Homily for Mother’s Day, 2023
6th Sunday of Easter – Year A
Fr. Bill offers a Homily for Mother’s Day in which he discusses modern connotations of “love” with the Love Jesus speaks of in the Bible.
Regarding Saints and other Heros of Church History
Homily – 2nd Sunday of the Year – A
Fr. Bill preaches on the different accounts of John the Baptist between the Four Gospels and what we can learn about the possible historical dynamic between Jesus, John and their respective followers, and the final resolution regarding both men’s role in the overall plan of God.
Fr. Bill reviews the recent divisions within the Catholic Church as well as the recent, elongated, election of the Speaker of the United States House of Representatives and discusses how the dynamic of both is more similar than we realize, and how such a dynamic is, in fact, beneficial for both the Leadership of the Catholic Church, and the Governance of the United States.
Fr. Bill threads the needle between the observance of Veterans Day, the Feast Day of St. Martin of Tours (celebrated on the same day) and the results of Election 2022. He draws upon history, even recent history to find a purpose in the direction our country is headed in light of the results of the 2022 Election, the sacrifice of our Veterans, and the example of such Saints as Martin, William of Gellone and other Saints who were Military Veterans.
Fr. Bill discusses the “Spirit” behind Halloween, regardless of multiple origins from which it emerged and counters the popular notion that it is a Pagan feast celebrating Death, Evil and the Devil
The Parable of the Unjust Judge
Homily for the 29th Sunday of the Year
Jesus tells us to be persistent in prayer, like the Widow was persistent with the Unjust Judge who refused to give her justice. Fr. Bill preaches on what it means to be persistent in our prayer to God, while, at the same time, being open to multiple possibilities of how God will (or will not) answer.
The Parable of the Dishonest Steward
Homily – 25th Sunday of the Year – C
Jesus wants his followers, the Children of Light, to be just as shrewd and clever as the Dishonest Steward of the Parable. Fr. Bill preaches about what it means to be shrewd and why it is important as we bear witness to the Gospel to the anti-Christian world into which Jesus has sent us.
