Homilies: The Presentation of the Lord, Year A

My homily for the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord (Year A) as preached during the 5 pm Mass in Sacred Heart Cathedral, Hamilton.

The readings were Malachi 3:1-4; Hebrews 2:14-18; Luke 2:22-40.

“When the Lord appears in the Temple he does so as ‘one like us’ not as a distant external judge. In doing so, we are to be forever the brothers and sisters of Jesus called to be a ‘light to the nations’.”
