Here’s my homily from November 9, 2018. This “brick and mortar” feast day, the dedication of the Basilica of St. John Lateran in Rome, does commemorate a church, but in a bigger way, it celebrates the Church — the mystical body of Christ.
Here is my homily from November 8, 2018. Sometimes in life, we must stop to think about not only what appears good, but what is in line with our faith. As St. Paul said, “Whatever gains I had, these I have come to consider a loss because of Christ.”
Here’s my homily from November 6, 2018. Sometimes having an attitude isn’t a bad thing. As St. Paul said, we have an attitude – but it must be that of Christ.
Here’s my homily from November 5, 2018. During November, Holy Mother Church invites us to consider the end times. We pray for those who have passed as we await the gift of salvation – the Great Banquet: eternal union with God and the joy and peace of Heaven.
Here’s my homily from November 4, 2018. Jesus explains the greatest commandment: Love of God, love of neighbor, and love of self — which is not a narcissistic love, but a recognition that if God loves me, we should live in a way that that honors that love.
That leads to the fourth kind of love Jesus often teaches about which is even more fundamental : God’s personal, passionate, perpetual love for us! We can’t earn it or win it. It’s not that we love God, but that he first loved us!
Here is my homily from October 30, 2018. We learn that the teachings of Jesus and His Church are always going to go against the times.
Here’s my homily from October 28, 2018. The story of Bartimaeus teaches us that God wants us to tell him what we need in our prayer. Why? Because God knows that we need to create a space in our heart and soul, so that we’re ready to receive the answer.
Here’s my homily from October 23, 2018. The waters of baptism are thicker than blood. They bring people together that blood might separate. But the most precious blood of Jesus Christ is thicker than anything.
Here is my homily for the Feast of Saint Pope John Paul II, October 22, 2018 “The Lord made us, we belong to Him.” – Saint Pope John Paul II on World Youth Day 1993. We reflect on life’s priorities and our place with the Lord and ask for Saint Pope John Paul II to pray for us.
Here is my homily for the Twenty-ninth Sunday in Ordinary Time, October 21, 2018, World Mission Sunday. Today we remember that in times of darkness and adversity, God is there as much as He is in times of joy and light and happiness.
