What can we learn from the lessons of our National Heroes as Americans, and our Heroes in Holiness as Church? Fr. Bill gives a vision for a post-election 2020 America in which the Church, by the example of American Heroes and Catholic Saints, can itself be an example for our fellow countrymen and the world in moving beyond our differences and moving forward as a nation.
We pray for vocations, but how do we pray?
Does the shortage of priests and religious in our parishes and schools mean that God is ignoring our prayer?
Is God punishing the Church?
Or has God, in fact, been answering our prayers all along?
Fr. Bill talks about the vocation shortage in light of Jesus as the Good Shepherd
The Parable of the Prodigal Son is about a forgiving Father with TWO Sons. Each of which takes up half of the Parable. But on which Son was Jesus focusing the point of his Parable and where are the clues to this in the passage?
Fr. Bill offers in his Sunday Homily a different take on who the real focus of the Parable is and the implications it has not only for those to whom Jesus directed the Parable, but for us who hear it again and again in the modern world.
