Series: Interrupted

Could it be that God wants more for our lives than we want?

For many of us, the primary goal in life is to be happy. But what do we mean by “happy”? More often than not, we mean “comfortable”. Often, we mean “left alone” to do what we want. Could it be that God wants more for our lives than we want?

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.

Homily from the Twenty-sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time.

As Catholics, we believe that people matter. The world has been changed by Catholic Christians who did more than just believe this truth; they allowed this truth to interrupt their lives and they acted on it. What is the difference between them and us? It is threefold: we are too busy to notice, too numb to care, and think we are too small to matter. What if that changed?

Homily from the Twenty-fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time.

An interruption is anything that takes our attention away from one’s primary task. But what if you don’t know your primary task? Or what if you aren’t living for your primary task? Are there some interruptions that might bring our attention back to the task we are supposed to be living for?

Homily from the Twenty-fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time.

What happens when our plan encounters God’s plan? No one likes interruptions, but they are a part of life. God is the Great Interrupter. Because we all know this, we can find ourselves doing all that we can to avoid the true God…the God who interrupts our lives.
