Fifth Sunday of Easter

The gospel for this weekend is the most often selected text for funerals. It is so consoling, so encouraging, so comforting. It is a good message for you and me to hear during this time of transition. Not only do individuals grieve, but so do families, parishes, and groups. The Johannine Jesus offers us a future full of hope and promise, even peace. So, let our hearts not be troubled as we prepare to leave each other. Let us have faith in God and in the Risen Lord for He is the way, the truth, and the life.

Grace and Peace, Father Reggie
