Homily from the Second Sunday of Advent.

“Jesus came to actually give us freedom from that besetting sin, from that thing that just keeps holding us back from having that kind of joy, and the kind of life, and the kind of freedom that you know you want. So the question is this: why not purify your environment? I am going to ask you to do this one thing. What is that one besetting sin in your life right now? What is one thing that you can do tonight right after Mass to change your environment and open up the way for the Lord? To get the obstacle out of the way?”
