Hi! This is Fr. Patrick Gonyeau, a priest in the Archdiocese of Detroit, and I'd love to share with you the Word of God. I was once an agnostic and dared God to show me He was real...and the rest is history. There is no greater gift that we can receive than Jesus Christ who brings us the joy of salvation! It is my hope and prayer that these homilies bring to you and those you share them with the joy of knowing and loving Jesus...who is calling all of us!

It's Not Our Own
In Chapter 20 of Luke's Gospel, Jesus teaches the Sadducees about the resurrection of the dead. In His teaching is the grace to be renewed in the truth that we don't live for this life alone, because our life is not our own.
Someone Was Praying For Him
When Zacchaeus encounter Jesus, he was a changed man...someone was praying for him. Bernard Nathanson went from overseeing roughly 75,000 abortions to becoming a baptized Catholic and a champion for life...someone was praying for him. The need for the the power of prayer in this hour in Michigan can't be understated...
Do Not Be Afraid
In Luke 18:9-14, Jesus teaches about how a transformative religious experience takes place in the humble heart of a believer in tune with bare bones reality confessing being entirely needy of God in the midst of it all. This is where courage in the face of all challenges comes from, the promise of His presence that faith opens us up to.
God's Sacred Design for Women
The morning message at the Michigan Catholic Women's Conference...
A Cry for Mercy
The 10 lepers cried out for mercy...and the healing love of Jesus was released. (Lk 17) His healing love, in some form, awaits all who turn to Him. (2 Cor 3:16) In these days in Michigan, the Catholic Church is crying out for mercy...
The Sacred Dignity of Life
On Respect Life Sunday in the U.S. Catholic Church, a reflection on the dignity of the human person and how precious life is...
Praise Jesus for Fr. Patrick!
Fr. Patrick is filled with the Holy Spirit! If every priest was this docile to the Holy Spirit, the whole world would be on fire for love of Jesus! Being around Fr. Patrick and hearing him speak reveals the goodness of God as a loving and gentle Father! Jesus give us more priests like this!! Amen!
So thankful for Father Gonyeau’s teachings. They are such a light in dark times.
A true blessing!
I had the blessed experience of meeting Father Gonyeau about 1 year ago through the recommendation of another parishioner! The enthusiasm and love he shows for Jesus is contagious. Within 1 minute of listening to him, I was captured and saw that he was filled with the Holy Spirit. Father Patrick was able to touch me personally with his testimony and gave me the incredible hope I needed at that time in my life! May God continue to bless Father Patrick abundantly and keep him protected and covered in the precious blood of our Living Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Thank you Father Patrick for sharing your love and compassion to everyone! May God continue to bless you!
