Pentecost Homily 2019

Posted by on Jun 13, 2019 at 8:39 pm

Two things I pray and ask the Holy Spirit to grant me, most everyday. Greater faith and greater love. Let faith be the vision that defines your life. Let true charity be the fire that guides your actions. Building your life on anything less than true faith and true love from Jesus are a liar and a thief. A liar who seeks to bind your soul and a thief who seeks to steal your soul away.



Readings from Pentecost Sunday.

Homily from 10:30am Mass at Pius XII Newman Center.

God desires a fruitful life with us. To do so, he warns us against worldliness. He speaks to us to imitate our Lord Jesus who set aside the lust of the eyes, lust of the flesh, and pride of life. Yet- how do we get caught in it? Also, a bit about Theodore McCarrick.

What does God desire? He desires for your soul to be wed to Himself, the Holy Trinity, in a fruitful union that assists in His redemption for the world. If you believe in the Scriptures, then you must believe in and seek to accept our Lord’s intent to draw you to Himself and to rejoice over you as a groom rejoices over his bride.
