God is with us (and God cares!) – Christmas

Benjamin God & Faith, Homilies

Jesus was born in a little shack, at the edge of town, and Mary and Joseph probably thought that nobody at all would notice them…until the shepherds showed up. We might think that nobody notices and nobody cares, but God notices, and God cares, and God’s angels are always around us. Because of this truth, we should not be afraid of anything, and we should let God help us with everything.

+309+ The Hero with the Huge Heart (Christmas)

Fr. Joel Homilies

Christmas, Mass at Midnight – We need a hero. Jesus has only one superpower: unconditional love. He is the antidote — not of violence, guns, or aliens — but fear and hate and selfishness. He shares His love with us and we become invincible. (25 Dec 2012)

Christmas Day – God has a Human Face | #107

Fr. Joel Homilies

Christmas Day – God has made a covenant with Noah, Moses, Abraham, David. God has been faithful even when his human partners have been unfaithful. Now God has a human face. He takes our side of the covenant, reveals God’s face, and shows us our destiny.

Christmas Eve – Whoever Takes The Son Gets Everything | #105

Fr. Joel Homilies

Christmas Eve – We asked for love, joy, peace, help, forgiveness… and he sent us Baby Jesus instead. Why would God send us a baby? Whoever welcomes the Son gets everything else along with Him. Is there room in your home and your heart for Jesus?
