May 04 – Homily – Fr John Joseph: Resurrection of Hope
Homily #140504b ( 15min) Play - Fr. John Joseph on the remedy for the sorrow in our life which is the hope that is enshrined in the resurrection where Our Lord rises from the grim shadows of the crucifixion to the bright light of Easter, shining a light on the promise of eternal life for those who believe in Him. This dawning of great joy in the midst of despair is what the disciples on the road to Emmaus experienced when the resurrected Christ made Himself manifest to them. He bases these reflection on the writing of Pope Benedict XVI.
