On the second Sunday of the season of Easter, we began a new series exploring the Kingdom of God. Father Michael helped us see how Jesus came to bring the Kingdom of God right into the midst of the clashing kingdoms of this world, the flesh, and the devil. He then led us through a meditation on The Two Standards, in which we join Jesus as he is tempted in the wilderness and as he reveals himself to his disciple Thomas in a tangible way.

Kingdom Practices
Did you sense any specific invitation from God during the meditation on the Two Standards? If so, commit to respond to God’s invitation for you. Also, consider practicing the reflection on the Kingdom of God in this daily office evening prayer.
