Now it’s Your Turn to Rise from the Dead | #924

Fr. Joel Homilies

Easter – There are signs of new life all around us. Where have you experienced death and hopelessness? God wants to give you new life right in your place of darkness. Practice dying, practice rising from the dead, and practice going to heaven.

The Cross in the Ashes | #923

Fr. Joel Homilies
