From the homily
Fr. Michael was the celebrant at noon Mass today. Since the Gospel today dealt with an appearance of the Risen Christ to the Apostles,in his homily he went over the four properties of the risen Body of Christ- that it is now impassible (not able to suffer), agile (able to move with extreme rapidity and grace), subtle (able to pass all barriers- i.e. to go through walls) and clear (shining with the radiance of His perfect human Soul). He commented that while the skeptical, cynical world would dismiss this as a 'fairytale', it tries to give its own pale and false images of glory in the celebrities and such that it hold up for imitation. However, true glory comes through obedience. The Risen Christ bears the marks of the nails.
