Lenten Rerun

All of the griefs and gratitudes, coordination and hospitality surrounding the three days of funeral liturgy for Fr. Bernard interrupted my ordinary rhythm of Sunday homily preparation. I'll have something simple to say by tonight, but I don't have a written and edited homily to post this week. I checked out what I had written three years ago for the third Sunday of Lent, cycle C, and I still like it, though the references to current events are now dated. Follow this link for my homily, "Burning Bush and Fruitful Tree."

no need to explain why you didn't have a new homily for this weekend, Fr. C! it's very understandable why you couldn't. you did an excellent job with all the coordination, hospitality, etc... for Fr. Bernard's funeral. i know he was probably looking down from heaven (i truly believe Fr. Bernie is in heaven) and must be so happy and proud of you for the great care and reverence you took to be sure things went smoothly. you're homily was great tonight-still very relevant. thanks for your inspiration! PEACE! ~tara t~
