2017 Homilies

 
August 13, 2017, Nineteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time
Baptism of Kamia Canty
Homily by Father Joseph Pearce, CO
 
Father tells us we often can see God in the extraordinary events and happenings of the day, but we fail to see Him in the ordinary events of the day. Elijah sees God not in the fire, or the violent wind, or the earthquake, but saw him in the simple, gentle quiet sound. Also, Jesus came not appearing as a royal king, but a simple, ordinary man. The extra-ordinary was hidden in Him, which most failed to see.

August 6, 2017, The Transfiguration of the Lord
Homily by Father Paul Brenninkmeijer, OSB

Father told us that 72 years ago today, Transfiguration Sunday of 1945, a man pressed a trigger that would transfigure the course of world events, forever, irrevocably. It was the same feast we celebrate today. He was speaking of the dropping of the atomic bomb on Hiroshima. President Truman ordered has long since experienced his transfiguration with the Lord, and Paul Tibbets, who actually dropped the bomb died on All Saints Day, 10 years ago at the age of 92. Father says that it is the time that each of us have to transform the lives of untold numbers. Our actions, or inactions have far reaching implications.
