    11/21/21 All Over the Place

    11/21/21 All Over the Place

    Homily from the Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe When torn asunder, we are held together by worship of the King of Kings. The end of the year offers us the chance to recognize the little lords and tingy tyrants in our lives; those things we love and those things tha attack us. And we have the chance to allow Jesus Christ, the King of the Universe to be the true King over all of those fragments by offering Him true worship. Mass Readings from November 21st, 2021: Deuteronomy 7:13-14 Psalms 93:1-2, 5 Revelation 1:5-88 John 18:33-37

    11/14/21 Always Forward. Never Back.

    11/14/21 Always Forward. Never Back.

    Homily from the Thirty-third Sunday in Ordinary Time. The struggle doesn't change the destination. The struggle is the way. When we are in the middle of a journey...or the middle of life...we will encounter obstacles. In that encounter with obstacles, we will be tempted to go back. But it is necessary to ask “what is God asking of me right now?” Mass Readings from November 14th, 2021: Deuteronomy 12:1-3 Psalms 16:5, 8-11 Hebrews 10:11-14, 18 Mark 13:24-32

    11/07/21 Learning to Lose: Practice Dying

    11/07/21 Learning to Lose: Practice Dying

    Homily from the Thirty-second Sunday in Ordinary Time. Death is unavoidable. We will all lose everything. We will all lose everything...even to the point of our very lives. Rather than avoid death, we can practice dying by actively giving away our claims to our materials, time, and our abilities. Mass Readings from November 7th, 2021: 1 Kings 17:10-16 Psalms 146:7-10 Hebrews 9:24-28 Mark 12:38-44

    11/01/21 Your Feast Day

    11/01/21 Your Feast Day

    Homily from the Solemnity of All Saints. One day, this will be your feast day. The Solemnity of All Saints is the day the Church has given us to celebrate and honor what God has done in the lives of the countless people He has redeemed and sanctified. Mass Readings from November 1st, 2021: Deuteronomy 6:2-6 Psalms 18:2-4, 47, 51 Hebrews 7:23-28 Mark 12:28-34

    10/31/21 Learning to Lose: All is Lost

    10/31/21 Learning to Lose: All is Lost

    Homily from the Thirty-first Sunday in Ordinary Time. When all is lost, love God with all that's left. We are called to love God with everything. It is easier to love when we are winning, but are we able to love when we've lost? What if we have lost everything? When we've lost, we are most tempted to become bitter, resentful, and take back our love. But we are made to love God and we can trust God even in the midst of losing it all. Mass Readings from October 31st, 2021: Deuteronomy 6:2-6 Psalms 18:2-4, 47, 51 Hebrews 7:23-28 Mark 12:28-34

    10/24/21 Learning to Lose: Get Up

    10/24/21 Learning to Lose: Get Up

    Homily from the Thirtieth Sunday in Ordinary Time. Life is about losing. It is not about quitting. It is one thing to lose. It is another thing when those losses begin to stack up and we get to the point where we haven't just lost...we've been beaten. We can wind up feeling defeated. Into this place of defeat, God Himself speaks into our loss and our shame, telling us what is needed. Mass Readings from October 24th, 2021: Jeremiah 31:7-9 Psalms 126:1-6 Hebrews 5:1-6 Mark 10:46-52

So blessed

I really can not believe I’ve done this all this time. I’ve had to double up a couple of times but I’ve stuck to it. Without father Mike, I am almost sure I wouldn’t have been able to do it!
Next year, my husband is going to join me!
So excited!

Relatable Homilies- Helpful and Fun!

Even though you can’t see him, you can hear the twinkle in his eyes when he speaks because he speaks with such passion!
Fr. Mike dives deep in his homilies, making concepts easy to grasp and follow. There is not an ounce of pretentiousness in his body. Through his humility and artistic gift of storytelling, Fr. Mike allows the Holy Spirit to speak through him, proving God is always with us- if we only give Him permission to enter into our hearts.
Thanks, Fr. Mike!
Come, Lord Jesus!!

The Best Podcast - An Amazing Experience

I’m so grateful to Ascension Press for producing this podcast of the Bible in a Year. And I am every day amazed by the grace given Fr. Mike to take us through the most vital and most difficult work ever written. I don’t know if he’s aware of it, but Fr. Mike loves God so much that a brilliant light shines through the broadcasts illuminating the Bible and bringing it within reach. Not just the words, the people, places and stories - which he does make wonderful sense of - but Fr. Mike, in his enthusiasm and love of God, pulls back a veil and for the first time, I truly see God revealed throughout all of Scripture, not just the easy bits. It’s an inspiring and enriching experience that touches my life every single day. And I believe it is touching the lives of countless others igniting faith, comforting hearts and building the Kingdom of God. I’m grateful to Fr. Mike for his humility, his contagious love of our Lord Jesus, his faithfulness to his calling, and his beautiful unrestrained enthusiasm for sharing God. This podcast will stand as one of the great blessings of our time.
