Homily #150627n ( 04min) Play – Father speaks of the faith of the centurion in today’s Gospel, and encourages us to hold on to this faith as the western world is abandoning it (particularly clear in yesterday’s Supreme Court ruling on gay “marriage”).

Jun 26 – Homily – Fr Matthias: Pope Francis and Mercy

Friday, June 26th, 2015
Click to Play

Homily #150626n ( 07min) Play – Several weeks ago, Pope Francis used the passage of Jesus healing the leper, the Gospel of today’s Mass, to speak of the mercy of God. He said that God meets us where we are at, in our sin and selfishness, but does not leave us there. Accepting God’s mercy also means moving towards Him, and God gives us the strength as we step out to follow Him. Jesus is not cruel, and to leave a sinner in their sin is cruel. If we don’t see this, it is because we don’t understand what sin is. Let us all walk that path that leads from the Bad to the Good, from the Good to the Better, and from the Better to the Best, that is, to loving union with God Himself.
Ave Maria!

Homily #150625n ( 03min) Play – Today Gospel reading is a wake-up call, Fr.
