Podcast cover

Homily from the Thirty-first Sunday in Ordinary Time.
What makes them so great? What makes me so awful?
When someone else being honored or loved more than we are meets our insecurity, we are tempted to tell stories…about them and about ourselves. But when we know who we are and are grateful for what we have, we have security. And comparison is powerless.

10/29/17 Enough: Never Enough

Podcast cover
Read more
Homily from the Thirtieth Sunday in Ordinary Time.

So many people feel like they can never do enough. In life, in relationships, in their faith. Because of this, people try to do everything and then beat themselves up over the fact that they are not able to do everything. But doing everything was never the goal. The goal, given by Jesus, is to love God with all. The question we are left with is therefore not “How can I do everything?”, but “How can I do the one thing that will grow love?”

Mass Readings from October 29, 2017:
Exodus 22:20-26

Homily from the Fourth Sunday of Easter.

In calling us to what’s next, God doesn’t necessarily take anything away, but He gives us something. He doesn’t necessarily take away the danger or the fear, but He gives us what we need for the next thing. Courage is using what you’ve been given the moment what you’ve been given is needed the most.

Homily from Ash Wednesday.
You are in a fight; what comes next?

For many of us, our default assumption about life is: it’s fine. Even when things are obviously broken, we can pretend that they will “fix themselves.” But Lent reminds us that we are in a battle that won’t be won unless we are ready to engage the enemy who will attack us like our Lord was attacked in the wilderness...behind enemy lines.

06/10/18 The Unforgivable Sin

Podcast cover
Read more
Homily from the Tenth Sunday in Ordinary Time.
At the heart of the unforgivable sin are two words.

The two words “I’m fine” might be a simple way of saying “no thanks.” But it is also a way of saying “I do not desire to change my current status.” Even if a person is thirsty or hungry, they might say “I’m fine" in response to an offer of water or food. In a similar way, someone who longs for mercy might say “I’m fine” in response to the offer of grace.

Podcast cover

Homily from the Twenty-fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time.
Ambition involves the willingness to risk. Selfless ambition is the willingness to risk the loss of status for the good of someone else.

Great leaders are not those who make their authority over others felt. Great leaders (and great people) are those who, like Christ, place themselves and their gifts at the service of others. They have no fear of losing their status, because they have no status to lose.

Homily from the Second Sunday in Advent.

Is it possible to have peace in the midst of battle? Peace is not the absence of war, but the presence of something more powerful that war and trial. Peace is found when one is ready for the current challenge because they have done what they needed to do. This principally involves being in right relationship with one’s self, with others, and most especially with God. Repentance leads to right relationship…and Confession is the great gift that God has extended to us so we can be found at peace.

09/22/19 Are You Saved? From What: Hopelessness

Podcast cover
Read more
Homily from the Twenty-fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time.
Jesus took from us what was ours so He could give to us what is His.
When we come face to face with our sin, we realize that we owe a debt we cannot pay. When we come face to face with Jesus, we realize that He paid a debt He did not owe. This is the free gift that saves us from hopelessness: we are saved by grace through faith working itself out in love.
