Homily from the Nativity of Our Lord (Christmas).

Homily from the Second Sunday of Advent.

Christian joy is more than a feeling. It is the sense of well-being that is the fruit of something else. It is the fruit of a life lived in God. A life “lived in God” is eminently practical; it simply involves the honest prayer, “Father, Thy will be done”. If a person lives this prayer in every environment, one can experience the joy that thrives in any environment.

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.

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.
