Homily from Pilgrimage to Jordan & Israel (May 8, 2018): HOME OF LAZARUS

This May I’ve been enormously blessed to be on an “Off the Beaten Path” pilgrimage to Jordan and Israel with Lino Rulli from SiriusXM’s The Catholic Channel (ch. 129) and a fun group of pilgrims.

Here is the homily given at the site of the home of Lazarus, Mary, and Martha in Bethany. The gospel was from John 11.1-43, which is the raising of Lazarus.

You’ll likely notice something sort of strange with this homily… the nearby mosque had *just* begun the call to prayer as I was wrapping up the gospel, and this continued through most of the homily. Hopefully you enjoy the musical accompaniment. :)
