Started watching Fr Mike when masses were canceled. Every homily it was like he was talking to our family and we always get SO much out of it! It has gotten us through some very hard times and reminded us to be grateful through the good times. The message is always relevant with current events in the world and in my life and tie back into the Bible. I am TRILLED we can still listen to Fr Mike! Thank you, thank you, thank you! Please keep doing what you are doing and God Bless!!!

Learning lots!

Rank #1: 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?”

Exodus 22:20-26
Psalm 18:2-3, 3-4, 47, 51

Rank #4: 10/27/19 CompariSIN: The Way of Comparison

Podcast cover
Read more
Homily from the Thirtieth Sunday in Ordinary Time.
What makes them so great? What makes me so awful?

Rank #5: 03/07/19 Behind Enemy Lines: Isolated and Disoriented

Podcast cover
Read more
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.

Rank #6: 04/22/18 What's Next: When the Chips Are Down

Podcast cover
Read more
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.

Rank #8: 09/23/18 Greatest of All Time: Selfless Ambition

Podcast cover
Read more
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.

Podcast cover

Homily from Ash Wednesday.
Are you trying to prove you are lovable? Does your weakness prove that you aren’t?
Lent is tough. Fasting is tough. Christianity is tough. Jesus reveals that His Heart is soft when it comes to our weakness. If we are willing to come out of hiding and fully give our entire selves to Him, He can make our hearts whole in the midst of our littleness.

Rank #11: 11/03/19 CompariSIN: Infinitely Preferred

Podcast cover
Read more
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.

Rank #12: 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.

Genesis 3:9-15

Homily from the Fourth Sunday of Easter.
Failure either gives us clarity and conviction or course correction.

Failure is not final and failure is not fatal. As long as we don’t stop, and as long as we are willing to learn from our failures, they have no power to defeat us but only to educate us and make us better.

Homily from the Thirty-third Sunday in Ordinary Time.
If comparison is a thief of joy, then we have to learn how to steal it back.
In the battle to escape the comparison trap, we can become invincible to bad comparison by actively looking for the blessings, giving thanks, and inviting others into celebrating them. Because there are some things worth celebrating.

Rank #18: 12/10/17 Be At Peace

Podcast cover
Read more
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.

Mass Readings from December 10, 2017:
Isaiah 40:1-5, 9-11
