Mister, Are You Jesus? (#613, Lent 2)

Abraham believes God even though he cannot see the stars. The disciples believe in Jesus’ glory on the streets and on the cross. We listen to Jesus when we allow God’s love to shine through us. When was you were mistaken for Jesus?” [AUDIO]

The Devil Is Sneaking Between You and God – Stop Him! (#611, Ash Wednesday)

We sacrifice because Jesus sacrificed his life for us. Lent is about realizing that the Devil has been distracting me from my relationship with God. Reach through the fears and distractions and reach for God. He’s already reaching for you. [AUDIO]

Bishops Appeal: Missionaries of Mercy (#610, 5th Sunday)

Fr. Joel Homilies

Isaiah, Paul and Peter encounter God’s mercy and then bring it to others. The Year of Mercy instituted by Pope Francis is about both receiving mercy and offering mercy. How is God calling you to be a missionary of mercy? [AUDIO/VIDEO]
