Read the homily of Antonio Velasco, a missionary priest during the internment mass of Jaime Bonet Bonet last June 29. See the video of the mass below.
Homily of Antonio Velasco (missionary priest, Fraternidad Misionera Verbum Dei)
Share our feelings with Jaime, “Jaime what do you feel?” “I feel the joy of all the saints. What is eternal life? What is Jaime living now? I imagined Jaime arriving very shy to Heaven, and the Trinity and Mary giving him a group hug. Like when a member of the family arrives home—not taking turns, but all together. Also I imagined him greeting brothers and sisters very dear to him. Rejoicing, tasting that source of beauty and joy that is God and the communion of all the saints. We should be sharing the joy of Jaime with the Trinity and Mary and all the Saints.
Second, thanksgiving amidst many mixed feelings. The first time I came to this chapel I was amazed. I didn’t know Jaime, but I had never laughed like that in a church like with his homily. When I came to Siete Aguas, they told me, “Antonio, do whatever you want, but don’t do spiritual exercises. They will eat your head.” After the mass a missionary approached me, “don’t you want to do exercises?” “Yes!” The words of Jaime marked me.
