Nov 03 – Homily – Fr Maximilian W: Great Hope
Homily #141103n ( 04min) Play - As we remember the dead of the Franciscan Order, we also consider our own resurrection in Christ. We in the Church Militant still have to make the life-long choice of our free will to love God and neighbor, and by neighbors we also include the Church Suffering in Purgatory. Be being reminded of them and of the Church Triumphant in heaven, we can better appreciate the great hope which is ours as Catholic Christians.
