Pentecost

Every Christian has been given the Spirit of God (#727, Pentecost Sunday)

Fr. Joel Homilies

The Holy Spirit is always working in the background to make the Kingdom happen in our lives. The Spirit is also working through us to bring the Kingdom to others. Each Christian has special gifts, called Charisms, for the work of the Church. [AUDIO]

The Kingdom May Be As Close As Your Next Bite of Food (#702, Advent 2)

Fr. Joel Homilies

Being a missionary disciple is about responding to Jesus in my life and helping others see His presence and action in theirs. Leading people to the Kingdom is urgent because the Kingdom is closer than we think. [AUDIO]

Why are You Idle? The Queen of Heaven Will Help You (#648, 28th Sunday)

Fr. Joel Homilies

The Queen of Heaven wishes us to help with the conversion of Sinners. Evangelization happens when we see, hear, and love as Jesus loves. Why are you idle when others are working in the vineyard? Go and fear nothing, for she will help you. [AUDIO]

Eat, Drink, and be Mary (#604, Advent 4)

Fr. Joel Homilies

Mary was humble enough to receive Jesus, obedient, and generous. When you go to a party, do you welcome guests like Elizabeth does? Do you bring Jesus along with you like Mary does? It’s time for Christmas parties: Eat, Drink, and be Mary. [AUDIO]

The Baptized Need to Be Opened (#541, 23rd Sunday)

Fr. Joel Homilies

The Lord Jesus made the deaf to hear and the mute to speak. May he soon touch your ears to receive His word and your mouth to proclaim His faith, to the praise and glory of God the Father. Spend quality time with Jesus and let Him “open” you. (6 Sep 2015)

Abandon Ship and Believe in God’s Merciful Love (#510, 3rd Sunday)

Fr. Joel Homilies

Jonah proclaims the same message as Jesus: Repent and believe in the Merciful Love of God. Time is running out for us, just like it was for the people of the Titanic. Abandon ship! God’s merciful love will catch you. (25 Jan 2015)
