2nd Sunday of the Year – God Gives Good Gifts – Catholic Inspiration

Three Great Things

Fr. Andrew’s 2nd Sunday of the Year Homily Podcast

At the wedding at Cana the Lord’s miracle of water to wine shows that God gives with quality and generosity.  This notion of gift is picked up in Paul’s 1st Letter to the Corinthians.  These precious gifts – given by God – are meant to be used.  Our invitation today: to acknowledge the good things Christ has given and put them into practice.


A quick shout out to my nieces and nephews who made my vacation so much fun and who shared their Scripture insights with me – that was a gift that I found truly precious!

  • Paul LaLiberte

    Thank you, Fr. Andrew. You make a truly important point here, that we often take for granted…our gifts. Perhaps we don’t know what they are but by sharing them with the community, we learn more about their importance, especially when we get feedback and encouragement. We also need to encourage others who are exercising their gifts by encouragement and kind words. Criticisms often seem to be easier and that is an evil influence at times if the criticism is negative or not up building. I spent most of my working career being an analyst who had to critique people’s performance (or lack of it) and frankly it was much easier to find issues than great performance. Thank you for addressing this subject. I do have a question as to where you were in Indiana. We have a daughter and her family who live in Terre Haute, IN. Perhaps your sister and her family live there? Her name is Elizabeth Collins. Her husband is a professor of Theology at St. Mary of the Woods College. Thanks also for exercising your gifts!!
