Discount Discipleship | #941

Fr. Joel Homilies

Ordinary 23 – Marriage and discipleship both require a total gift of self. If you try to negotiate a lower ‘cost’, you’ll find these relationships constantly frustrating. If you’re not afraid to pay the price, the rewards are out of this world.

God said to Noah and to the whole earth: I take you to be my people, I promise to be faithful to you.. At Baptism God says these same words to us. Will you be faithful to God, as He has been faithful to you? (18 Feb 2018)

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

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]

Giving and Serving Makes Us Like God (#547, 29th Sunday)

Fr. Joel Homilies Leave a Comment

To be like Jesus, we have to be willing to join him in giving and serving without looking for a reward. When we do, we are pleasantly surprised at what we receive. Because giving and serving generously makes us like God Himself. (18 Oct 2015)
