A Life Without Jesus is Pointless | #1010

Fr. Joel Homilies

Ordinary 2 -You will not begin to truly live until you have found something, or someone, worth dying for. The earlier missionaries and martyrs of La Florida were willing to die for Christ. Jesus is the point. A life that doesn’t point to Him is pointless.

It’s Not About The Red Team vs The Blue Team | #845

Fr. Joel Homilies

Ordinary 26 – Politics is not a sporting event between a red team and a blue team. And Jesus does not want to talk about what those other people are doing wrong. Jesus wants to focus on you. A sense of mission helps us see things from God’s perspective.

The Trinity Is Our Identity and Our Mission | #829

Holy Trinity – The One God, Lord of the whole Universe, is also our God, a community of persons. Baptism invites us into God’s community of love. Live your life, and every moment, in the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.
