    Sermon 537 : He is Risen! : Easter

    Please click the play button above to listen now.
    Our first reading for this Easter day is Peter's great kerygmatic speech on Pentecost morning. Filled with the Holy Spirit, Peter addresses the Jerusalem crowd, telling them the impossibly good news that Jesus of Nazareth, a man who moved through their ordinary towns and villages, has been raised from the dead. The Easter faith of the Church is not an abstraction, not a vague claim about God's fidelity or our hope for immortality. Rather, it is the startling assertion that God has brought this man Jesus back from the dead. May we bask in the glow of this still surprising revelation.

Abstineas dicens: "Vah, qui déstruis templum Dei, et in tribus diébus reaedificas: salvum fac temetipsum, decséndens de cruce."

We all should make sure we do not blaspheme by saying: "Vah, you who destroys the temple of God and in three days rebuilds it: save your own self. If you be the Son of God, come down from the cross."

I always enjoy your messages.
One small clarification: this was the message of Pentecost. However, it message that Peter was delivering to Cornelius, the first preaching of the gospel to the Gentiles

How wise it is for the Church to use St. Peter's first speech to the gentiles on this Easter morning. Like the first disciples we, too, are shaken by what we've gone through these past few days of the triduum. Your homily forces us to reflect on the message of the Paschal mystery - a message we either lukewarmly accept or vehemently ignore at a time when we're still grappling with the horrible events that took place. Thank you and may God bless you always.

(Oh, good grief...) For those of you who, like me, saw "kerygmatic" and held your head like herring do*, it rhymes with "enigmatic" and means having to do with "the apostolic proclamation of salvation through Christ." We really need a Catholic version of Jeopardy...

*Extra points for anyone who knows the origin of that line. Hint: Syliva Fine Kaye wrote it.

I personally think that the Lord allowed you to make this mistake about the correct passage, because this version of Peter's speech is clearer and more dynamic than his speech to the Gentiles and Cornelius.
You made a super job of it.
Thanks. and GBY KGFG!.
