Fr. Gerry's Weekly Homily

April 2017 Homilies

April 30, 2017.mp3  Today's Gospel (Luke 24:13-35) is the story of the Walk to Emmaus when two disciples unknowingly encounter the Risen Christ. Would you like Jesus to accompany you on the way? We need only have to make ourselves available to Him. He listens to each of us. What do you want your Eucharist to be? Invite Him.

April 23, 2017.mp3  Fr. Gerry shares some reflections from the priests' Retreat last week. He takes us on a journey of discovering the peace Christ offers to each of us. Jesus walked through a locked door to bring peace to the apostles. He will walk through locked doors and roll away boulders if we invite Him. Is this how we image God?

Easter Sunday 2017.mp3 — We pray everyone had a Blessed Easter Sunday. We continue to celebrate the Resurrection of Our Lord during this Octave of Easter. The Easter Mystery invites us to larger and greater belief. We believe one day we will come to the fullness of life through His Resurrection. Fr. Gerry ponders what it would have been like to be there at the Resurrection. He invites us to consider what stones we need to roll back that keep us from living a life in Christ.

April 2, 2017.mp3 Fr. Gerry reflects on the events of Jesus bringing his friend Lazarus back to life. Martha & Mary were distressed that Jesus wasn't with them to save their brother from death. This parable, too, portrays a progression of faith in coming to truly know Jesus Christ. He tenderly invites all to Faith in Him. Fr. Gerry invites us to explore some important questions: How do I feel when my loved ones die? What do I truly believe about life and resurrection?
