December 11, 2016.mp3   The Gospel of Matthew 11:2-11 continues the story of John the Baptist and his role in proclaiming Jesus Christ as the long-awaited Messiah.  We, too, would probably think John was nuts based on how he appeared. John knew his purpose in life. He focused on his mission.  But, as he sat in prison John began to have doubts. He sought to know the Truth. Do we hunger for the Truth?

December 4, 2016.mp3  Fr. Gerry looks at the imagery present in today's Gospel Matthew 3:1-12. He asks these questions — Were John & Isaiah lunatics? Were they judged by appearances only? Then, he looks at our image of God — Is my image of God as One to be feared or One to be loved?
