We cannot get rid of our bad habits on our own. With God though, anything is possible. God really can remove our defects of character. Ask God to do so, so that come Easter morning, we too can rise to new life

Homily for Ash Wednesday (February 22, 2012)

Click here for the homily – Ash Wednesday

Fasting is a very useful tool in our journey to holiness. It teaches us to be in control of our desires instead of our desires being in control of us. When our desires are in control of us, it is called addiction. Fasting is only required by those Catholics between the ages of 18 and 59. Abstaining from meat on Ash Wednesday, Good Friday, and other Fridays of Lent is required by those who are 14 years of age and older.

Jesus is not infected with leprosy, but instead, by His touch, the leper is healed. We need to be holy so that we, with God’s grace, we can heal the world instead of the world infecting us.

We Need to Fight the Coercive HHS Mandate

Some people have asked me what they can do about the HHS mandate, the one that is going to require Catholic institution to give health policies that conflict with our pro-life beliefs. This mandate flies in the face of the first amendment, freedom of religion. This does not allow Catholics to freely practice their faith.

Homily for the Fifth Sunday of Ordinary Time (February 5, 2012)

Jesus and Paul were compelled to share the healing message of Christ. We too must share with others the healing power of Christ. We must speak the Truth and speak it boldly. This is especially true when it comes to the current presidential administration trying to force employers, even Catholic employers to offer health care that covers abortions, sterilizations, abortion-inducing drugs, and other things that go against the Catholic understanding that every child is a gift from God and has infinite worth.
