The Resurrection and the Glory of Liturgy
Welp, it’s true. I’ve been absent from much in the way of a web presence for the last 2 years. I think I’m better for it actually. It was not intentional but the Lord has been doing some remarkable things in my life. I have a lot I’d love to share, and I mean, a LOT.
First, I’m going to start posting homilies regularly again. This is my Easter Homily this year, and God has been speaking to me a lot lately about how He works in Liturgy. Before you go *blech* and turn your nose, let me just say that this is something we all need to appreciate more. I often wondered why on earth liturgy is even a thing, other than just a way of having a ritual gathering, only this one has evolved over many years. Nope. Nope nope nope. I mean that’s a very, VERY tiny part of it. But liturgy is far greater and more significant to our whole existence than I ever anticipated. It’s a pretty big deal. I’m barely gonna touch on it in this homily, but expect to hear more. I am praying and reading about this stuff and it is solid stuff my friends. You’re gonna love it.
Anyway, hope you enjoy the homily, and I will try to get these uploaded a little closer to Sunday in the future. Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below! 🙂
thatt is very good to have you back and been praying for you even though you were not there. thank you will wait for the next homily…
The Alleluia songs which were not sung in the Liturgies during the Lenten Season have now started echoing with the celebration of Easter, the resurrection of our Lord and Saviour.“ I am the resurrection and the life. Those who believe in me, even though they die, will live” (Jn. 11,25).Our glory is in our Lord Jesus Christ: in His death on the Cross and in His resurrection. St. Paul has said: “ If Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile and you are still in your sins
Indeed, and the glory of the liturgy is Jesus Christ Himself. The purpose of the liturgy is to glorify God. 🙂
