Homily 10/20/19 — Send Up Scripture for Powerful Prayer

October 20, 2019

You've heard the physical law: what goes up must come down.  But there's also a spiritual law: what goes down must come up.  Our Epistle (2 Tim 3:14-4:2) tells us about what comes down, which is God's Word, and our Gospel reading (Luke 18:1-8) encourages us to send it back up.  Isaiah 55 sets the background for this important dynamic in redemptive history as God accomplishes his work through our prayers.

Homily 9/15/2019 — A Compelling Witness of the Cross

September 18, 2019

In the Gospel of John, Jesus says, "I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me." This refers to the crucifixion. How is it that the cross--an instrument of torture and shame--becomes something that draws people? Jesus draws people to himself when the power of the cross is present in our own lives.  

Delivered on Holy Cross Day.  The Solemnity of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross is our Feast of Title.
