Homily: Easter Sunday

What does Resurrection look like? I don’t mean resuscitation – we can all work out what that looks like. Resuscitation changed nothing: it is the same body; the same life; the same future. When Lazarus was resuscitated by his friend Jesus, it was certainly a miraculous thing. But Lazarus himself was the same Lazarus. No one wondered who emerged from the tomb, no one questioned if it was him. 

Homily: Good Friday

It is striking how much of the Lord’s passion happened at night. It was at night that he foreshadowed his death in the Eucharistic last meal. It was at night when Judas stood before him offering a betrayer’s kiss. It was at night that he was arrested and presented to the religious and civil authorities. And even when it was supposed to be the blaze of a noonday sun, we are told in one of the gospels that from the sixth hour until the ninth hour, darkness came over the world as the Messiah died on a cross.
