+410+ The Light that Warms the Soul (3rd Sunday)

Fr. Joel Homilies

Ordinary Time, 3rd Sunday. The darkness of winter can make us SAD. But the darkness of human existence can leave us wandering in endless circles, going nowhere. Christ is the Light, and a living encounter with His Love is the source of our faith. Our life is meant to be a path towards God and Faith illuminates that path.

We need to invite the Light of Christ to penetrate the darkness of our hearts. How do we become holy? Great saints have encouraged us to turn to Mary for help. Please consider joining us for the Total Consecration to Jesus through Mary this Lent. Mary will help every Christian start glowing with the Light of Christ.

One thing that keeps me going during the winter is the fact that every day is one day closer to summer. Yes, we have a long way to go, but we will get there. In the same way, every day is one step closer to eternity. We still have many trials to endure, but if we follow the Light of Faith, it will guide us to the promised land and the One who loves us.
