On today’s Conversation with Cardinal Dolan, Father Dave Dywer and I discuss my memories of George H. W. Bush as well as Advent. Our special guests include Grammy-winner John Michael Talbot and Decided Excellence Catholic Media’s Tim Ferriter.
Here’s my homily from this morning. During Advent, we often hear the phrase “On that day.” Did you know in the Old Testament it actually refers to the first coming of Jesus, Christmas, and in the New Testament it refers to the second coming of Jesus at the end of time?
Here’s my homily from this morning. During Advent we celebrate the assurance that Jesus will come and be with His people. Today we also celebrate the Feast of St. Francis Xavier, who accepted the invitation of Jesus to come to him, but also the mandate to go teach all the nations
Advent celebrates the three comings of Christ – the Lord DID come, the Lord IS coming now, and the Lord WILL come at the end of time. We should always be prepared for the coming of Jesus and also savor each moment of life.
On today’s Conversation with Cardinal Dolan, I discuss Advent, gnosticism vs. the sacredness of our human bodies, Catholic art, and #GivingTuesday.
Here is my homily from November 27, 2018. I’m sorry for the frightening readings at the end of the Church year, but they are meant to makes us think about the end of time – both our own personal end and the end of the world when Jesus will come again.
On today’s Conversation with Cardinal Dolan, Father Dave Dwyer and I talk about the coming season of Advent, voting and election day, social media, pro-life movements, and much more. Thanks for listening!

As is my annual tradition, I celebrated Mass yesterday for the inmates at Taconic Correctional Facility in anticipation of Christmas. After the Mass was concluded, I blessed a plaque in honor of Sister Antonia Maguire, a Franciscan Sister, who ministered to the inmates at the facility for about five decades. Sister Antonia recently died, and what follows is a moving tribute to her by Sister Laura, her Provincial.
