02/21/21 To The Heart: Untamed and Untamable

Homily from the First Sunday of Lent.
God is not safe, but He is good.
Trust is a challenge for all of us. Trust in God is a battle that every person faces at some point in their lives. Often, we might find is easier to trust God if He were a ?tame god?, but He is not. This Lent, our invitation is to not only trust in God?s mercy, but also in His justice.

02/17/21 To The Heart: Escape or Embrace

Homily from Ash Wednesday.
Return to the Lord with your whole heart.
We are often tempted to run away from God and from difficult moments in life. We might even be tempted to escape from all that has been taken from us over the past year. But to choose to embrace this moment is to choose to embrace the Lord and His Providence.

02/14/21 Hindsight 20/20: The Cost

Homily from the Sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time.
Every choice comes at a cost.
Looking back, there are some things we could have known. And looking back, there are some things we could never have known. But one thing is unfailingly true when seen through hindsight: every decision comes at a price and every choice has a cost. Making the decision is risky, but there are things that are more important than staying safe.

02/07/21 Hindsight 20/20: In Good Times and In Bad

Homily from the Fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time.
Good times don?t last?and neither do bad times.
One of the many things that life teaches us is that life is always changing. To grow is to change. There are times that are good and there are times that are bad. All of us go through good times and bad times and neither of them are permanent. In both good times and bad, Jesus is Lord and He loves the person in a desperate situation and the person in a bright situation.

01/31/21 Hindsight 20/20: Worthless Knowledge

Homily from the Fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time.
I learned, but I didn?t grow.
Knowledge is powerful. Having lived through this past year, and looking back on what we have been through is essential. We can have learned a great number of things over 2020. But unless we are willing to act on that knowledge, hindsight will be powerless.

01/24/21 Hindsight 20/20: The Whole Story

Homily from the Third Sunday in Ordinary Time.
Editing is the enemy of how we remember the story.
We look back so that we can see clearly and learn from our past. But we also have a temptation to edit the story we tell ourselves. We might edit how we tell the story, but we must not edit how we remember the story.

01/17/21 Hindsight 20/20: The Moment Before the Moment

Homily from the Second Sunday in Ordinary Time.
We can?t predict The Moment, but we can prepare in the moment before The Moment.
While no one can predict the future, all of us can learn from the past. While none of us can control when the big moments of our lives are going to happen, all of us can choose what we are doing in the moments before The Moment.

01/10/21 You Are My Son

Homily from the Baptism of the Lord.
At the Incarnation, God joined His dicinity to humanity...at the Baptism of Jesus, God identifies with our brokenness.
What difference does the Baptism of Jesus make? It means that God doesn't stay away from our sins, but that He takes them upon Himself.

12/27/20 Holy Families

Homily from the Mass of the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary, and Joseph.

12/20/20 Silent Waiting

Homily from the Fourth Sunday of Advent.

12/13/20 "I Am Not"

Homily from the Third Sunday of Advent.
No one can take from you what doesn?t belong to you.
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.

Homily from the Second Sunday of Advent.
We can?t go back to the beginning of the story, but we can start where we are and change the ending.
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.

11/29/20 Be Here

Homily from the First Sunday of Advent.
God will not just get us through this moment?He has brought us to this moment.
Too often, we find ourselves just wanting this moment to be ?done." We miss out on the miracle of the moment because we see what is happening as something that is getting in the way of life. But this is life. There is not another one we are waiting for. We need to learn to trust that God is not just going to help us get through this moment, but that He has brought us to this moment.

11/22/20 Roadmap: Expect Delays

Homily from the Solemnity of Christ the King.

11/15/20 Roadmap: Checkpoints

Homily from the Thirty-third Sunday in Ordinary Time.
What have you done with what you've been given?
No one ever sets out to lose. But losing is entirely possible: in business, relationships, and in the spiritual life. It is possible to lose one?s soul. No one wants to lose, but many people do. Even with a great roadmap, we need regular checkpoints to make sure we are on course and haven?t gone off track.

11/08/20 Roadmap: Accident or Excellent

Homily from the Thirty-second Sunday in Ordinary Time.
Excellence requires making the decision carefully, consistently, and quickly.
The one question that can either deflate or motivate a person is ?When?? This question reveals whether our goal is an actual goal or merely a wish. But if we want to escape a life of accidents and craft a life of excellence, we need to make the decision of ?when? are we going to choose excellence carefully, consistently, and quickly.

11/01/20 Roadmap: Guardrails

Homily from the Solemnity of All Saints.
No one ever accidentally lived on purpose.
No two saints are the same. There is no ?cookie-cutter? path to holiness. While there are certain givens that must be present, each person has to assess where they are in their relationship with the Lord in order to know best where to place wise guardrails in their own life.

10/25/20 Roadmap: Reclaimed and Repurposed

Homily from the Thirtieth Sunday in Ordinary Time.
Holiness isn?t always changing your what as much as changing your why.
Our lives have been reclaimed by Christ and we have become a new creation. Because of this, every moment of our lives can be lived with and for a new purpose. Every moment can be repurposed to be a sacrament, and sacrifice, and an act of surrender.

10/18/20 Roadmap: Be A Saint

Homily from the Twenty-ninth Sunday in Ordinary Time.
The roadmap begins with ?Who?.
There is one true goal in life: to be a saint. Many of us believe this, but is there a path? Without a plan, we will certainly fail to hit the goal. Without a roadmap, we will spend our time on this planet wandering as if we neither know where we are or where we are going.

10/11/20 No Difference

Homily from the Twenty-eighth Sunday in Ordinary Time.
There are many goods. There is only one best.

Homily from the Twenty-seventh Sunday in Ordinary Time.
God has made you for freedom from anxiety over the unforeseeable future, the unchangeable past, and your present responsibilities.

Homily from the Twenty-sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time.
If you can choose your thoughts you can change your thoughts.

Homily from the Twenty-fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time.
It doesn?t matter how long you live. What matters is how you live.
Our lives will magnify (or highlight) something. Will they be so full of nice things that they will miss the most excellent things? Or will we be wise so that, no matter the outcome, Christ will be highlighted?

Homily from the Twenty-first Sunday in Ordinary Time.
The Church has influence even when it isn?t considered important.

04/11/20 Witnesses

Homily from Holy Saturday, the Easter Vigil.
We profess the faith today so we can persevere in the faith tomorrow.

Homily from Good Friday of the Lord's Passion.

Homily from Palm Sunday of the Lord's Passion.
Jesus has not removed suffering from our lives, He has redeemed the suffering in our lives.
Jesus accomplished the Father?s will in His passion, death, and resurrection. His mission of salvation is ?finished.?
