Advent 4 – What does the birth of Jesus mean? There are three more feasts to explain the true meaning of Christmas: He is our Sacrifice (January 1). He is the true King of the World (January 6). He is the true God (February 2nd). Keep celebrating!

Christmas is the birthday of the King of Kings. He leads us, serves us, loves us, and dies for us. His coming depended on just one Yes. Will you follow him, serve him, love him, welcome him? The whole world is waiting for your answer. [AUDIO]

God made you to know Him, love Him, and serve Him in this life so as to be happy with Him in the next. Follow Jesus and He will lead you down the path of obedience, service, and generosity. Do your onions really belong to you? (26 Nov 2017)

Fr. Joel Homilies

The King who enters triumphally into Jerusalem has come to die for His people. We cannot separate the Resurrection from the Crucifixion. Everyone wants to celebrate Easter, but how many of us are willing to celebrate Good Friday? [AUDIO]

Focus on Your Father, Not on the Crowd (#713, 8th Sunday)

Fr. Joel Homilies

Today we are reminded that God is a good father. When we get too focused on immediate needs, we lose sight of God’s presence in our lives. Keep your eyes on your Father and the other stuff will fall into place. [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]

Your King Has A Mission For You (#653, Christ the King)

Fr. Joel Homilies

We have to look beyond the appearances and have faith in our King. Jesus never lost sight of his mission. Allow God to show you His Vision and a Mission for your life. We can say No to all the junk when we say Yes to following our King. [AUDIO]
