Third Sunday After Easter 2018
The Collect of the Mass for the Third Sunday after Easter instructs us to think of ourselves as passing through this life on the way to eternity. The Gospel recounts the words of Our Lord at the Last Supper about the little while before the apostles will see Him again. In comparison to eternity our lives are only a little while. We must pray and be encouraged that our faithfulness for just a little while will gain us the happiness of heaven.
