The homilies below are notes. They are my preparation for preaching. Sometimes they are complete texts, sometimes they are outlines, but they always differ from the delivered message. I write these out so that I can practice, and in practicing they often improve. Still, these are often the only physical copy I have of my various homilies, so I have chosen to post them here for reference. The various and sundry other topics that may be addressed here are my opinions alone, and do not reflect the official position of my parish, my Archdiocese, or any other Catholic body beyond myself.
Jesus is the center of our lives and the savior of the world. Following him means asking what he wants, rather than what we want.
Even when God's children abandon him, he responds with patience.
In times of crisis, the only solution that will work is to turn back to God and make him the center of our lives.
God planted a seed of grace at our baptism, but we have to be willing to grow if we ever want to see fruit.
When we cut ourselves off from God and the Church, we cut ourselves off from the source of love and forgiveness.
We desired to offer ourselves to God, but since we could not, we offered animals instead. This act of sacrifice was holy. How much more so is the sacrifice of Christ?
Wherein I name drop and then rehearse Saint Augustine's argument for the Trinity from "God is love".
