5th Sunday of Easter
Originally delivered on May 9, 1993
Readings: Acts 6:1-7; Peter 2: 4-9; John 14:1-12
In today’s Gospel we are reminded about our own Christian challenge through the disciple Thomas. Fr. Healy reminds us that we are a priestly people called to be His consecrated people on earth, both in the Gospels and in Vatican II. We must seek, therefore, to bring harmony wherever there is strife throughout the world. Perhaps, like Thomas, we prefer to be confused, or to hope that others, including the Church hierarchy, will solve the world’s problems. But we are holy people, a royal nation, to give back all that is His.
