You Won’t Always Be a Caterpillar (#723, Easter 2)

Fr. Joel Homilies

The early Church gathers around the Risen Lord and leads others to faith. Faith gives us a glimpse of our final destiny. We are like caterpillars preparing for a transformation into butterflies. Don’t worry: even your wounds are glorious. [AUDIO]

The Dead Will Rise (#718, Lent 5)

Fr. Joel Homilies

It’s never too late for Jesus. The whole world will know that Jesus is Lord when he returns on the last day to raise the dead. That’s what Christian funerals are all about. But you can experience the Resurrection now by inviting Jesus in. (2 Apr 2017)

A Rabbit and the Resurrection (#618, Easter Sunday)

Fr. Joel Homilies

Never underestimate the power of God! The Risen savior changes our lives forever. Just like it changed the life of the little rabbit who started leaving colored eggs for people to find. Learn to live the Resurrection every day, every week. [AUDIO]

The Secret to Survival in the Desert of Temptation (#612, Lent 1)

Fr. Joel Homilies

Jesus journeys from a mountain-top experience of God through the desert of temptation into the Promised Land. How does He survive? He never stops listening to God. Fill your heart with the Word of God. Keep listening to God’s Word. [AUDIO]

FrBen – Three signs Jesus lives (Ascension)

Benjamin Homilies

After he rose from the dead, the disciples saw Jesus ascended into Heaven. Although Jesus is in Heaven right now, He is still with us here on earth and He is already reigning as king of this world. I can point to three signs that Jesus is lives: Pope Francis’ recent meeting with Patriarch Bartholomew I, Pope Francis inviting Shimon Peres and Mahmoud Abbas to the Vatican, and the ordination of two new priests, because priests continue Christ’s priestly power in the world. These are three signs in the world that Jesus lives, but every Christian is called to be a sign that Jesus lives. We must be signs in our homes, shops and businesses.
