Easter Vigil Homily 2011

Last week’s post was a reflection upon the Crucifixion of Jesus, so this week I thought I’d  post this homily from last year’s Easter vigil.  It comes from the Light to the Nations Pilgrimage, a biennial pilgrimage to the Redemptorist Monastery in Galong, NSW.  The pilgrimage is hosted by the Disciples of Jesus Covenant Community, and in 2011 approximately 900 people camped out and celebrated the Easter liturgies in a large tent.  Most of the congregation are young people, and they’re pretty rowdy, but that’s because there’s a fair bit of Easter joy going on. Hope you find the homily edifying.  As St Seraphim of Sarov would say, ‘My joy, Christ is Risen’.  Happy Easter.

The homily is in two YouTube clips.
