Views 2650


Fr Terrance gives the homily at Bloomington, IN on Dec 18 on how St Matthew and St Luke give a different focus on the Advent events. Luke shows the more serene welcoming of Christ whereas Matthew on how he he is rejected. In Luke focuses on Mary as Ark of the New Covenant, paralleling the Old Testament. In Matthew the person of St. Joseph is more central. As such Mary focusing on Mary brings more serenity. Come Jesus through Mary.
