Homily – Christmas Eve Vigil Mass
How does the Grinch continue to try to steal Christmas from the faith, or steal the faith from Christmas.
Homily – 4th Sunday of Advent
The Annunciation to the Blessed Virgin Mary
How does a poem by J.R.R. Tolkien, featured in “The Fellowship of the Ring” (Book 1 of “The Lord of the Rings”) reflect the same sentiment expressed by the Angel Gabriel during the Annunciation to the Blessed Virgin Mary?
In his Homily, Fr. Bill discusses an often overlooked detail in the Annunciation to Mary, it’s relation to the Annunciation to Zechariah immediately preceding it, and how Tolkien’s Catholicism was worked into his storytelling of the redemption of Middle Earth.
