Fathers and God's Love

I've been wanting to preach on Father's Day for three years or so and it's never happened. On this 12th Sunday in Ordinary Time, I finally got to do it. HERE's my homily for the day. Happy Father's Day, dads!!!

Salvation, and How We Get It

Today's readings present important lessons on faith/justification/salvation, which in the end is really the question of how I get to heaven. We want to avoid the simplification of, "Well, as long as I'm a good person," and actually understand the issues at play, as presented by the Bible and the words of Christ himself. HERE's my homily for the day.

Jesus and the Widow of Nain
