What Do I Have to Do to Avoid Going to Hell? | #847

Fr. Joel Homilies

Ordinary 28 – You can’t do something to inherit eternal life because Jesus himself is Eternal Life. He loves you, and he desires you to be his friend. The journey may cost you everything, but it’s worth 100 times more. ”I love you. Come, follow me.”

Community of Discipleship: God in the Flesh (#705, Advent 4)

King Ahaz can’t save himself, and neither can we. God’s Son comes to save us. He is welcomed into the community of Mary and Joseph. Through the Holy Spirit, the community of believers becomes God-with-us to one another. [AUDIO]

Giving and Serving Makes Us Like God (#547, 29th Sunday)

Fr. Joel Homilies

Jesus Is Worth More Than Many Possessions (#546, 28th Sunday)

Fr. Joel Homilies

To inherit Eternal Life you must follow Jesus and let go of the security you have built for yourself. What have you built to give yourself security? Don’t be afraid to follow Jesus away from them. Only Jesus can give you Eternal Life. (11 Oct 2015)

The Nobody is the Greatest (#543, 25th Sunday)

Fr. Joel Homilies

We are like little children: God’s love embraces us, for we are each the greatest in God’s eyes. Don’t be afraid to be a “nobody” and to welcome the “nobodies” of this world. When we build up others, we are building the Kingdom of God. (20 Sep 2015)
