    HOMILY: We Hunger for Obedience

    HOMILY: We Hunger for Obedience

    The theme of bread is used in various ways. Jesus teaches us that "Man does not live by bread alone" but hungers for the "Word that comes from the Father's mouth." Jesus is that Word. Jesus also teaches us, after addressing the Samaritan woman's thirst, that He has Bread that others do not know about. But this bread is "doing the will of the Father." When Jesus feeds us Himself, He is feeding us the Spirit of Obedience to His Father that lives in Him. We can tap into this through faith, in a way that makes such obedience appetizing. Without faith, it is merely servile fear or aimless practices that lead our life. But to make ourselves into a self-offering to God we sacrifice our will, by surrendering to His with full trust, flinging ourselves into the loving arms of God's will.

Powerful

Honest and sincere homily of Jesus Christ’s work of love overcoming death. Thank you for all your work, and God bless.

A beautiful sound

What a good and honest priest teaching humbly the truths of the Catholic Church. He is clear and concise and relevant. I have brushed off a lot of Catholic podcasts for being too irreverent or rigid but Father Chris presents the teachings in a way that is not pretentious or uncharitable. Bonus points that he is young and “gets” the current culture. Highly recommend for digestible, holy topics to consider throughout your week.
