Bishop Bill’s homily for the 5th Sunday of Easter (Year A) as preached during the live-streamed 9.30 am Mass from an all-but-empty Sacred Heart Cathedral, Hamilton.
The readings proclaimed were Acts 6:1-7; 1 Peter 2:4-9; John 14:1-12.
“As Christians we do not have to struggle with an ‘idea’ of God. We have ‘seen’ God, as our Scriptures remind us. Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life, and through Jesus Christ we know God, not just in thought but in reality. As Christians, as Catholics, we cannot talk about God except by talking about Jesus.”
