O God, I Thank You That I Am Not Like This Pharisee | #948

Fr. Joel Homilies

Ordinary 30 – St. Paul was a great Pharisee. But then he was knocked off his horse and repented like the tax collector. He started a relationship with Jesus and was transformed into a mature disciple. Is your life being poured out like a libation?

There is no such thing as a perfect tree but maybe it just needs a little love. Christmas is all about God’s love. If we are humble enough to receive God’s love, then we can really start rejoicing. Joy to the World! [AUDIO]

The Jesus Prayer (#650, 30th Sunday)

Most of us are in danger of believing in our own righteousness. St. Paul knows that he is nothing without God; all he has is a gift from God. Perhaps he spent a lot of time praying: “Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me a sinner.” [AUDIO]
