“The Way, The Truth, and The Life (John 14: 1-12)” by Fr. Jim Willig

This is the 5th Sunday of Easter. The Gospel this week focuses on the time when Jesus is telling his disciples that he is leaving. Jesus explains that he is going to prepare a place for them and then promises to return for them.

Jesus tells His disciples they know the way. Thomas says in confusion, “we do not know where you are going, so how could we know the way.” Jesus replies “I am the way, the truth and the life!”

“The Good Shepherd (John 10: 27-30)” by Fr. Jim Willig

This Sunday is often referred to as Good Shepherd Sunday. The Gospel of John highlights Jesus as the Good Shepherd. In this Gospel Study, Fr. Jim compares us to sheep. This is both humorous and humbling. Sheep are not the smartest animals in the pen!

The blessing is that as His sheep, we all know the voice of our Shepherd who is leading us; and the Shepherd knows each of us by name.

“The Road to Emmaus (Luke 24: 13-35)” by Fr. Jim Willig

The Gospel this week is “The Road to Emmaus” according to Luke. It is the time when two disciples left Jerusalem in great despair because of the crucifixion of Jesus.  They had heard about the Resurrection but did not believe. They meet a stranger along the way, and did not realize it is their Messiah until the breaking of the bread.

“Doubting Thomas (John 20: 19-31)” by Fr. Jim Willig and “Divine Mercy Sunday” by Fr. Michael Sparough

This Sunday is Divine Mercy Sunday and the Gospel is from John. This Scripture describes the time following the Resurrection when Jesus appeared to His Apostles in the upper room. Thomas was not present at this time.

When Thomas returned, the other disciples told him about Jesus’ appearance. Thomas did not believe them and made the statement, “Unless I see the mark of the nails in his hands and put my finger into the nail marks and put my hand into his side, I will not believe.”

When Jesus returned and invited Thomas to do as he had stated, Thomas believed. Jesus then said, “Blessed are those who have not seen and have believed.”

Fr. Jim Willig gives a very emotional homily based on the life of another Tommy. Fr. Jim feels his own mortality as he shares this heartfelt story.

Fr. Michael Sparough not only reads the Gospel for us, but he also shares Pope Francis’ homily from Divine Mercy Sunday in 2014.

“Come Alive (John 11: 1-45)” by Fr. Jim Willig

This is the fifth Sunday of Lent. The Gospel this week is from John, and it highlights the story of Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead. Fr. Jim points out that John shares miracles in his Gospel to serve as signs from God. The resuscitation of Lazarus was a sign of the forthcoming death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Fr. Jim also shares the insight that we are all ‘Lazarus’ whom the Lord is calling out to live a greater life with Him.

God Bless You!
