Be a Living Witness to the Resurrection | BP#824

Fr. Joel Homilies 2 Comments

Easter, 3rd “Blizzard” Sunday (Year B) • How do we know for sure that Jesus rose from the dead? We know because eyewitnesses saw the risen Jesus and it changed their lives forever. The risen Jesus is still with us and He continues to change lives today. Where have you seen the Risen Jesus? How has He changed your life? People will believe in the Resurrection when they see the transformation in us.

  • “Christianity, if false, is of no importance, and if true, of infinite importance. The only thing it cannot be is moderately important.” C.S. Lewis from BrainyQuote
    Do you treat the Christian faith as if it were moderately important?
  • Watch Megyn Kelly’s conversation with Nancy Foytik.
    Has God ever told you it would be OK? What happened?
  • Where did you see the risen Jesus recently?

Thank you to the 7 parishioners that braved the snownami to attend Mass in person –and spent hours getting home again. And thanks to everyone who stayed safely at home and tuned in on Facebook Live because the weekend Masses were canceled.

  1. WOW! Probably the most productive and inspirational 17 minutes I’ve spent on Facebook or social media ever. My wife and I could not attend Holy Mass at St.Norbert Abbey on April 15th (I was scheduled to lector), and so I found this site via The Compass that arrived today. Your Resurrection story and stories within the story gave me much to think about. Sure I have my doubts about the Resurrection from time to time, as I think most Catholics have. You presented in your well-thought-out and delivered “Blizzard Homily” very logical and plausible support for the Risen Christ not being a hoax, or in this time and age, fake news! You hit a home run, Fr. Joel. Thank you and thanks be to God for you. Your parishioners are so fortunate to have you leading them. I (we) met you once at Nicolet in De Pere; you were with your brother. I hope our paths cross again. Maybe at some Knights of Columbus event or diocesan function. God Bless and thanks again. You rocked it!
