YEAR C: HOMILY FOR THE 5TH SUNDAY OF EASTER
HOMILY THEME: SELFLESS LOVE
BY: Fr Emmanuel Nwokeji.
HOMILY: Welcome to the 5th Sunday of Easter. The readings of today remind us that Love of God through our neighbours brings in new people for God, opens new places, creates new world where shechina or God’s presence will abide with us always.
The exit of Judas opens the final event of Jesus. Jesus looked beyond the cross and anticipated the glory that would come upon him. Therefore, Jesus is not offering us easy way of life. But how to achieve greatness through many tribulations.
As we Show love to others the way Jesus had showed us; sacrificial, forgiven and selfless love, may his abiding presence never depart from us.
Fr Emmanuel Nwokeji.
