September Homilies

September 24, 2017.mp3   Matthew's Gospel today is certainly challenging! Jesus teaches us through the parable in MT 20:1-16 with the story of the laborers and the generous landowner who pays the same wages to the latecomer workers as the earlybird workers. When the earlybirds complain, the landowner asks, "Are you envious because I am generous? Thus, the last will be first, and the first will be last.” Listen to Fr. Gerry's reflections on this.

February 2017 Homilies

February 26, 2017.mp3   Today Fr. Gerry focuses on the Readings. Isaiah assumes a mother can never forget her child. God our Father never forget any of us either. But, we sometimes feel maybe God has abandoned us when we face extreme hardship. But, God doesn't divert these troubles. Rather, He walks with us. We just tend to turn to Him when all else has failed. Worry doesn't serve us, yet still we worry.
