Jesus Can Fix All Things

The Right Way To Use All Things, Including Erasers Shaped Like Wrenches | #913

Fr. Joel Homilies 2 Comments

Ordinary 6 – We wouldn’t be so worried about pleasure, power, possessions or popularity if we believed in the Resurrection. We must use created things as much as they help us to fulfill our purpose, and rid ourselves of them so far as they hinder us.

You Won’t Always Be a Caterpillar (#723, Easter 2)

Fr. Joel Homilies

The early Church gathers around the Risen Lord and leads others to faith. Faith gives us a glimpse of our final destiny. We are like caterpillars preparing for a transformation into butterflies. Don’t worry: even your wounds are glorious. [AUDIO]

The Dead Will Rise (#718, Lent 5)

Fr. Joel Homilies

It’s never too late for Jesus. The whole world will know that Jesus is Lord when he returns on the last day to raise the dead. That’s what Christian funerals are all about. But you can experience the Resurrection now by inviting Jesus in. (2 Apr 2017)

The Mysterious Mary Magdalene

Fr. Joel Being Catholic

After the Blessed Virgin Mary herself, there is perhaps no woman in the New Testament more intriguing than Mary Magdalene. She has figured prominently in art, the naming of churches, and even popular fiction. Pope Francis just elevated her feast day, July 22, to greater importance.
