Third Sunday After Easter: The Indwelling

Why did Jesus *not* go to other nations after His Resurrection?  The answer has to do with how Christians are called to live the three stages of the interior life:  The purgative way, the illuminitive way and the unitive way.  It also has a lot do with God’s initiative in Ascension and Pentecost and then our response that leads to interior divinization and exterior evangelization.  The launching point for this sermon is actually a comparison of the above teachings  in Catholicism pace Mormonism.
