Audio Sermon MP3
3rd Sunday After Easter 2021
Today is also the feast of St. Mark the Evangelist and the day for the Greater Litanies, which are more ancient than St. Mark’s day. St. Peter in the Epistle is asking the faithful to practice the Faith and thereby be models for non-Catholics and poor Catholics. He reminds us of practicing the virtue of obedience before God and our neighbors. Our good example and brief words, not preaching, convert others. The story of a priest simply asking a girl “not to hurt God” is a wonderful case in point.
