Washington D.C. Archbishop Donald Wuerl implores us to see how the crosses in our lives open us up to a heavenly reality.
Palm Sunday of the Lords Passion, Year B
Washington D.C. Archbishop Donald Wuerl takes the gospel for this final Sunday of Lent and helps us make the connection between our suffering and the Lord’s. In his 10-minute homily he explains how suffering has redemptive value in life and must always be put into a Christian perspective: In suffering we can find a real gift. In the question-and-answer segment Archbishop Wuerl talks about the distractions in our culture that keep us from focusing on the real meaning of life. This week’s musical selection is “How Beautiful” by OCP Artist Twyla Paris. You can listen separately to that song, to the musical setting of the Lord’s Prayer or to Archbishop Wuerl’s blessing by following the links below. But it’s really best if you listen to the whole show.
