Father Robert Elias, OCD: Easter Pentecost

In this Easter Monday homily, Father Robert Elias explains that the resurrection is the incarnation of the lavish love of the Lord. In his risen form, Jesus Christ calls believers to recognize the mighty signs of Pentecost.

Matthew 28: 8-15

Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went away quickly from the tomb,
fearful yet overjoyed,
and ran to announce the news to his disciples.
And behold, Jesus met them on their way and greeted them.
They approached, embraced his feet, and did him homage.
Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid.
Go tell my brothers to go to Galilee,
and there they will see me.”

While they were going, some of the guard went into the city
and told the chief priests all that had happened.
The chief priests assembled with the elders and took counsel;
then they gave a large sum of money to the soldiers,
telling them, “You are to say,
‘His disciples came by night and stole him while we were asleep.’
And if this gets to the ears of the governor,
we will satisfy him and keep you out of trouble.”
The soldiers took the money and did as they were instructed.
And this story has circulated among the Jews to the present day.

    Thank you for your website. It is wonderful. Could you please give me your source/reference for St. Teresa’s words from Our Lord.
    “I would create the world again just to hear you say I love you”

    1. Hi James Michael,

      I don’t know where that quote specifically comes from but I would guess from The Life of St Teresa.
