Bride and groom on church steps

Come to Mass and Hear Your Story (#624, Easter 5)

Fr. Joel Homilies

Fifth Sunday of Easter (Year C) featuring Deacon Michael: Mass is our story. Christ is the bridegroom; we are the bride. Our whole identity is formed by receiving the love that God pours out to us today and every day of our lives. “Love one another as I have loved you.” When was the last time your deeds inspired someone else to fall deeper in love with the Father?

(24 Apr 2016)

Point to Ponder: As you are kneeling after Communion close your eyes and say, “Father, I love you.” Take a moment to let the Father love you.

Point to Discuss: Ask your family: “Does the way I treat you reflect God’s love for you?”
