Sermo Dei: The Feast of the Resurrection, A.D. 2015

The surprise of Easter is that Jesus doesn’t have to make a big show of it. He just tells us how things are. But what those things are, that is amazing. The death and resurrection of Jesus, now your very own: given in plain words spoken to each other; given in plain words spoken while water is poured; given in plains words spoken over bread and wine that are then consumed by Christ’s Church.

Sermo Dei: Holy Thursday, A.D. 2015

Jesus certainly unites us one to another. But as I said at the beginning, He also unites us to Himself. Or perhaps it’s even better said that He unites Himself to us. For Jesus comes in His glorified and risen Body and Blood and feeds you Himself, by my unworthy hand. Jesus comes and gives you the complete forgiveness of your sin. Take, eat. Take, drink. The true Body and Blood of Jesus is here for forgiveness, for you.

Sermo Dei: Holy Wednesday, A.D. 2015

So when Jesus is crucified He says, “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.” This is a prayer for forgiveness for not only the Roman soldiers or the Jews or those present in Jerusalem that Passover. This is a prayer of forgiveness for all of us, for the whole world. Your Sin put Jesus there. Nevertheless, because of His love for you, He went willingly, and even in the torment of it all pleads for your forgiveness.
