We say goodbye to this year’s Easter Season and to Luke's grand account of Paul's travels and preaching. Paul, awaiting his trial and execution, was at peace because he had remained true both to his ancestral customs and to his Christ.
A well, we say goodbye to St. John as he ends his days on the Island of Patmos. His mind was joyfully going over the many things that he witnessed Jesus doing and saying. He assures us that by believing in Jesus as the Messiah and the Son of God, we will share in his life.
