John 20:19-23

The disciples are hiding behind locked doors. Jesus appears in their midst and twice offers them words of peace. It is now time for them to come out of hiding and go out to continue the mission he began. Jesus breathes on them in the same way the Father breathed life into the first human. They are filled with his Spirit.

I was an infant when baptized and an early adolescent when confirmed. It has been throughout my adult life that I begin to grasp the life breath of your Spirit in me.
