Grandparents in the Family of God (#507, Holy Family)

Fr. Joel Homilies Leave a Comment

Simeon and Anna are like Gandparents. They give the Holy Family Wisdom, Prayer, and Joy. Grandma gave me wisdom and joy this Christmas. We are all God’s family — may the elders and the young both inspire one another. (28 Dec 2014)

Fr. Joel Homilies Leave a Comment

The Son of God looks like… us! He reveals Who God is and Who we are. The family is a portal into Heaven. So is Mass, where we the Son of God in our hands. We can experience the Peace and Joy of our sonship whenever we give glory to God in the highest.

Fr. Joel Homilies Leave a Comment

Why is this birthday so important? The Shepherd became a sheep to save us from the wolf and bring us peace and joy. At every Mass we experience the miracle of Christmas: a God so small and innocent, you can hold Him in your hands. (25 Dec 2014)

Bring This to Your Christmas Parties (#504, Advent 4)

Fr. Joel Homilies Leave a Comment

God promises David a kingdom “forever” and Mary receives the fulfillment of God’s promise. God wants to do in and through You what he did in and through Mary. Christ dwells within us. Care for this presence of God and carry it to others. (21 Dec 2014)

Hope: God’s Already Got This (#503, Advent 3)

Fr. Joel Homilies Leave a Comment

“The one who calls you is faithful; he also will accomplish it.” Our hope rests in God, who has already been taking care of us. This gives us the confidence to trust Him with our future. When I can’t, God can, and He will, and He is. (14 Dec 2014)
