Homily from Ash Wednesday.

Lent is tough. Fasting is tough. Christianity is tough. Jesus reveals that His Heart is soft when it comes to our weakness. If we are willing to come out of hiding and fully give our entire selves to Him, He can make our hearts whole in the midst of our littleness.

Homily from the Eighth Sunday in Ordinary Time.

If we knew the future, very few of us would make foolish decisions. But very few of us make decisions in the first place. Many people prefer to be carried along by other peoples’ decisions and by the circumstances of life. But wise people make decisions. And they make these wise decisions without knowing the future. Instead, they look at their past, their present, and where they would like to end up. And then they choose. This choice does not have to be a leap…sometimes it is just a step.

If the Church is truly the body of Christ, then everything we do must have some effect on the body, even those acts we think nobody sees. Fr. Mike shares how this may be tough to acknowledge when it comes to sin we wish only affected us privately, but he also points out how all the good we do that nobody sees is empowering the Church in some way as well.

An external guide can be helpful and, at times, necessary. But we are called to move beyond the external boundaries to an internal freedom. By choosing the good, we become more and more free to choose the good. By choosing wisdom, we become wise.

Homily from the Fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time.

If salt loses its taste, it is no longer salt. It has lost something that is un-losable. In the process of becoming wise and crafting a masterpiece, there are a number of important elements.
