2nd Sunday of Easter SUNDAY, 19 APRIL 2020.

For the last four Sundays, since the present lock-down began, I have linked what I have said in the homily to the difficult and stressful situation we all are currently living  through. But for how long can I keep doing this? Well, for a while yet, I think. According to the documents of the Church, the purpose of the homily is to open up the Word and apply it to people’s lives. 

Commentators on radio and tv speak about the apostles, the disciples, and their “response” to
the Risen Lord.  CP and other women commentators have emphasised the men.
The stories of the women are very complex, very rich in theological challenge, and full of promise and surmise.  These women, in their diffferent experiences, offer a theological platform 
for deep reflection.
We might begin by asking why did heaven in all four Gospel to speak first to women about resurrection.
 
A thought for the day.
 
Joseph O’Hanlon.
