Homily from the Third Sunday of Easter.

“The reason we are celebrating is what we heard in the Gospel today: This Guy, who was dead, walks into this room, and He’s not limping in, He is resurrected, He is transformed, and He says, ‘Look at my hands. Look at my feet. The nail marks? I died, I conquered death for you.’ …The fact that Christ conquered death and no matter what kind of test or paper or terrible roommate you might have, no matter what kind of real suffering and real pain you might have in your life right now, Christ has conquered your sin, He has conquered your sorrow, He has conquered what could conquer you.”
