It’s Not WHAT You Give Up for Lent, but WHY? | #915

Fr. Joel Homilies Leave a Comment

Ash Wednesday – It’s good to give up things because we want to be better, healthier, have more time, less addicted. But Lent is about uniting our sacrifices to the sacrifice of Christ on the cross. If we die with Him, we will also rise with Him.

The Trinity Is Our Identity and Our Mission | #829

Fr. Joel Homilies

Holy Trinity – The One God, Lord of the whole Universe, is also our God, a community of persons. Baptism invites us into God’s community of love. Live your life, and every moment, in the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

The Key to Abundant Life Is Shaped Like a Cross (#738, 22nd Sunday)

Fr. Joel Homilies

Who wants to suffer, sacrifice, and die? But who wants to have abundant life? You duped us, Lord! It is only when we lay down our lives as a sacrifice that we discover abundant life. The key to abundant life is shaped like a cross. [AUDIO]

Want to Have it All? Then Give Yourself Away (#731, 13th Sunday)

Fr. Joel Homilies

Yesterday 5 men laid down their lives and were ordained priests. Getting stuff and holding on to it doesn’t really make us happy. Jesus teaches us that you are a gift that was made to be given away. Our King is not outdone in generosity. [AUDIO]

Lay Down Your Life for the King (#617, Palm Sunday)

Fr. Joel Homilies

If you want to enter Jesus’ Kingdom, you must lay down your life before Him. The legend of the thorn bird reminds us that Jesus is singing his greatest song on the cross. Will you take time to stop and listen? Make this week a Holy Week. [AUDIO]
