What Do Rainbows and Wedding Rings Have In Common? (#814, Lent 1)

Fr. Joel Homilies 2 Comments

First Sunday of Lent • God said to Noah and to the whole earth: I take you to be my people, I promise to be faithful to you in good times and in bad, in sickness and in health… At Baptism God says these same words to us. Will you be faithful to God, as He has been faithful to you?

Point to Ponder: You and God have a history together. What are some of the signs, sounds, or images, that remind you of God’s love for you?

Point to Discuss: It can be hard sometimes to believe that God is 100% faithful. Discuss with a friend the lies or doubts that sometimes get in the way of trusting yourself completely to God.

Point for Action: Bring a bottle of Holy Water home from church and bless yourself and your family daily.

    Another beautiful homily Fr. Joel. You always dissect the Gospel in ways that make more sense to me. Your examples and how you tie it all together help me understand how to be a better servant.

    Missed you at the Cathedral today.
