COVID: 3 YEARS LATER – The “Lazarus Bookends”

Homily – 5th Sunday of Lent (A)
John 11:1-45 – The Raising of Lazarus

The last time the “Raising of Lazarus” was read at Sunday Mass the World was in the midst of Covid Lockdowns and a Spiritual Death-of-Sorts. Three years later, as we hear that Gospel story again, where are we now, how far have we come? Fr. Bill preaches on Jesus call “that they may have life and have it more abundantly”, and whether or not we have truly risen from this “death” from a disease that was “not to end in death” but that “the Glory of God may be revealed.”

HATING FATHER AND MOTHER – Putting Jesus in the Back Seat

Homily for the 23rd Sunday of the Year
Luke 14:25-33

Jesus tells us we must “hate” our Mother and Father if we are to be His Disciples. Fr. Bill preaches on the meaning behind Jesus words, under what circumstances they were first heard and written, and how they are still relevant to Christians today.


Sunday Homily
7th Sunday of the Year
Luke 6:27-38

Followers of Christ do not do what sinners do, or tax collectors, or pagans, or popular opinion, or “the majority of people.”

Fr. Bill reflects on the Catholic response to the Pandemic and how Catholics can redeem themselves in how they move on from its immanent end.
