Fr. Andrew’s Daily Mass Homily – Tuesday of the 2nd Week of Easter

Daily Mass Readings

The reading from the Acts of the Apostles reveals the unity of “one heart and mind” that the early Church practiced in the days following the Lord’s resurrection.  Empowered by the Holy Spirit, the first followers of Jesus Christ shared their goods in common, worked together, and dedicated their efforts to building up one another.  What a great image for us to keep before us in our lives today!


Catholic Inspiration – Advent Retreat – Seeking the Face of Christ

Three Great Things

I have begun to include podcasts of my homilies and talks.  Forgive me if the formatting is a little awkward…I am learning!

This Advent reflection was one of the talks given at a retreat that was offered on December 6, 2014.  Six categories are touched upon in this talk:

  • Sacraments
  • Scriptures
  • Prayer
  • Service
  • Sacrifice
  • Fellowship

These areas are meant to help us do two things:

  1. Grow in our ability to see the Face of Christ
  2. Strengthen us to loving serve Christ wherever we see him
