Thomas, the First Theologian

St. Thomas the Apostle
Homily for the 2nd Sunday of Easter
(Divine Mercy Sunday)

Why do we need to give St. Thomas a long needed reprieve from his designation as “The Doubter”? How are we, or are we not included in the Beatitude Jesus gives to Thomas? – “Blessed are they who have not seen but still believe.” Fr. Bill discusses the well known story of Jesus’ Resurrection.

(Sorry if the sound seems a little odd. Tried a new setting. Will be going back to the old one.)

Holy Week in a Time of Pandemic

Homily for Passion Sunday – 2020

How do the Seven Sacraments, starting with Baptism, reflect the Life of Jesus as we prepare for Eternal Life?

A “DARKNESS” IN THE LIGHT – The Epiphany

Homily – Epiphany Sunday, 2020

Both Matthew and Luke present a more foreboding tale as part of their Infancy Narratives. Both involve a revelation or Epiphany, of Jesus.

Fr. Bill preaches both “Epiphanies” and discusses how they constitute a darker side to the Birth of Jesus, and a sober reminder of who it is whose birth we celebrate.
