Homily for the 25th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Beloved:
Where jealousy and selfish ambition exist,
there is disorder and every foul practice. 

Where do the wars
and where do the conflicts among you come from? 
Is it not from your passions
that make war within your members? 
You covet but do not possess. 
You kill and envy but you cannot obtain;
you fight and wage war.

The Jews murmured about Jesus because he said,
"I am the bread that came down from heaven, "

Homily for 16th Sunday in ordinary time

 

Dearly beloved, we thank God who by his mercies has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavens. We thank him who has made it possible for us to gather in his presence as one big family. We recall in the book of Genesis; chapter 12 when God chose Abraham and the Jewish nation from among all nations.

2nd Corinthians

 

Dearly beloved, two weeks ago, while celebrating fathers’ day, I used the occasion to encourage you to read the Second letter of St. Paul to the Corinthians. I hope, definitely not all, but some, took the opportunity with the background we looked at to read. I did say we will take time again this Sunday to give a summary to the rest of the book. Those who did read will find additional insight to many of the things you have read already.
