Come Home to Bethlehem this Christmas | #906

Christmas – We left the Garden of Eden and wandered in the cold and darkness, until the cave of Bethlehem brought us back to God’s love. Welcome the Christ child into your hearts and homes. Let light and love fill you and transform you.

Food for the Journey Through Evil Days | #841

Fr. Joel Homilies

Ordinary 20 – I read Bishop Ricken’s letter on recent scandals. Then I share my own thoughts about how this is our problem, and what we can do about it. We are grateful that Jesus feeds us with love and mercy so we can journey through evil days.

Seeing the World with Eucharistic Eyes | #839

Fr. Joel Homilies

Ordinary 19 – The gift of the Eucharist nourishes us spiritually. It also teaches us to “see” God’s love hidden in the world around us. When we see with Eucharistic eyes, we can become the Eucharistic people God made us to be.

The Eucharist: Miracle of Mercy | #823

Fr. Joel Homilies

Divine Mercy – Jesus is like us in all the ways that make us miserable. It is precisely in our misery that God comes to meet us and offer mercy and feed us with True Love. Pray to experience once again for the first time the Miracle of the Eucharist.

Glowing With God’s Glory (#735, Transfiguration)

Fr. Joel Homilies

The glory of God is hidden in the flesh and blood of Jesus, and within the bread and wine at Mass. If you listen to God, you will become who you were made to be and do what you were made to do: You too will shine with the glory of God. [AUDIO]

Before Eating Ask Yourself This Question (#720, Holy Thursday)

Fr. Joel Homilies

Though none of us is worthy we all share in the priesthood of Jesus Christ. Christ’s presence in the Eucharist and in charity is an invitation. Before you take from His table ask yourself: am I prepared to return the gift? [AUDIO]

You Are What You Eat (#630, Corpus Christi)

Fr. Joel Homilies

The Trinity gives himself to us in the Eucharist. Under the appearances of bread and wine hide the Body and Blood of Christ. The bread is changed so we can be transformed. Are you allowing yourself to become the Body of Christ? (30 May 2016)
