Here’s my homily for Good Friday this year. I was preaching at Light to the Nations, which is a biennial pilgrimage held by the Disciples of Jesus Community. The homily was recorded and you can listen to it on the CRADIO website here.
I haven’t been posting too much lately – I’m working on my PhD which, along with my responsibilities with the MGL formation program, doesn’t leave too much time for blogging. Seeing Swans will be back though! And I’ll keep posting the occasional talk here too. In the meantime, I’m using Twitter to send out the occasional message into the social media realm. So follow me there for updates on youth ministry, MGL stuff and my occasional thoughts about God, the world and the love in between.
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.
