Homily, Pentecost Sunday, June 4, 2017

Pentecost- the Spirit is present in our sacred place each time we gather. The disciples begin today’s gospel locked behind closed doors. Our misunderstanding of seeing our sacred space as simply a building is having our hearts and minds locked behind closed doors. Christians do not gather in a building, there is something more going on. What is it? Listen to the homily for Pentecost.

The Epiphany of the Lord, Sunday Scripture Readings and Reflections

The Epiphany is indeed a great Feast, and the joy caused us by the Birth of our Jesus must be renewed on it, for as though it were a second Christmas Day, it shows us our Incarnate God in a new light. It leaves us all the sweetness of the dear Babe of Bethlehem, who hath appeared to us already in love; but to this it adds its own grand manifestation of the divinity of our Jesus. At Christmas it was a few Shepherds that were invited by the Angels to go and recognize THE WORD MADE FLESH; but now, at the Epiphany, the voice of God himself calls the whole world to adore this Jesus, and hear him.

4th Sunday of Advent,Sunday Scripture Readings and Reflections

“Joseph and Mary were engaged to be married when Joseph found out that Mary was going to have a baby. After hearing this news, Joseph decided to call off the marriage. But an angel appeared to him in a dream and told him to stay with Mary and take care of her. The angel said the baby was God’s son and should be named Jesus. This was not at all what Joseph had planned! The angel’s message was so unusual, and would require so much from him, that it would have been easier for Joseph to pretend he didn’t hear it. Instead, he trusted God and did what the angel asked, even though it would change his life.” CRS 2016

Homily-December 11, 2016

” John the Baptist from prison sends his follower to Jesus asking if he is the one they have been waiting on or is there another? Jesus answer is so perfect, basically saying looking around and tell me what you see? Blind now see, Lame now walk, deaf now hear… In other words figure it out yourself. Jesus always leaves a fragment in his answers to cause us to believe or trust what he is saying. Notice he does not give us clarity, easy answers. There must be free will on our part to either love God or reject him. It is always our decision.”
