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.)
Homily – 7th Sunday of the Year
– Sunday before Ash Wednesday, 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.
