Lent: Exposure - Homily for March 11

Today we recall the 40 holy martyrs of Sebaste who were stripped naked and exposed to bitter cold until their death. Today the Lord invites us to expose our hearts and souls, no longer hiding behind our fear, guilt, shame, or pride, but conquering all for love of Jesus Christ.

Lent: God is Fierce and Merciful - Homily for March 4

Readings for Sunday, March 4 / 3rd Sunday of Lent (Year B):  Exodus 20:1-17  |  Psalm 19  |  1 Corinthians 1:22-25  |  John 2:13-25

Today the Lord shows us in the Scripture that He is not 'fierce or merciful' but both fierce AND merciful. Let us draw close to this fierce Heart of Christ and allow His passion for us to increase our passion for Him.
