Homily from Holy Saturday, the Easter Vigil.
Christianity is an historical religion that is not based on feelings, philosophies, or myths. It is based on a fact: the fact of the resurrection of Jesus. The one thing that changes everything.
These homilies are from Fr. Mike’s Masses during the Easter Triduum during the COVID-19 pandemic. Only three people attended Mass in the chapel at our Newman house in Duluth, but the hundreds of thousands of households joined via YouTube live streams. You can watch the full liturgies here (Holy Thursday, Good Friday, Easter Vigil, Easter Sunday), or listen to just the homilies below.
