Fifth Sunday in Easter, May 22, 2011
Fr. Joseph Eddy, O. de M.
Gospel: John 14:1-12 “No one comes to the Father, but by me.”
Full homily text: I remember as children in art class that each year we would make pottery. Each of us would be given clay-like substance that was almost like “play dough.” The teacher would take the clay mold into these beautiful images: a vase, or a mug. I would think to myself, “Wow this is going to be great!” I would then take the clay and work with it, but it never seemed to go as I planned. It didn’t look as nice as the teachers or even many of my classmates.
