A lot of people got engaged this Christmas. And guess who they called right afterward? Yep, me (or one of the other priests in their life). They are arranging for weddings. What they find out after inquirying with someone like me is that, while we're in the wedding business we are really all about marriage.
This week's wedding feast at Cana is a great opportunity for us to think about God's wedding feast. Yes, God is married and guess who's the lucky bride - US! Another manifestation of the love of God is our status as the bride of Christ and the invitation to the wedding feast of the Lamb.
Last week's homily is available at the "Estok Homily Library" or by following this link.
Get into the ring! How this works...
This is easy! Each week on Thursday I post my homily idea...my main focus for preaching this coming Sunday. What I am hoping for is a reaction from people in the pews. Does my "focus" connect with your daily life, faith, and experience? Or not? Either affirm the direction I am going in (by giving me an example from your life) or challenge me, ask for clarification! Questions are the best! Reaction rather than reflection is what I'm looking for here. Don't be afraid, get in the ring. Ole!
