Homilies for Good Friday and Resurrection Sunday

Greetings,

2 April 2021 - Good Friday - Pilate's Political Calculus - John 19 vs 12-22

https://youtu.be/R2aw5NuasDw


4 April 2021 Resurrection Sunday - 'and Peter' - Mark 16 vs 1-8

https://youtu.be/v6nRMi_yyiQ

Mark's simple account of the resurrection completes his gospel. It has the ring of authenticity and vitality to it, even though the risen Christ is never seen. It is also intensely redemptive, as we will see in the reference to Peter.

Every blessing to you in this Holy Week.
