“Distress, Royalty, Endurance”

For the follower of Jesus, it can be a very distressing world to live in.  Yet we are people of the King, we share his kingship, his royalty. And while we see the darkness that is around us, and how distressing it can be; never the less the royalty of God burns within us and shines in that darkness.  This kingship reminds us that contentment, holiness, peace, lies not in what is ours but in who’s we are.   A homily for Divine Mercy Sunday, the 2nd Sunday of Easter, April 7th, 2013.

“Distress, Royalty, Endurance”:

This Homily was given at Holy Family Catholic Church, 3450 Sycamore Dr., Stow Ohio, where I serve as a Permanent Deacon. If you are traveling through our area, or live nearby and don’t have a church home, please stop in and join us. Weekend Masses are at 5:00PM on Saturday, 7:30AM, 9:30AM, and 11:30AM every Sunday. We also have a 5:00PM Sunday Mass on the second Sunday of each month that is geared towards our teenage members but all are welcome. More information on our parish, our K-8 Blue Ribbon school, and our over 70 ministries and activities can be found at The Holy Family website.
