Homily from the First Sunday of Advent.

God desires your happiness. But this happiness is more than mere pleasure and more than mere emotion. True joy, like true love, is a decision. Joy is the sense of well-being that is the result of the certain expectation or possession of one’s heart’s desire.

Isaiah 2:1-5
Psalm 122: 1-9

Homily from the Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe.

Home isn’t home unless someone is there. And Heaven is not Heaven without God. Other people are one of the great joys of Heaven, but the Greatest Thing is not merely “others”, but “The Other”. The heart of Heaven is God Himself.

“I believe in the resurrection of the dead.” That means your resurrection. God has destined us to get our bodies back at His final coming. But what will those bodies be like? How will they be changed? How will they be new? The answer is hidden in what Christ’s body is like.

Homily from the Thirty-second Sunday in Ordinary Time.

Without Heaven (and Hell), life is essentially meaningless and Death wins. The Resurrection proves that Death is not the last word and that the wisest way to live in the “Here and Now” is oriented towards “There and Then”. But what will Heaven be like?

Homily from the Thirty-first Sunday in Ordinary Time.

The Christian Faith will never be relevant if it remains at the level of private, personal belief and does not transform our lives. Faith is meant to move us. Faith is meant to transform us. Faith is meant to bear fruit in a life that looks like the life of Jesus. The fruit of faith is a changed life. A faith that works is a faith that moves…and this is the only kind of faith that matters.

Homily from the Thirtieth Sunday in Ordinary Time.

Are you stuck in the trap where you have to do enough, so that you have enough, in order to be enough? If faith merely comes down to presenting God with our resume, then we are not faithful…we are superstitious. Christian faith is appealing to Jesus’ work, not ours. Christian faith is about appealing to Jesus’ victory, not ours.Christian faith is about appealing to Jesus’ goodness, not our own.

Homily from the Twenty-ninth Sunday in Ordinary Time.

Every great story needs a beginning. But it needs more than just a beginning. A great story requires tension, obstacles, and patient perseverance. When we give God our “yes”, even when we don’t know how the story will end, we are walking the path of faith. This path is necessary to become the people God will us to be. But it is easy to forget and hard to remember the reasons we are walking in the first place. Because of that, we all need reminders in our lives who call us back to our “yes”.

Exodus 17:8-13
Psalm 121:1-8

Homily from the Twenty-eighth Sunday in Ordinary Time.

Faith is first of all a response. It is the response to an encounter with God. In a completely free way, God reveals Himself. Intellectual faith responds with “I believe you”. Living faith responds with “I want to behave in the way you are calling me to”. Simple faith responds with “I belong to you”. Ultimately, faith is “saying yes” to God.

Homily from the Twenty-seventh Sunday in Ordinary Time.

It’s not that we don’t have enough gifts, it’s that we waste a lot of them. Once we realize that we have gifts and that God will bring about “divine appointments”, every interruption becomes an opportunity.
