Homily for March 16, 2016. Wednesday of the 5th Week of Lent Readings: Daniel 3:14-20,24-25,28, Daniel 3:52-56, John 8:31-42 For some days now, our Gospel passages have been rather dramatic. Jesus is not having it easy with the Jews and they are prepared for a show down with him. One by one they present to him the issues for which they feel he deserves to die and Jesus responds to them giving them the reasons behind his utterances and actions.

Homily for March 15, 2016. Tuesday of the 5th Week of Lent Readings: Numbers 21:4-9, Psalm 101:2-3,16-21, John 8:21-30 Every sin is an act of rebellion and rebellion begins with dissatisfaction. To rebel is to challenge authority and demand for certain privileges or benefits which one feels deprived of. When we begin to question whether or not God is being fair to us or allowing us enjoy as much as it is possible for us to enjoy, then we are seriously rebellious and this is the heart of every single sin we commit.
