Anger, Lust, Divorce and the Remedy for them All!

February 16, 2020

Jesus came to show us how to love. Simply refraining from murder, adultery and divorce isn't all it takes to love. Love demands the whole heart. It demands a total and complete YES--to God and one another. This is the love we need to get to heaven. This is the love that will change our world.

Hungry and Naked

February 9, 2020

Mother Teresa defined the hungry as those who are unwanted, unloved and rejected.

Babies Should Be Baptized RIGHT AWAY!

Babies Should Be Baptized RIGHT AWAY!

January 12, 2020

Why was Jesus baptized? Why should a baby be baptized within days--not months or years? How do you answer the people who foolishly say, "Well, I want wait to have my child baptized until they are old enough to choose for themselves"? All of that and more in today's homily.

Mary Sees Her Son in Us…and Us in her Son

January 1, 2020

Mary is not a "distant" mother. She knows us personally. She loves us individually. And she waits to answer our prayers. If you don't feel close to Mary, there are some things you can do to rectify that in 2020...
