In this homily from the 10:30 AM Mass at Our Lady of Good Counsel Church for Easter, Fr. Simoneau tells the congregants that they have reason to hope. Fr. John tells us that we should be able to be recognized as followers of Christ each day, and have no reason to be ashamed. He points out that the world is in the state that it is in due to continued doubt that Christ is the key to happiness.
Fr. Simoneau preached at all of the weekend Masses this past weekend to continue the Rerouting series. Fr. John looks at what it means to cross the "border" while debunking the voices we may hear along the way. Fr. John uses the words of Pope Benedict XVI to remind the congregants that we have nothing to lose by letting Christ in our lives. In addition to the Sunday homilies, the parish is hosting Wednesday evening Rerouting Deeper Dive sessions to help pave the way. Resources for Rerouting, including video taped sessions and outlines, may be found on the parish website.
