Twenty twenty has been a year like no other. It’s been difficult for us all, but there is reason for hope. As Catholics, we anticipate Christ’s birth, and we anticipate His second coming.  

12/13/20 “I Am Not”

No one can take from you what doesn’t belong to you.

Homily from the Third Sunday of Advent.

We all have the temptation to pretend to be someone or something other than we are. To pass ourselves off as someone else…to be an imposter. We do this most often when we know the truth but live in fear of the truth. John the Baptist shows us what it looks like to know the truth and live in the freedom of the truth.

12/07/20 Legacy

We can’t go back to the beginning of the story, but we can start where we are and change the ending.

Homily from the Second Sunday of Advent.

Saint Peter reveals that the Day is coming when The Story will have been written. On that day, everything will be revealed and we will know God’s hidden role in every moment of The Story…and we will know the truth and consequences of our roles in The Story. We will know our legacy.
