"I still have much to learn!" These words of the 94 year old Cardinal Mayer help us all to acknowledge that our knowledge of most things in life is superficial. This is the great blessing of the alpha course: it allows us the opportunity to deepen our knowledge of our faith. 

"Why did Jesus die?" is a question that we all know how to answer: to save us from our sins. The follow up question is more challenging: how did Jesus' death save us from our sins. In the homily, we looked at the consequences of our sins and how Jesus' death saves us from sin.
