Fr. Gerry's Weekly Homily

December Homilies

December 31, 2017.mp3  Fr. Gerry reflects on celebrating The Holy Family, and what it means to be Holy — it means related to God. All families truly are Holy. Mary and Joseph were not spared from difficulties, hardships and fears though they were the parents of the Christ Child. But, they show us how to be in harmony & in communion with God; how to hear Him and be responsive to Him.

December 24, 2017.mp3 Fr. Gerry reflects on Mary's great calling and how she didn't know what great hardships she would face by saying yes to God's plan. He relates this to two common expressions of our day, "Things are not always how they appear to be." or "If I had only known, I would have done things differently."

December 17, 2017.mp3  Fr. Gerry reflects on the ministry of John the Baptist and how he heralded the coming of Jesus. Jesus never commanded we go to church. So, why do you come to church? Fr. Gerry invites everyone to send in your answer to that question.

December 10, 2017.mp3  Fr. Gerry asks us to remember these five words: Fellowship, Discipleship, Ministry, Evangelization, Worship.  He plans to speak on these words again in the coming weeks. This Homily is helping us prepare for the coming of Christ — He who is like us in all things but sin. Only in the Grace of the Holy Spirit can begin to grasp this enormous event of God choosing to become one like us in our world so He could lead us to the Kingdom He has prepared for us.
