Online Liturgy – Anzac Weekend
This week the Homily draws a parallel between the remembering of ANZAC Day and this Easter season where the disciples on the road to Emmaus seemed so wrapped up in their own questions and confusion that they did not "see" the One whose loss they grieved. Rather than impose himself on his friends, Jesus respects their experience and lets them open their eyes and see Jesus for themselves.
