+318+ The Church is Serious about Love (Lent 2)

Fr. Joel Homilies Leave a Comment

Love is Sacrifice: we lay down our lives for the Beloved. Marriage, Sex, and Babies form a “Love Triangle.” If we choose one, the others come with it. This is why sex outside of marriage is wrong: Because the Church is serious about Love. (24 Feb 2013)

Four Things the Church is Serious About, part 1: The Church is serious about Mass on Sunday. Deliberately missing Mass on Sunday is a mortal sin. Don’t spiritually starve to death. Come to Mass on Sunday. (17 Feb 2012)

+316+ Remember you are Dust (Ash Wednesday)

Fr. Joel Homilies Leave a Comment

Lent, Ash Wednesday – The Church is in the business of fundamental change. We call it “repentance.” Repentance starts when we remember we are dust, and to dust you will return. Now is the time to start preparing for that moment. (13 Feb 2013)

+314+ Eucharistic Prayer: Heart-to-Heart (Family Mass 4)

Fr. Joel Homilies Leave a Comment

Jesus wanted to give his friends the very best, so He gave them himself. The Mass is the Last Supper and Calvary and the Empty tomb. He comes to give us His own heart, and He only asks for one thing in return: Will you give God your heart? (3 Feb 2013)

+313+ Wholehearted Disciples (4th Sunday)

Fr. Joel Homilies Leave a Comment

Ordinary Time, 4th Sunday – Jesus predicts that the people of Nazareth will reject him — and they do! You can’t sing half-heartedly, you can’t love half-heartedly, and you can’t be a disciple of Jesus half-heartedly. Can we love as God does? (3 Feb 2013)
