Homily from the Mass of Easter Sunday.
“If the only thing keeping me from getting to Mass on Sunday is that it’s an obligation, I have a bigger problem than an obligation. My problem is that I don’t actually believe that Jesus Christ is risen from the dead. I don’t actually believe that the Eucharist is truly Jesus Christ’s Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity. It’s of relevant importance to me. …When I had a choice, when I could have chosen, when I set up my schedule, did I fit the Lord into what I wanted to do? Or did I build my life around this truth: that Jesus Christ is risen from the dead?”
