Homily for Easter Sunday, April 4, 2021
We live in a world where brokenness is all around us. There is the unrest in Myanmar. There is the pandemic, which despite our fatigue is still with us. There is violence. There are mental health issues, especially among young adults that are growing exponentially. And as Cardinal Cantalamessa mentioned in his homily on Good Friday, even the Church is beset by ideological battles that have nothing to do with dogma. This is a time when we must stress the unity that is the charism we are called to cooperate with the Holy Spirit to bring about in our world. Jesus spent his life with the broken, and his resurrection is the proof that brokenness, sin and death do not have the last word.
