We begin a New Day! (9am)

Readings for Today

In education, endings and beginnings are really important. Today we begin a new season in the Church, the first one of a new liturgical year. When starting a lesson, teachers seek to provide an overview of what they will be doing. During Advent, we are given a time by the Church to think about what we need to do to improve our spiritual life. All goals should have a simple goal: to become closer to Jesus.

Homily recorded at Our Lady of Lourdes Parish, University City, Missouri on March 10, 2019.

Readings for Today

Saint John Chrysostom.  The Golden Tongue.  But not such an easy person to live with.  For preachers, today reminds us that it is rarely, if ever, about us.  It is about the Holy Spirit.  And the temptation is to think, as preachers, that if we can just be a little more clever, a little more clear, we too will have great success with the people of God.

But the ultimate goal of any preaching is to foster a deeper connection between us and Jesus.  And this is the role of the Holy Spirit.  We can never forget that.  As preachers, a homily is about the action of the Holy Spirit.
