Fr. Jim’s homily & liturgical resources for the Epiphany of the Lord

St. Joseph’s Parish wishes you good health, much light and joy as we enter into a new year. Fr. Jim has prepared a video homily for the Epiphany of the Lord and we are also sharing with you resources for this Sunday. At this time, we would like to communicate a reminder that on Saturday, January 1st, 2022 (New Year’s Day) and on Sunday, January 2, 2022 there will be a single Mass on each of those days, celebrated at 11:00 a.m.

In his homily for the Epiphany of the Lord, Fr. Jim shares:

“When I was a little boy, I remember a time in the middle of winter, when the whole town of Whitehorse was overwhelmed by darkness when the electricity generated by the dam was shut down. The sudden lost of light caused me and my siblings to panic and we cried out in fear as we tried to find each other in the dark. Our mother’s response was to light a candle and place it on the coffee table in the living room. A small act of motherly love and concern which drew us kids together around that tiny light, no longer afraid and delighting in our unusual situation.

As we celebrate the Feast of Epiphany may we recognize the revelation of Emmanuel, may God’s light and truth lead us on our journey of life; may these gifts help us live the unity and oneness God has created, in a way that overcomes the darkness of our world.”
