Advent Series

Joy is the gigantic secret of the Christian.

Joy is unique to Christianity.  In fact, it was Christians who introduced joy to the world.

Homily from the Third Sunday of Advent.

Is it possible to love without conditions? Is it possible to have faith without conditions? Is it possible to have joy without conditions? When we love to love God for His own sake, unconditional joy can be a reality.

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.
