Homilies from April 2023
On the road to Emmaus, Jesus opened the Scriptures to the disciples with which he was walking. How can others encounter Jesus today? Fr. Ken reminds us that we our Christ’s body on earth – and we can allow others to encounter Jesus.
When we look into the wounds of Jesus, as St. Thomas did, we see the heart of God. Fr. Mark describes the unfathomable mercy of Jesus, our Lord and our God.
On Easter Sunday, Fr. Ken reminds us that the same power that raised Christ from the dead lives in us!
How do we know if Jesus rose from the dead if we did not witness it ourselves? As Fr. Mark explains at the Easter Vigil, the case for Christ’s resurrection is clear – hundreds of people witnessed it with their own eyes. Christ is truly risen!
Have you ever wondered, if God is all-powerful, why did Jesus have to die for our sins? Why was it necessary for him to become human and be crucified to save us? On Good Friday, Fr. Ken explains how the incarnation and sacrifice of Jesus was an act of love.
As we begin the Triduum; on Holy Thursday, we celebrate the institution of the Eucharist and the priesthood. Fr. Roger reminds us that the theme of these three days is love. For the full Easter schedule, visit stmarysottawa.ca/easter.
