Putting the You in Eucharist (#729, Corpus Christi)

Fr. Joel Homilies

God provided for us on the walking pilgrimage. Our sacrifices bore much fruit. Sacrifice is necessary to build communion with God and others. You in communion with Christ; You in communion with Christians: This is Eucharist. [AUDIO]

Before Eating Ask Yourself This Question (#720, Holy Thursday)

Fr. Joel Homilies

Though none of us is worthy we all share in the priesthood of Jesus Christ. Christ’s presence in the Eucharist and in charity is an invitation. Before you take from His table ask yourself: am I prepared to return the gift? [AUDIO]


You Are What You Eat (#630, Corpus Christi)

Fr. Joel Homilies

The Trinity gives himself to us in the Eucharist. Under the appearances of bread and wine hide the Body and Blood of Christ. The bread is changed so we can be transformed. Are you allowing yourself to become the Body of Christ? (30 May 2016)


Marriage, Miracles, and Banana Peels (#607, 2nd Sunday)

Fr. Joel Homilies

Marriage begins in the Garden of Eden. Chastity preserves marriage from the corruption of sin. This is the first wine. The Sacrament of Matrimony is the new wine: an image of the love of God himself that desires a One Flesh union with us. [AUDIO]

Don’t Leave Jesus Standing at the Altar (#539, 21st Sunday)

Fr. Joel Homilies

Marriage is that is a gift that is Total, Faithful, Fruitful, and Free. Jesus gives everything even to His flesh and the last drop of His blood. How do we respond to Jesus’ gift of himself? Don’t leave Jesus standing at the altar! (23 Aug 2015)


More Than $10,000,000 and a Diamond Ring (#538, 20th Sunday)

Fr. Joel Homilies

(feat. Deacon Michael Thiel) Jesus says “Eat Me!” and we do at every Catholic Mass. What if Father gave out $10,000,000? What if you heard “The Body of Christ” with the same enthusiasm as “Would you Marry Me?” Are you excited for Communion? (16 Aug 2015)


Love So Extravagant, You Can Almost Taste It (#531, Corpus Christi)

Fr. Joel Homilies

Christ offers his Blood to purify believers and make us “blood brothers” with God. This one sacrifice is present whenever you have priests who are descended from the Last Supper. At Mass God’s extravagant love becomes so real, so present, you can almost taste it. (7 June 2015)


I Know Jesus is Risen Because I see Him Within You (#521, Easter Sunday)

Fr. Joel Homilies

Where is Jesus? He is with us on the road and at the Mass. Every Sunday we practice for Heaven. Keep searching for Jesus and He will find you. Receive Him and others will find Him within you and say: Christ is Risen! (5 Apr 2015)
