Hannah shows us that children are a gift. Jesus teaches that all are meant to give. A family must learn the Law of the Gift: Man cannot find himself except in a sincere gift of self. May your family be a holy family. [AUDIO]

Jesus Is Not Afraid Of The Dark (#605, Christmas)

Fr. Joel Homilies 1 Comment

The year 2015 was pretty dark. There’s plenty of darkness in the Christmas story too. Jesus is not afraid of the dark. He loves you and wants a relationship with you. He wants you to love him in return. Train yourself to look for the Light. [AUDIO]

Fr. Joel Homilies 1 Comment

Mary was humble enough to receive Jesus, obedient, and generous. When you go to a party, do you welcome guests like Elizabeth does? Do you bring Jesus along with you like Mary does? It’s time for Christmas parties: Eat, Drink, and be Mary. [AUDIO]

Jesus Is Closer Than Ever, Which is Good Because I Really Need a Savior (#603, Advent 3)

Fr. Joel Homilies Leave a Comment

If your Advent hasn’t gone well, that’s OK — we aren’t supposed to rejoice in ourselves. Just be generous, be honest, and be humble. That will be enough. God will do the rest. We need a savior, and He’s closer than ever. Rejoice! [AUDIO]
