TEXT FROM THE GOSPEL AND HOMILY

The Lord be with you. And with your spirit.

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke. Glory to you o Lord.

Some Sadducees, those who deny that there is a resurrection, came forward. Jesus said to them, "The children of this age marry and remarry; but those who are deemed worthy to attain to the coming age and to the resurrection of the dead neither marry, nor are given in marriage. They can no longer die for they are like angels; and they are the children of God because they are the ones who will rise. That the dead will rise, even Moses made known in the passage about the bush, when he called out 'Lord,' the God of Abraham, the God Isaac, and the God of Jacob; and he is not God of the dead, but of the living, for to him all are alive."

The Gospel of the Lord. Praise to you Lord Jesus Christ.

The resurrection of the dead, it’s a pretty important topic for us as I'm sure you all understand in the gospel reading, Jesus was challenging his opponents to consider the idea that the wonders of resurrection are even greater than any of their expectations and that's actually pretty easy because the expectations of those Sadducees weren't very high to begin with so I'd like to just offer one little modern twist to this issue. As a priest, there's a word that I don't much care for. I try to avoid it whenever I can. And the word is "afterlife." Don't get me wrong. It's not a bad word or anything like that. The problem isn't the word but it's how people hear it sometimes. When people hear the word "afterlife" they picture something like this life that just is never ending. And that's actually not very helpful. The word "eternity" is actually much more useful in expressing our faith, because eternity is beyond our experience. And that's good because it helps the wonder and awe move within us. When people talk about the afterlife sometimes they talk about it as though you still have a house, as if you still belong to the same social class, you still have your clique of friends and of course you still give yourself to another in marriage. And as Jesus clearly states, that’s just not the case. All that stuff is one day going to give way to something grander and better than anything this world can offer. And it will happen without undoing the good that currently exits on earth mind you, there is goodness in your clique of friends. Surely there is goodness in the sacrament of matrimony, but the goodness in the kingdom of God, that goes far beyond anything we can experience in this life. And it's that wonder and awe of eternity with God that Christ was inviting those Sadducees to understand in the gospel. So on that note, I think I'm going to let the words of St. Paul take us home today. Eye has not seen, ear has not heard, nor so much has it dawned on man what God has ready for those who love him.
