Series: CompariSIN

Comparison is the thief of joy.

Too often, we allow comparison to rob us of the joy, the relationships, and the lives that the Lord wants us to have.

11/17/19 CompariSIN: Stealing Joy

If comparison is a thief of joy, then we have to learn how to steal it back.

Homily from the Thirty-third Sunday in Ordinary Time.

In the battle to escape the comparison trap, we can become invincible to bad comparison by actively looking for the blessings, giving thanks, and inviting others into celebrating them. Because there are some things worth celebrating.

11/03/19 CompariSIN: Infinitely Preferred

What makes them so great? What makes me so awful?

Homily from the Thirty-first Sunday in Ordinary Time.

When someone else being honored or loved more than we are meets our insecurity, we are tempted to tell stories…about them and about ourselves.  But when we know who we are and are grateful for what we have, we have security. And comparison is powerless.
