Homily for March 30, 2016. Easter Wednesday. Bible Study: Acts 10:1-10 and Luke 24:13 -35. Going through our readings this morning, we can see that a lot went into the training of the disciples of Jesus before they became Great Apostles. In Mark chapter 9, we read about an embarrassing episode wherein a man brought his son to the disciples of Jesus for healing because the boy was possessed with an evil spirit but they couldn’t. Surprisingly, as we see in our first reading this morning, Peter and John met a crippled man by the Beautiful Gate who was begging for alms and they decided to give him the best gift ever; the gift of his healing.

Homily for March 19, 2016. Solemnity of St. Joseph, Husband of Mary Bible Study: 2nd Samuel 7, 4 to 16. Romans 4, 13 to 22 and Matthew 1, 16 to 24. In God’s plan of salvation for mankind, it was his will that his son Jesus Christ would be born as a man, raised as a man and die as a man that humanity as a whole may be saved. This was a plan that took thousands of years to execute, a plan that even prophets who were lived centuries before Jesus spoke about.
