06/15/14 To Be A Gift

Homily from the Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity.

"What makes a man a father is when he takes responsibility for someone other than himself. ... But here is the question: who do we normally live for? If we had our choice, if we could get away with it, who would we normally live for? We would live for ourselves, right? And yet who you are, who we all are, we are actually made to live for another. ... In the Gospel today, John 3:16, 'For God so loved the world that He gave"..., that's it, to be a gift. 'God so loved the world that He gave His Son.' And what did His Son do? He 'so loved the world' that He gave His whole life. And the Father and the Son loved the world so much that what did they do? They gave the Holy Spirit. God, because He is Love, is all about gift! He takes responsibility for those whom He loves and He gives Himself for them. So the question is this today: who in your life are you taking responsibility for? Who in your life are you a gift for right now?"

06/01/14 Make A Disciple

Homily from the Solemnity of the Ascension of the Lord.

"Here is the thing: a disciple is practical. I believe in Jesus. Which means that I have a relationship with Jesus. How healthy would a marriage be if a person were to say whenever they were asked, 'Are you married?' and they say 'Absolutely I am married,' but they haven't talked to their spouse in a year? Would that be a healthy marriage? How healthy would a marriage be if a person were to say whenever they were asked 'Are you married?' and they say, 'Absolutely I am married, I've been married for years,' but they can't remember the last time that being married made a difference in one of their decisions? How they spent their time, how they spent their money, how they chose to do this instead of that. That's not a healthy relationship, that's not a real relationship! Here's the thing: how healthy would a disciple be if they were asked, 'Are you Catholic?' 'Oh yeah man, I was born Catholic! I was raised Catholic, I went to Catholic schools for cryin' out loud. That's how Catholic I am!' 'When was the last time you prayed?' 'Last Sunday.' And you've heard me ask this question or say this thing before, but I'll ask it again or say it again: if this is the first time that you are praying since last Sunday, you're not a disciple. If this is the first time that I am praying since last Sunday's Mass, I am not a disciple of Jesus. If I haven't made space for Christ on my calendar, if being a Christian hasn't changed my schedule at all in the last week, then I am not living like a disciple."
