Homily 206 – 3rd Sunday of Easter

April 22nd, 2012, by Fr. Shawn P. Tunink

Called to Witness

The following homily was given at the St. Lawrence Catholic Campus Center at the University of Kansas

What a contrast we see between Peter and the apostles before Pentecost and then the radical change afterward. They get such courage from the Holy Spirit. They are a great example for how each of us is called to give our testimony about Jesus. Peter boldly proclaims, “We are witnesses.” The Greek word here is martyroi…”martyrs” in English. We shouldn’t expect it to be easy to preach the good news about Jesus. Yet, if we really know what good news it is, then nothing should hold us back. We too are called to be His witnesses.

    Thank you for putting your homilies on the web for me to listen to. Your homilies are very good. I often listed to them while at work on Saturday. It would be good if you could get the Monsignor to do the same thing. Keep up the good work.
