2/26/17 Eighth Sunday in Ordinary Time - Fr. Reggie

We would all like to be free from worry and anxiety.  But Christ's words in today's Gospel passage seem too good to be true. He tells us to stop worrying about the things we all worry about - material, worldly things, what he calls "mammon." "Mammon" comes from a Greek word...

02/26/17 Eighth Sunday in Ordinary Time - Fr. Damian

The words of Jesus in today's Gospel reading have been called the most beautiful in all of Scripture and the most impractical. Yet, they are very down to earth. The Lord hurls into our lives a striking and stark challenge. No one can serve two masters. We cannot serve God and "mammon." The Aramaic word, "mammon," signifies...

2/19/17 Seventh Sunday in Ordinary Time - Deacon Ron

Homily Summary for 7th Sunday in OT ~ Deacon Landry   Although I struggled with Mathematics, my professor assured me that with work, persistence and extra help I would succeed. Math has always been a matter of fear and failure for me. He did not tell me that this would result in an 'A', but that I would succeed. I got a 'C' on a test...

2/19/17 Seventh Sunday in Ordinary Time - Fr. Damian

A part of the Gospel that is perhaps the most difficult for us to follow is the Lord's teaching to love our enemies. We can love our neighbor. We can love the disadvantaged. We can love those we perceive to be inferior to us. But to love the enemy, the one who intentionally harmed us, is very difficult to do. The Lord addresses something we...

2/19/17 Seventh Sunday in Ordinary Time - Deacon Tony

Deacon Tony Conti Seventh Sunday in Ordinary Time Lectionary: 79   Our readings today call us to both holiness and to perfection… And we’re going to explore how both of these virtues are intimately related to the virtues of mercy & love… But before we talk about what holiness is – Perhaps we should talk...

02/12/17 Sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time - Fr. Damian

We have a gospel reading that is challenging and life-giving. Last week, we heard the Lord say that we are to be the salt of the earth, the light of the world. We aren't light to the world if we say, "Well, I don't murder people, I don't commit adultery, I don't perjure myself.” Most people on earth do not murder, commit adultery or...

2/12/17 Sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time - Fr. Reggie

In today’s First Reading Sirach reminds us that our life, from here to eternity, is built on our choices. The Lord created us as free beings, but with freedom comes responsibility. We always have to “own” what we have done and what we have failed to do, which is why we make a Penitential Act at the start of every celebration of...

2/5/17 Fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time - Fr. Damian

The Lord says that we are supposed to be the "salt of the earth" and "the light of the world." In fact, it's a compliment we use today when we say that someone is the "salt of the earth." Yet, we know there is nothing so inedible, so unhealthy as salt all by itself. During a famine, you can't eat it. In a drought,...

1/29/17 Fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time - Fr. Reggie

One theme unified all of Pope Benedict XVI's homilies and speeches since the publication of his last encyclical, "Saved by Hope." He had been talking to us, his spiritual children in Christ, and also to the rest of the world, insistently about one thing: hope. Hope is a supernatural virtue. That means that...

1/22/17 Third Sunday in Ordinary Time - Fr. Damian

Jesus said to them “Come after Me and I will make you fishers of men,” and at once they left their nets and followed Him. These days, we would like to go into psychological detail about the emotional needs of Peter and Andrew and their inner journey of searching for something, reaching out for more. We love to speculate about the...

1/22/17 Third Sunday in Ordinary Time - Deacon Tony

Deacon Tony Conti Third Sunday in Ordinary Time Lectionary: 67   From today’s Gospel… “…the people who sit in darkness have seen a great light, on those dwelling in a land overshadowed by death light has arisen.  From that time on, Jesus began to preach and say, ‘Repent, for the kingdom of...
