Click here to download and listen to this homily (13 minutes) given by Fr Thomas Weise at St Catherine of Siena parish in Petersburg, AK. St Peter says, "We must always be ready to give a reason for our hope." We have so many aspects of our faith that fill us with hope: the Holy Spirit, promise of Eternal Life, the gift of the Eucharist, God's mercy and forgiveness, Jesus' abiding presence with us. Let us take Jesus with us out into the world, for we are Christians!
Readings: Acts 8:5-8, 14-17; Psalm 66; 1 Peter 3:15-18; John 14:15-21.
