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.

September 10, 2017.mp3 Fr. Gerry returned from Ireland! He reflects on today's Gospel MT 18:15-20, particularly the very first sentence — "Jesus said to his disciples: 'If your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault between you and him alone.'" Most of us have learned not to go to the person directly who offends us. Listen to Father Gerry explore this way of doing.
While Fr. Gerry is on vacation, we do not have recorded homilies from our visiting priests. Recorded homilies by Fr. Gerry will resume on September 10th.
