Here’s my homily from this morning. In the Gospel today, Jesus speaks about the necessity of perseverance in prayer. The month of October is dedicated to a prayer that by its very nature is persevering – the Rosary.
Here’s my homily from this morning. God and His Son have often revealed to us how close they are to the poor, humble, and meek – to those that are hidden. It’s no wonder why Saint Thérèse of Lisieux, whose feast we celebrate today, is so loved.

Today is the Feast of Saints Andrew Kim-Tae-gon, Paul Chong Ha-sung & Companions, martyrs. When Jesus’ listeners heard Him say, “If you want to be my disciples you must carry your cross like I do,” I wonder if they figured that one day those words would apply to Asia. They probably did, because they were the same listeners who heard him say,“Go out to the whole world and tell everybody what I have told you.”
Here’s my homily from this morning. Today we hear Saint Paul refer to the Church as the household of God – isn’t that a magnificent metaphor?
Here’s my homily from this morning. A common theme we hear from one another these days is disappointment and frustration in our political leaders. Our first reading from Saint Paul this morning offers some advice – pray for those who govern you.
