Dominican Father Emmerich Vogt spent time with St. Mark Parish during Holy Week and offered this homily on Holy Thursday.
Memorable moment: “It is the role of the Blessed Virgin Mary to intercede with her divine Son on behalf of the wedding guests, you and me. She is the mother of the Lord, she is our mother, and she has our interests at heart, as she did at that first banquet. Jesus begins His public ministry because of the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary – always working on behalf of the wedding guest. Tonight we solemnly celebrate the wedding banquet of the Lamb led to the slaughter.”
