Sunday Sermon, April 18th -- Meditating on the Resurrection (Father Ryan Erlenbush, Corpus Christi Parish)

During Lent we were focused on penance, mortification, and self denial. Throughout the Easter Season, we should strive to grow in mental prayer.  What is mental prayer? Rather than simply reciting memorized vocal prayers (as good and important as that is), in mental prayer we picture the scenes of our Lord's life or consider some other mystery of our faith. Mental prayer focuses on the love God has revealed in these mysteries, and our response of love in return.

We discuss the historical details of the five Resurrection appearances of Jesus on Easter Sunday, as found in the Gospels - and offer points for meditation.
