Do You Have a Minute?

Do You Have a Minute?

Union with God

Union with God

“It is not good for the man to be alone; let us make him a partner like himself.”

Thomas Sunday

Thomas Sunday

Thomas is frequently the object of much opprobrium for his disbelief, as if all of us who enjoy pointing the finger at him aren’t more guilty than he was. And yet he is rightly blamed.

In Resurrectione Domini Nostri Jesu Christi

In Resurrectione Domini Nostri Jesu Christi

We are all of us here this morning to celebrate the rising of our Lord Jesus Christ from the dead. This is not a metaphorical event, a wish of believers transposed onto reality, but the real reunion of His human soul returning from Limbo with His human body lying in the Holy Sepulcher. It is into this historical event that we are incorporated, that we partake and claim as our own identity, through holy baptism.

Two Reactions to Resurrection

Rising from the dead is an experience not just of Christ on Easter morning, nor of mankind as a whole on the Last Day, but of everyone who, like the women in the Gospel, departs from the tomb, the place needed on account of sin’s just punishment; departs from the death of sin through the mercy and forgiveness of Christ; departs quickly because we should never delay our conversion or dawdle in our iniquity.
