DOES JESUS STILL NEED TO EAT? – Simple Concepts

Homily
3rd Sunday of Easter – B
——–
1 John 2:1-5

Jesus ate in the presence of his Disciples but, being human, does Jesus still need to eat?

Fr. Bill discusses two simple concepts regarding faith and how St. Joseph is a prime example of fidelity to both.

Best Evidence of the Greatest Cliffhanger – The Resurrection of Jesus

There is no first hand account of the Resurrection of Jesus, even in the Bible.  Yet billions today and even more over the past 2000 years believe it – some even to the point of sacrificing their lives rather than renounce it.
Join Fr. Bill’s Easter Podcast as he ponders the presumed lack of evidence, why so many have come to believe in it, and why those who do not believe are still kept on edge by the greatest event of human history.

“THE FREEDOM TRILOGY” – Good Movies to Watch for Holy Week and Easter

While many like to turn to movies about Jesus during Holy Week, Easter Sunday and the Easter Season, Fr. Bill makes a suggestion of a “trilogy” of movies that deal with the issue of Freedom, with a final resolution on how true Freedom is grounded in Faith in Christ.

Join Fr. Bill as he discusses three unlikely films which build one upon the other to a climax in the third movie on where true freedom must be grounded if it is to lead to an end of tyranny and worldly oppression.

Homily
6th Sunday of Easter – A

Jesus Commands us to “Love”, to “Live in my Love”, but what did he mean to Love — especially in light of modern, secular, socio-political notions of Love.

The Emperor’s New Virus – Challenging the “Experts”

Homily
5th Sunday of EASTER – A

Is it wrong to challenge authority?
Is it Christian to question our leaders, religious and civil?
Who do we think we are when we question “experts” in Science, Medicine or any field of expertise?

Fr. Bill, in his Sunday Homily, addresses the manner in which we, as Christians, are called, and expected, to ask questions, challenge “experts” and thereby expose frauds in our midst.

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.)
