You Won’t Always Be a Caterpillar (#723, Easter 2)

Fr. Joel Homilies

Divine Mercy / Second Sunday of Easter (Year A) • Our scriptures show us the early Church: called together by Christ, gathered around the Risen Lord, filled with the Holy Spirit, and sent on mission. We need to lead others to faith.

Faith gives us a glimpse of our final destiny. We are like caterpillars preparing for a transformation into butterflies. Heaven wants you to know, “Don’t worry, it will be OK. You look great as a butterfly. Even your wounds are glorious.”

(23 Apr 2017)

Point to Ponder: What do we have to do to prepare for the transformation?

Point to Discuss: Talk to a friend about a struggle in your life that turned out to be a huge blessing. How does this experience strength your faith as face the next struggle?
