Fr. Eric offers a brief homily. Our Home Field Advantage keynote speaker, Becky Eldredge, offers a reflection on being light in the world.
John the Baptist testifies that Jesus is the one who was sent by the Father. Being a “witness” of Jesus Christ is another word for follower of Jesus. What is asked of a witness?
The Baptism of Jesus brings solidarity between the divine and humanity. It raises our status.

Many Catholics understand the emphasis on dying and death. When it comes to understanding the role of healing, Catholics could do better. Today’s readings speak of the God’s vision of healing for his people.
This week we welcome Fr. Edward Beck to St. Patrick Catholic Community. Fr. Beck is a Roman Catholic priest of the Passionist Congregation. He is an author, playwright and on-air commentator for CNN on issues of faith, religion and ethics. Through his books, Fr. Beck shares experiences of his mission with God’s people across a wide spectrum of challenges: ministering to people who lost loved ones in the 9/11 attacks, walking with those struggling with addiction and counseling those navigating painful relationships.
His books include God Underneath, Soul Provider, and Unlikely Ways Home.
Here is his homily from this past weekend. Please join us Monday & Tuesday for our Advent Mission.

The season of Advent is a call to have patience with God’s plan at the end of time. Impatience can be a challenge, even for Christians.
Christians, sometimes, miss the point when it comes to understanding the “end times” that scriptures present. Fr. Eric shares a good insight in how approaching the end times in a way that makes sense.
God is always at work in our lives… even when we cannot see it.
