+409+ Should Christians be Tolerant of other Religions? (2nd Sunday)

Fr. Joel Homilies

We shouldn’t tolerate the spread of lies. But our neighbors, no matter what they believe, deserve to be treated with dignity and respect. Christians must love their neighbors enough to tell them the truth about Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit will help us to share that we know the truth because we have met Him face to face.

+408+ Listen to the Voice of God, and this is what we Hear (Baptism)

Fr. Joel Homilies

Baptism of the Lord: Where do babies come from? They come from God, who is the Lord of all Life. God has a greater gift — the gift of His life. Look at the life of Chiara “Luce” Badano, how it was transformed by love of God. Listen to the voice of God, and this is what you hear: “I love you… isn’t that enough?”

+407+ An engagement ring from our King (Epiphany)

Fr. Joel Homilies

Jesus has come for all people. He is the true Priest, the true Prophet, and the true King. But the gift of Jesus is so much more than just a child in a manger. God has promised to accompany us all our life — much like an engagement ring. Jesus fully plans to teach us, lead us, and die for us. That is why at today’s Mass we announce the upcoming feasts from the next year: There is so much more to come.
