    8/7/22 Loosen the Roots

    8/7/22 Loosen the Roots

    Homily from the Nineteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time.
    We sacrifice because we love and we love because we sacrifice.
    The roots in our lives can be so beneficial. Family and friends, home and homeland. But roots can also become traps. Good things can become Ultimate Things. When we say "I need this" and are willing to sacrifice anything to get or to hold on to it, we become trapped. In this, God loosens the roots and calls us to walk by faith.

    07/31/22 Then What?

    07/31/22 Then What?

    Homily from the Eighteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time.
    Time and Death make most of what we live for hevel.
    We are preoccupied with "done", but we are simultaneously addicted to asking "then what?". The wisdom of Ecclesiastes notes that so much of what we live for is impermanent, passing, or meaningless. Yet Jesus reveals that there is a real meaning and a real hope.
    Mass Readings from July 31, 2022: Ecclesiastes 1:2; 2:21-23 Psalms 90:3-6, 12-14 and 17Colossians 3:1-5, 9-11 Luke 12:13-21

    7/24/22 Teach Us How

    7/24/22 Teach Us How

    Homily from the Seventeenth Sunday in Ordinary Time.
    The Who determines the How.
    The disciples did not merely want Jesus to help them have a "better spiritual life" or a deeper prayer life; they wanted to pray how He prayed. And Jesus taught them. He taught them that Who we pray to determines how we pray.

    7/17/22 The Question

    7/17/22 The Question

    Homily from the Sixteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time.
    Feeling anxious, worried, or sorry for yourself is normal. It is also completely unhelpful.
    We have a problem. And the problem is that we can do the right thing in the wrong way. We can choose to serve...while feeding our worry and self-pity. We can carry our cross...while feeling anxious and sorry for ourselves. Everything comes down to one question; it is not a matter of being tough, it is a matter of trust.
    Mass Readings from July 17, 2022: Genesis 18:1-10 Psalms 15:2-5Colossians 1:24-28 Luke 10:38-42

    07/10/22 Simple Things First

    07/10/22 Simple Things First

    Homily from the Fifteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time.
    I can know all I need to know and still not do all I need to do.
    There are so many things that we know that we ought to do. There are even things that we know that we want to do. And yet...we just can't seem to act on what we know. How do we start? How do we become people who do what we know we ought to do?
    Mass Readings from July 10, 2022: Deuteronomy 30:10-14 Psalms 69:14, 17, 30-31, 33-34, 36-37Colossians 1:15-20 Luke 10:25-37

    07/03/22 Be A Saint

    07/03/22 Be A Saint

    Homily from the Fourteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time
    What else is there?
    Many of us want to grow spiritually. But what does that really mean? What is it that we really want? What is the actual goal of life? Put in the words of Jesus, what should we truly rejoice in? Christ's answer is nothing less than having our names written in Heaven.
    Mass Readings from July 3, 2022: Isaiah 66:10-14 Psalms 66:1-7, 16, 20Galatians 6:14-18 Luke 10:1-12, 17-20
