Marriage is for Children (#545, 27th Sunday)

Fr. Joel Homilies

Human beings were designed by God to mate for life. Marriage creates a safe place for children, which is why children hate divorce. Jesus calls us back to our childhood innocence. Come to him, let him heal you, and do not forbid others. (4 Oct 2015)

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)

+324+ Servant is Lord is Servant (Holy Thursday)

Fr. Joel Homilies

The Lord of the house lived in luxury; the servants lived simple lives. But Jesus, the true Lord, chooses to serve. He invites us to do the same. A husband washes the feet of his wife and family when he uses his authority to serve them. Let the Lord serve you that you might serve others.

+318+ The Church is Serious about Love (Lent 2)

Fr. Joel Homilies

Love is Sacrifice: we lay down our lives for the Beloved. Marriage, Sex, and Babies form a “Love Triangle.” If we choose one, the others come with it. This is why sex outside of marriage is wrong: Because the Church is serious about Love. (24 Feb 2013)
