Finally We Can Be Together in Flesh and Blood | #1034

Fr. Joel Homilies

Corpus Christi – For 12 weeks we could only be together virtually. Now we can be together in flesh and blood. God desires to be with you in the flesh, so he created the Eucharist. Don’t just take Communion; enter into Communion with the God who loves you.

Ordinary 4 – Today our guest homilist, Bishop Ricken, kicks off the annual Bishop’s Appeal. If we really lived what it means to be a “Catholic”, that second reading would apply to us. How is God calling YOU to be a missionary of hope?

Filled With the Spirit, How Can We Fail? | #852

Fr. Joel Homilies

Ordinary 31 + TEC Anniversary – God commands us to love Him because He made us to love and be loved. But it’s humanly impossible! So God has sent the Holy Spirit into your heart. Listen to the Holy Spirit. He will transform you into God’s likeness.

Your Gift Fit for a King (#808, Epiphany)

Fr. Joel Homilies Leave a Comment

The Magi respond to God’s love with their own gifts of love. At Christmas we receive God’s gift of love; at Epiphany we give back our own gift of love. Let us open our treasures and give God the gift of almsgiving, prayer, and sacrifice. [AUDIO]

Receiving and Spreading the Good Seed (#733, 15th Sunday)

Fr. Joel Homilies 1 Comment

God is a generous sower. We need to be good soil: open to receive, willing to persevere, and free from spiritual clutter. A good crop gives off good seeds. Parents and Catholic schools help plant good seeds in the hearts of children. [AUDIO]

We Have No Idea How Much God Suffers (#721, Good Friday)

Fr. Joel Homilies Leave a Comment

We have no idea how much God suffers, because we have no idea how much God loves us. Jesus takes our sins and buries them in the tomb. “I love you this much,” says Jesus, and he stretches out his hands and dies for you. [AUDIO]
