Homilies: 4th Sunday of Lent, Year A

My homily for the 4th Sunday of Lent (Year A) as preached in an empty Sacred Heart Cathedral, Hamilton as Mass was celebrated at 9.30 am in the absence of the assembly.

The readings proclaimed were 1 Samuel 16:1, 6-7, 10-13; Ephesians5:8-14; John 9:1-41.

“The journey of the man born blind and the authorities stand in stark contrast to each other. One moves from physical blindness, to sight, to spiritual awareness; the other moves from physical sight deeper into darkness brought about by attempts to deny the reality staring them in the face. In a time when the world – and the Church – is confronted by pandemic, we could be tempted to deny the facts and reality which we face. Or we could seek to allow God to draw us into a spiritual awakening that focuses on the revelation of God in the here and now. The choice is ours.”
