Fr. Lenny’s Sermon – Ascension & Seventh Sunday in Easter – 2017

One theme that pops up in our readings today is how Christ is glorified in his people. Of course, that ties in with the larger summons to seek and serve Christ is all people – as we promised in our baptismal covenant. So we need to do our part to look for Jesus in everyone, plus show that same same Jesus to everyone.

Also, take a moment to reflect on how Jesus fulfills God’s promises in his Ascension back to heaven, both in what he does for us and what he does in us.

Fr. Lenny’s Sermon – Fifth Sunday in Easter – 2017

Jesus reveals himself to be the way, the truth, and life in our Gospel lesson today. Because of who our Lord is and what he done, no other holy person could hold a candle to how he connects us to our Heavenly and the promises he grants us.

Fr. Lenny’s Sermon – Fourth Sunday in Easter – 2017

Sorry for being a little late on my sermon posting.  This week of the Good Shepherd (see the collect for the Fourth Sunday), Jesus reveals himself in John’s Gospel to be the “gate” for God’s sheepfold.  Let us rejoice in the protection, provision, and guidance our Lord provides for us as part of his flock.

Fr. Lenny’s Sermon – Fifth Sunday in Lent – 2017

As we wind down Lent and enter Holy Week, the lectionary presents readings to stoke our hearts’ flames with hope in anticipation of the resurrection!  And that hope stirs us to genuinely pursue God’s call to care for people in body as much as soul, and to care for creation as much as people.

On this Laetare Sunday, we rejoice over the lessons that describe our Lord as a Divine Shepherd of Light.  May we all find reason to be glad in someone who can enlighten us, guide, and free us from sin and death!
