Click here to download and listen to this homily (10 minutes) given by Fr Thomas Weise at St Catherine of Siena parish in Petersburg, Alaska. God is the God of the living, not the dead. In the resurrection of the dead the connections we have made in love to God and each other will remain. Those who are alive in God always "are." That is the beauty of the resurrection of the dead. For we are all alive in God.
Resurrection: 1 Maccabees 6:1-13; Psalm 9; Luke 20:27-40
