Homily for March 30, 2016. Easter Wednesday. Bible Study: Acts 10:1-10 and Luke 24:13 -35. Going through our readings this morning, we can see that a lot went into the training of the disciples of Jesus before they became Great Apostles. In Mark chapter 9, we read about an embarrassing episode wherein a man brought his son to the disciples of Jesus for healing because the boy was possessed with an evil spirit but they couldn’t. Surprisingly, as we see in our first reading this morning, Peter and John met a crippled man by the Beautiful Gate who was begging for alms and they decided to give him the best gift ever; the gift of his healing.
