  • Covenant Eyes. The most reputable and effective internet accountability and filtering software.

Homily for the Solemnity of Mary, the Holy Mother of God


Mary is the Mother of God. She truly is the Theotokos. All she wants is for us to understand, love, and follow her Son, Jesus.

Homily for the Thirty-third Sunday in Ordinary Time


What are you doing to build up the Kingdom of God?

"The organic union in [the body of Christ] and the structure of the members are so compact that the member who fails to make his proper contribution to the development of the Church must be said to be useful neither to the Church nor to himself" (Vatican II, Decree on the Apostolate of the Laity, Apostolicam Actuositatem, 2)

"A Christian who in these times is not a revolutionary is not a Christian" - Pope Francis

Homily for the Thirty-second Sunday in Ordinary Time


Keep the light of faith you received in baptism burning brightly. Walk always as a son or daughter of the light. Keep the flame of faith alive in your heart so that when the Lord comes, you may go out to meet Him with all the saints in the heavenly kingdom.

Do this through prayer, the sacraments, study of the faith, and good works.

The spiritual and corporal works of mercy.

Homily for the Thirtieth Sunday in Ordinary Time

“You shall love the Lord, your God, with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the greatest and the first commandment. The second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. The whole law and the prophets depend on these two commandments” (Mt 22:37-40).

Homily for the Twenty-sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time

The parable of the two sons. One says he won't go work in the vineyard, but then does. One says he will, but then doesn't. Be the third son, who says he'll go, and then actually goes to do the will of the father.

Dangerous prayer: "God, I give you permission to speak to me and reveal to me what I need to change in my life to know and love you more. God, I give you permission to speak words to me that I don't want to hear right now. And give me the grace to make those changes."
