30th Sunday in Ordinary Time October 25, 2015 Mark 10: 46-52 Bartimaeus wants to see. It’s odd that he would be named in today’s Gospel. The people Jesus healed were usually named by their ailment: the blind man, the woman with a hemorrhage, the leper, the man with the crippled hand. Bartimaeus must have been .. read more

Fr. Steve’s homily (09/27/2015)

Un-repented sin has consequences; it leads to damnation, to hell, which was commonly called “Gehenna.” • The word originally referred to a valley on the outskirts of Jerusalem that had been used for human sacrifice during royal apostasies in Old Testament times. • By the time of Christ, the valley had come to be used .. read more

Fr. Steve’s homily (09/13/2015)

“You are thinking not the way God thinks, but the way human beings do.” One of the most difficult challenges in the life of a Christian is the need to move from a life guided by human wisdom to the acceptance of God’s way of doing things. There is nothing wrong with human wisdom and .. read more

Jesus ordered everyone to keep this amazing miracle under wraps. Jesus knows the tendencies of our fallen nature. He knew that too many reports of miracles and prodigious events would lead people to think of him merely as a wonder-worker. They would feed the impression that he had come to create paradise on earth, that .. read more

Jesus is not a consultant; he is the LORD! The people of Israel who heard both Christ’s and the Pharisees’ teachings could not follow both. It was becoming clearer by the day, as Jesus went about his public ministry, that he was demanding an undivided allegiance. He was the one declaring “God’s commandment,” and anyone .. read more

St John tells us, in today’s Gospel passage, that our Lord’s teaching about the Eucharist, which we have been following over the last few Sundays, was so difficult, so shocking, that “many of his disciples” simply refused to accept it. As a result, they stopped following Jesus and returned to “their former way of life.” .. read more

Our Savior promised to remain with his Church “until the end of the age.” He has fulfilled this promise is the topic of today’s Gospel passage: the Holy Eucharist, which we celebrate during every Mass and receive through Holy Communion. To keep our human nature alive, we need natural food; to go without eating is .. read more
