Here’s my homily from this morning. Just like St. Patrick’s Cathedral is built on a rock, so must our faith be. If our lives are built on anything else other than the rock of faith in our Lord, sooner or later we will be shaken.
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.
Here’s my homily from this morning. Jesus urges us to persevere in the face of persecution and suffering. During the French Revolution, in the face of widespread anti-Church sentiment, St. Catherine Laboure was a great example of perseverance. We celebrate her Feast Day today and ask us to pray for us.
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.
Here is my homily from November 20, 2018. As St. John the Evangelist says – we must open the door for Jesus. He is waiting for us to let him in.
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.
