Fr. Joel Homilies

The woman is accused of adultery, but the elders are guilty of adultery against God himself. So are we, for we have been unfaithful. Jesus loves the woman and dies for her. Will you admit you are a sinner and let Jesus die for you? [AUDIO]

Hollywood and ISIS Are Missing The Same Thing (#615, Lent 4)

Fr. Joel Homilies

ISIS doesn’t believe in a merciful God. Both the older son and the younger son are missing the same thing: their father’s love. Sometimes we are the older son, sometimes the younger. But we are all called to be merciful like the Father. [AUDIO]

Marriage is for Children (#545, 27th Sunday)

Fr. Joel Homilies, The Loving Life

Human beings were designed by God to mate for life. Marriage creates a safe place for children, which is why children hate divorce. Jesus calls us back to our childhood innocence. Come to him, let him heal you, and do not forbid others. (4 Oct 2015)

Jesus Is Worth More Than An Eyeball (#544, 26th Sunday)

Fr. Joel Homilies

The name of Jesus is powerful to bless and heal. Whatever brings us closer to Jesus is good; whatever brings us farther away from Jesus is bad. What about your hobbies, habits, friends – do they bring away from Jesus? Jesus is worth more. (27 Sep 2015)

Son of a gentle God (Baptism of the Lord)

Benjamin Homilies

The moment when Jesus was baptized in the Jordan river (Matthew 4:13-17) reveals to us that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, who is exactly like His Father in all things. Jesus is not the son of a violent or fighting god, but the Son of a gentle and peaceful God. In our baptism, we have been adopted as sons and daughters of our Heavenly Father. As Jesus reveals Himself during His ministry, He also challenges us to become more like Him in our thoughts, in our words, and in our actions.
