The cost of discipleship in Luke’s Gospel is an invitation to understanding true freedom, not slavery.
Jesus accepts the invitation for a meal from those who are difficult. They watch Jesus closely to see if he makes a mistake. It is interesting that Jesus would say, “yes” to eat with difficult people… What does he teach us from doing this?
Some who are last will be first, and some who are first will be last… Jesus’ words can sting if we think we are first in line because we think we are doing all things correctly to gain entrance. Fr. Eric gives insights for a deeper understanding of these words.
Fr. Eric shares his homily and invites Kevin McGloin, our Director of Formation, to join him as they talk about formation as a life long process.
The real presence of Jesus in the Eucharist comes to us in our brokenness. Why do we deny ourselves of healing, believing we are not worthy to receive?
Listen to Fr. Eric’s Homily from this past weekend:
Liturgy is meant to bring in all areas of our lives, not run away from it… Our country mourns more gun violence deaths. Fr. Eric threw away his prepared homily to talk about the recent shootings. Please listen with an open heart.
Learning how to pray takes patience… It can be compared to fishing. In this week’s homily, Fr. Eric shares some insights on how fishing and praying go together.
Luke’s story of the sisters Martha and Mary can be seen as, “Mary was right and Martha was not”… But… There is much more going on in this Gospel! Fr. Eric takes us behind the scenes to learn what Jesus does in this story.
All three scripture readings give insights into how God wants responsible observance of the law. An interior framework based on love, not mere outward observance of rules.
