Archbishop Dolan’s homily

I’ve posted an MP3 audio version of the homily given by Archbishop Timothy Dolan this past Wednesday during the Mass of Installation at Saint Patrick’s Cathedral in New York City.

It’s available on my podcast feed, or directly here.

A favorite passage from the homily:

…This is not all about Timothy Dolan, or all about cardinals and bishops, or about priests and sisters, or even about family and cherished friends.

Nope … this is all about two people: Him and her … this is all about Jesus and His Bride, the Church. For, as de Lubac asked, “What would I ever know of Him without her?”

The Resurrection, Easter, is the very foundation of our faith, our hope, our love. Everything in the Church commences when, like those two disciples on the road to Emmaus that first Easter, we recognize Jesus as risen from the dead. The Church herself begins.
