The Inaugural "Word of God Sunday"

Last fall, on the feast of St. Jerome, Pope Francis declared that the 3rd Sunday of the Year shall be designated as "Word of God Sunday". This is more like World Mission Sunday or The World Day of Prayer for the Sick, rather than an additional liturgical feast like Divine Mercy Sunday or Christ the King were. But anyway, as a word nerd and a Word nerd it's pretty exciting. So here's the homily, which was mostly quotes from the Pope's document Aperuit Illis, i.e. "He open for them", quoting Luke about the risen Jesus opening the Scriptures to the two on the way to Emmaus.
