Jesus has risen. He has truly risen. For this we look not just to a happy circumstance, but to the reality that what this means for our life. We now have a God in whom we can place our trust. Our God has saved us from despair and from the consideration of doubt about what we have to look forward to in this life. God has revealed His love for us through Jesus Christ--by placing our life in the hands of Jesus we are filled with hope that God will always remain close to us and be present to us in difficulties and in joys. Jesus, you are our Lord and in You we profess the fullness of our trust! Click here for the full text of my Easter Sunday Homily.
