Obviously, our culture is fascinated by the SUPERHERO--that seemingly ordinary human who saves the world through extraordinary gifts.  WHY?  Could the call of Christ be buried in our fascination?  (Preached at Christ the King in Silver Spring at 10:30 am on May 13, 2018)

On the night before Jesus died, he left us THE great commencement speech.  We become graduates from the School of Jesus when we choose to do the one thing HE commanded: LOVE (Preached at Christ the King, Silver Spring on May 7, 2018 at 10:30 am)

The Risen Jesus asks the disciples, “Why are you troubled?”  The questions that trouble us are innumerable, but to every question—Jesus is the answer.  (Preached Sunday, April 15 at Christ the King, Silver Spring)

The entire Good News of Christianity is rooted in Easter FAITH.  Christians REALLY believe that Jesus Christ rose body and soul from the tomb on Easter Sunday.  However, like St. Thomas we have our doubts, this homily explores how we might strengthen our faith in the Resurrection.  (preached at Christ the King on April 8, 2018 at 10:30 am)

Discouragement is the favorite tactic of the Devil to turn us away from God.  Here’s two ways to cast out that demon: Surrender to God’s love, and LOVE in order to surrender.—Preached February 4, 2018 and dedicated to my sister Kelly (RIP 2/3/11).

Casting out demons is a central part of Christ’s ministry.  Where have they all gone?  Look in the mirror and in the silence of the heart.  Christ comes to cast them out.

Every 2nd Monday of January, the USA rightly celebrates the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.  This homily focuses on Reverend King--a disciple of the Lord and a preacher of Christ's Gospel.  Reverend King demonstrates how to be faithful servants of Christ by doing three things: FOCUS, COMMIT and TRUST.  (Preached at St. Augustine's 12:30 mass on January 14, 2018)

Our Blessed Mother demonstrates how we can all have a merry Christmas and put skin on Christ.  We need to do simply two things: Say NO to regrets of the past and fear of the future AND Say YES to the Mission of the Moment

The Catholic mass begins with a greeting of PEACE, and throughout its celebration peace punctuates the major parts.  Indeed, Jesus Christ is the Prince of PEACE who comes to give us that peace that surpasses all understanding.   But when the world seems to be falling apart, how do we remain in Christ's peace?  (Preached on October 8, 2017 at St. Augustine's 12:30 mass).
