Homily from the Third Sunday of Easter.

We often move from one thing that dominates our time and attention to the next thing that dominates our time and attention. When we realize that Jesus Christ has ransomed us from our sin and from all that dominates our lives, when we realize that He is present and active, when we realize that He is still teaching and feeding us, then we live lives of reverence and meaning.

Homily from the Sunday of Divine Mercy.

The Little Way of Saint Terese is “little the entire way.” This means coming face to face with struggles and wounds we may battle our entire lives. With our confidence firmly centered on Jesus, we can love God as much as He possibly can be loved by our wounded hearts…by our hearts with holes.

Homily from Good Friday of the Lord’s Passion.

Jesus allows himself to be humiliated for us. Our shame isolated us. And the isolation is often greater when the shame is hidden or exposed but not understood. Jesus embraces both forms of shame. Because of that, we do not need to fear to embrace Him.
