The Lord and Giver of Life (#631, 10th Sunday)

Fr. Joel Homilies

Tenth Sunday in Ordinary Time (Year C) feat. Deacon Michael: God wants to give us life. He creates the world, creates human life, and raises people from the dead. Yet so many times we believe that God is out to get us, to smite us, and destroy us. Not true. The Church is like a mother pelican that feeds us from the pierced side of Christ. God sacrifices himself to give us life.

(5 June 2016)

Point to Ponder: What does it mean to be fed from the pierced side of Christ?

Point to Discuss: Is there a time in your life when you felt that God was destroying your life? Talk to a wise spiritual person about that experience.
