Living Hope and a “Happy Death”

A homily for the 25th Sunday in Ordinary Time (Year A), by Monsignor Robert Pearson: In the second reading (Philippians 1:20c-24, 27a), St. Paul speaks about longing "to depart this life and be with Christ," in other words to die. However, many of us don't share that same enthusiasm! The Christian virtue of hope (placing our desire in heaven) allows us to embrace death as much as we embrace life.

Recorded live at the 9 a.m. Mass on Sunday, September 24, 2017.
