Homily for Sixth Sunday of Easter
As we continue celebrating our Lord's Resurrection, we also live out His gift of our resurrection life in this fallen world. On the Sixth Sunday of Easter, Rogate, we consider the praying Church and how we, God's redeemed people, exercise our faith via prayer. As I point out in this day's homily, based on the Epistle reading, 1 Timothy 2:1-6, prayer really is "Faith at Work." Thus St. Paul exhorts us to pray "for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life."
