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 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’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.
“God’s love for us is passionate, personal, eternal, and a pure gift — we cannot earn it! All we can do is accept it, and love Him back.”

“The Ten Commandments allow us to be the people that our Creator intended us to be.”
Cardinal Dolan’s Homily on the Third Sunday of Lent, March 8, 2015.
Jesus came to restore the culture of life… The more vulnerable the life is the more Jesus reaches out to protect it. On January 22, people will gather to stand up for the culture of life as a reminder that all life is sacred.
