Advance Preparation

I'm sorry for my silence here on the blog lately. The past month or so has been crazy. In fact, I've driven 5,000 miles in the last month. Life is trending towards settling down a bit, so hopefully I'll be posting more homilies here.

Over the last couple of days, Jesus has been pretty intense in the daily gospel readings. HERE's my homily from daily mass this morning.

Faith and Humility

HERE is my homily from today, where Jesus talks about how our faith could be stronger. And for reference, here's the Collect that I quoted in the homily:

Almighty ever-living God,
who in the abundance of your kindness
surpass the merits and the desires of those who entreat you,
pour out your mercy upon us
to pardon what conscience dreads
and to give what prayer does not dare to ask.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.

There are several things we can pull from the Gospel today. HERE's my homily where I talk about a few things that caught my interest.

Our Lady of Sorrows

Today we celebrate the feast of Our Lady of Sorrows, where we honor the pain and sorrow that Mary went through as she herself experienced her Son's Passion. HERE's my homily from the day.

Exaltation of the Holy Cross

Today is the Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross. This feast commemorates Helena, mother of the Emperor Constantine, finding the True Cross of Christ. On this feast we honor the Cross not as a means of torture and execution, but as the means of our salvation. HERE's my homily from this morning's mass.

I Received What I Handed On

I LOVE the first reading from today's Mass. It has done a lot to help me appreciate how awesome and ancient the Eucharist actually is. HERE's my homily from this morning.
