Fr. Joe Easter Vigil Homily, March 31, 2018

Why did God make us?

We were not created for a practical purpose.  It is really clear when we look at the book of Genesis and see the creation account, that this is true.  God created all the wonders that we live in and are part of and every thing God created did and does what they are created to do.  Then we entered the equation.

 

Easter Vigil Readings, March 31, 2018

The entire celebration of the Easter Vigil must take place at night, so that it begins after nightfall and ends before daybreak on Sunday.  This Vigil is arranged in four parts:

1.  Service of light and the Easter Proclamation

2.  Liturgy of the Word, the Church meditates on all the wonderful things God has done for his people from the beginning.

3.  As the day of resurrection approaches, new members of the Church are reborn in Baptism

4.  Liturgy of the Eucharist, the whole Church is called to the table the Lord prepared for his people through his Death and Resurrection.

Please click on the links below if you would like to hear the Liturgy of the Word.

Fr. Joe Homily, Good Friday

 

There is no greater indication of love, than through sacrifice.

 

God loves you.  What a powerful statement.  The love that our Lord has for us is not a daily decision, it is who he is.   We are loved by God.    When we doubt this, look at a that cross, that crucifix.  He not only said it, He proved it…we are worth all of his blood and all of his breath.
