Finally We Can Be Together in Flesh and Blood | #1034

Fr. Joel Homilies

Corpus Christi – For 12 weeks we could only be together virtually. Now we can be together in flesh and blood. God desires to be with you in the flesh, so he created the Eucharist. Don’t just take Communion; enter into Communion with the God who loves you.

Fr. Joel Homilies

Easter 3 – I dropped my “God will handle your problems” mug and the handle broke right off. Did God let me down? No! Our struggles and sufferings are a participation in the Paschal Mystery. You walked with Jesus and now he walks with you. God’s got this!

Fr. Joel Homilies
