Homily - 19 February 2017 - What Does It Mean for Us to Imitate the Perfection of God the Father? SERVANT AND STEWARD - February 19, 2017 The Seventh Sunday in Ordinary Time (A) Dear brothers and sisters, It has often been said that we are not called to perfection because, as humans with a fallen nature, we cannot be perfect. Such a claim, of course, stands in stark contradiction to the words of Our Lord who today commands us to "be perfect, just as your heavenly Father is perfect" (Matthew 5:48). We know that Jesus never commands us to do what is impossible, so what does it mean for us to imitate the ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/OhEL/~3/HHCoGYkWAgs/homily-19-february-2017-what-does-it.html

Leviticus 19:18 "You have heard that it was said, You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy. But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your heavenly Father, for he makes his sun rise on the bad and the good, and causes rain to fall on the just and the unjust.

Green Light on the Confessional CRISIS MAGAZINE - February 13, 2017 ... Saturday afternoon. While I would love to say that this represents the profundity of holiness among contemporary American Catholics, I'd have to confess lying if I did. I think that, in America and much of the West, the nexus between liturgy and personal holiness has become tenuous, and that would represent a real misunderstanding of the former. The fact that reception of communion is commonplace while the sacrament of Penance has fallen into crisis in many places suggests that my observation ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CrisisMagazine/~3/7uTg2Vgm_Qg/green-light-confessional
Homily - 12 February 2017 - On Hearts Chilled by Sin and the Warmth of Spring SERVANT AND STEWARD - February 11, 2017 The Sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time (A) Dear brothers and sisters, The return of warmer temperatures this weekend after the recent snowfall has stoked my hopes that the season of spring may soon be upon us. The ancient Anglo-Saxons would not have disagreed with this hope. In fact, they would argue that spring has already come, for they held the season we associate with sunlight and joy actually began five nights after Candlemas, the Feast of the Presentation, meaning that ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/OhEL/~3/qGgIzop-a0E/homily-12-february-2017-on-hearts.html

How You Can Be Like John the Baptist (Sunday Homily) BONFIRE OF THE VANITIES - December 11, 2016 ... happier. Now, back to John the Baptist. We know very little about what he did with his life, apart from a few details. So what makes him so great? And the answer is really simple: he had a call from God, a unique role to play in God's Plan, and he answered it. As measured by worldly standards, his accomplishments might not seem like much. Let me put this in modern terms. Suppose someone we knew decided to walk away from everything, and go out into the woods and build a shelter, and live there. ...http://frmartinfox.blogspot.com/2016/12/how-you-can-be-like-john-baptist-sunday.html
