Following a 10-day period of national mourning in South Africa after the death of Winnie Madikizela Mandela, Ricardo da Silva SJ reflects on the strength of memories.  Memories of a mourning nation as they remember the controversial life of “The Mother of the Nation”. The memories of St Peter as he preaches about repentance and salvation to the first Christian communities. The memories told by the disciples as they gather in the upper room to share their experiences of their friend Jesus. And, the memories that we hold of Jesus, today, as a people of the Resurrection.

Listen to this week’s reflection, now, to hear what Ricardo suggests we can learn from these memories after hearing the readings at our liturgies this Sunday.

You can find the texts that this reflection is based on in your bible, or simply just hover your mouse over the following references and the texts will also appear:

Acts 3:13-15, 17-19; Psalm 4;2, 4, 7-8, 9; 1 John 2:1-5A & Luke 24:35-48
