Homily for the 5th Sunday of Easter

 

Dearly Beloved, as we come to the 5th Sunday of Easter, we are again presented with a very powerful image of the vine. This imagery is the last in a series of 7 “I AM” statements from our Lord.  (Does anyone know any such passages in the gospel of John where Jesus used an “I AM” statement). We can go through them now.

 

1.  ‘I am the bread of life. (John 6:35)

2.  ‘I am the light of the world. (John 8:12)

3. “I am the door. (John 10:9)

Homily for 5th Sunday of Lent

 

Dearly Beloved, we gather on this 5th Sunday of Lent. Another great sign is given for our reflection. A great miracle. A dead man comes back to life. Death will continue to be our fiercest enemy.  How sad it is to lose a loved one. It’s more sad when we were not there in one way or another when they needed us. We had kept postponing our love, our attention, care etc. Hoping each day that we were going to make it up to them. Then suddenly we hear they are gone.  Dead.

Homily for 2nd Sunday of Lent

Genesis 22:1-2,9a,10-13,15-18; Romans 8:31b-34; Mark 9:2-10

Dearly Beloved, I wish to remind you again how you need to look at the readings throughout the season as one great symbol but with different events emphasizing and encouraging our need to pray, give alms, fast and do penance. These are great symbols for our Christian life.
