Third Sunday of Easter Homily

Jesus continues to travel with believers even in the dark times of the coronavirus, Archbishop José H. Gomez said April 26.

“God is purifying us through this pandemic,” he said. “He is testing our faith and making us stronger.”

In his homily for the third Sunday of Easter, delivered in Spanish and livestreamed over the internet from the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels, Archbishop Gomez compared the confusion and despair of disciples traveling to Emmaus with the sadness and loneliness felt by many living under quarantine and stay-at-home orders.
