Full Text: Homily for the 5th Sunday Lent

Summary: We too are called to believe in not just Jesus’ resurrection, but our own. We too are called to love God so that we can rise from our earthly death to spend eternity with Him in Heaven. God wants to raise us up from where ever we are; from whatever spiritual deaths or illness we have. He wants to give us His spirit so that, like Lazarus, we can rise to new life

Homily for the Fourth Sunday of Lent (March 18, 2012)

Full Text: Homily for the 4th Sunday Lent

Summary: For this homily, I asked the young kids to come up and sit at the bottom of the steps. So the questions in this homily were asked of the kids sitting there. Love, in a fallen world, demands sacrifices of us. Jesus shows us infinite love when He sacrifices everything on the Cross for us. Jesus sacrifices Himself on the Cross to give us the grace not just so that we can have faith in Him, but that we can be transformed into the holy persons He created us to be. (See Ephesians 2:8-10 from the second reading)
