Throughout the Gospels, we find a Jesus who frequently spends long, intense hours in prayer--communing with His Father  and receiving strength for his ministry.  Do we pray like that?  Do we know how to step aside and rest with the Lord?  This homily explores Christ's command to PRAY  (Preached at St. Matthew's Cathedral on July 22, 2018 at 11:30 mass)

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)
