Look What You Find Hidden In The Ordinary | #903

Fr. Joel Homilies 1 Comment

Advent 2 – God hides extraordinary grace, joy, and blessings in everyday life. It was only when St. Anthony had accepted being an ordinary monk that he started to truly live an extraordinary life for God. Embrace the ordinary, and look what happens.

Jesus Is Closer Than Ever, Which is Good Because I Really Need a Savior (#603, Advent 3)

Fr. Joel Homilies

If your Advent hasn’t gone well, that’s OK — we aren’t supposed to rejoice in ourselves. Just be generous, be honest, and be humble. That will be enough. God will do the rest. We need a savior, and He’s closer than ever. Rejoice! [AUDIO]

Don’t let anyone steal your joy (Advent 3)

Benjamin Homilies, Life on Planet Earth

The Christian life is a joyful life. We need to learn to live in joy by savoring the good moments, and by looking past the difficult moments with trust that good things are coming. So many people do exactly the opposite: they wallow in the sufferings and look past the joys because they are certain difficult times are coming. When people are unhappy, they can try to steal the joy from others, and a good example of this is How the Grinch Stole Christmas.

+308+ Joy and Peace Tell Us the Lord is Here (Advent 4)

Fr. Joel Homilies

Advent, 4th Sunday – Joy and Peace are infallible signs of the presence of God. Have you noticed moments of peace and joy this Advent? We have been watching for the coming of the Lord and we have discovered that He is already here. (23 Dec 2012)
