Have you thought sermons were boring? Think again as Fr. Joel unpacks the word of God for today’s audience. Fresh, local, and live takes on the Gospel for our world. A new homily every Sunday.
I Feel So Blessed When...
What does it take to be happy? Jesus tells us that we should feel so blessed when we experience being, "beggars in spirit.” This, and the rest of the Beatitudes, only make sense if, as it turns out, my life is not about me.
Why So Few People Choose the Road to Happiness
We all want to be happy. But we end up looking for happiness like a blind pig rooting for truffles. The disciples found the road to happiness in the most unexpected place. They have lit the way so that you can find it more easily.
Behold the Lamb of God!
This title refers to Jesus Christ as the innocent, perfect sacrifice. Where does sacrifice come from? What does it mean for us today? If you’re not living a life of sacrifice, you’re missing out on a lot of blessings.
The Father Blesses His Children
Today we “zoom out” from the Baby Jesus and we notice two things. First, we see the spiritual motherhood of Mary. Second, we see the Fatherhood of God in three different places. Let me show you how to spot it.
The Warmth and Light of Christmas
A young couple welcomes God's Love into the world. The shepherds are warmed and the wise men are enlightened. Draw near the stable and let God’s love warm your heart and enlighten your mind.
When Did God Start Preparing for Christmas?
There are three key prophecies that help us see how God prepared the gift that is Jesus. Do you shy away from welcoming Emmanuel, God-with-you? Mary and Joseph will show you how to welcome the Christ Child.
Fr Joel, also the Author of the ‘Oriens’ series, is truly a ‘sunrise’ and an ‘awakening’ to me. You see I’ve ‘known’ Fr. Joel since 2016 BUT I didn’t know him at all. Not only is his series ‘Oriens’ an ‘awakening’ but these podcasts! As I listen to these in a quiet, private, silent space he truly delivers the Holy Spirit in abundance. I am blessed to have found these ‘pods’ to embrace one, two or more in a sitting! God bless Fr. Joel and I’m so glad I got to ‘know’ you - the reflection of Christ!
Fr. Joel’s Podcast has been a game changer!
I am so grateful for Fr. Joel and his way of sharing the love of Jesus and Mary with us. His homilies always leave me with things to ponder and ways to grow my faith. Thank you Fr. Joel for making your words available to us anytime anywhere.
Fr Joel has a beautiful gift of relating the scripture readings and gospel into every day life. What a blessing it is that he shares his gift with those who can not attend mass with him.
