Dec 05 – Homily – Fr Angelo: Build Your House on the Rock of Jesus Christ
Homily #131205n ( 07min) Play - In today's gospel we are told to build our house on the rock and not the sand. Fr. Angelo explains that the Rock is Jesus Christ, and to build on that Rock is to listen to Christ's teaching and to act on them. To do this we have to look to the other "Rock" - the Successor of Peter, the Pope, and the teachings of the Church. It is not enough to believe in the words of Jesus, we must put them into practice by lives of prayer, penance, works of corporal and spiritual mercy, and by living in Communion with the Lord.
