What is the Reason for the Season? The Answer Will Surprise You | #1003

Fr. Joel Homilies

Advent 3 – Jesus comes to rescue us from lies of the Enemy. God has not abandoned you. Your sinfulness is the reason for the season. We can trust God. If your Advent season has proven your need for a savior, then Rejoice, because the Lord is near.

Look What You Find Hidden In The Ordinary | #903

Fr. Joel Homilies

Advent 2 – God hides extraordinary grace, joy, and blessings in everyday life. It was only when St. Anthony had accepted being an ordinary monk that he started to truly live an extraordinary life for God. Embrace the ordinary, and look what happens.

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

Fr. Joel Homilies

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]
