Gospel MK 16:9-15

When Jesus had risen, early on the first day of the week,
he appeared first to Mary Magdalene,
out of whom he had driven seven demons.
She went and told his companions who were mourning and weeping.
When they heard that he was alive
and had been seen by her, they did not believe.

After this he appeared in another form
to two of them walking along on their way to the country.
They returned and told the others;
but they did not believe them either.

But later, as the Eleven were at table, he appeared to them
and rebuked them for their unbelief and hardness of heart
because they had not believed those
who saw him after he had been raised.
He said to them, “Go into the whole world
and proclaim the Gospel to every creature.”

  1. I so appreciate your homilies each day. Your way of preaching is very comforting & reassuring.
    I’m not sure how I came to be aware of your website, except God’s providence. Back in 2016-Aug.-Dec. I was on a sabbatical at Mercy Center & a group of us often attended Mass at your parish. So listening to you has a special connection for me. I remember introducing myself to you & telling you I knew one of your priests, Chuck Lavely. God is always full of surprises.
    May God’s blessings be with you during these challenging days.

  2. Thank you Father for helping us to understand that God is with us and is there to help us through all our suffering, trials, and joys. It is not easy for us to understand so we have to work on it all the time. You have taught us that God is always there. Thank you and Peace and Joy to you and all the Priests of CSC.
