midst». The little community begins to be transformed. From fear they pass to the peace that Jesus instills in them. From the darkness of night they pass to the joy of returning to see him full of life. From the locked doors they soon pass to announce the Good News of Jesus everywhere.
Jesus speaks to them, putting his full confidence in those poor men: «As the Father has sent me, so I also send you». He doesn’t tell them whom they need to approach, what they need to announce or how they need to act. That’s what they’ve already been able to learn from him on the roads of Galilee. They will be in the world as he has been in the world.
Jesus knows his disciples’ frailty. Many times he has criticized their small and faltering faith. They need the power of his Spirit in order to complete his mission. That’s why he does a special gesture to them. He doesn’t impose his hands or bless them as he did for the sick. He breathes his breath over them and tells them: «Receive the Holy Spirit».
Only Jesus will save the Church. Only he will free us from the fears that paralyze us, break the worn-out structures that we try to enclose him in, open so many doors that we have gone about closing throughout the centuries, straighten so many paths that have led us away from him.
What he asks of us is to revive all the more in the whole Church a trust in the Risen Jesus, mobilize ourselves to fearlessly put him in the center of our parishes and communities, and concentrate all our efforts in listening well to what his Spirit is saying to his followers today.
