Homily - 4th Sunday of Year C

by Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Akalue

In this homily, Fr. Emmanuel considers the mission and vision of the Church in relation to Christ's Ministry imbued with the spirit of diversity, "catholicity", from the very beginning. As probably the most diverse parish of Orlando diocese, our diversity especially in ethnicity or/and language needs to be appreciated as a source of our strength. The Holy Spirit bestowed this diversity at Pentecost - many languages to proclaim one faith (cf. Acts 2:1-10). This proclamation must always be exercised in LOVE. God is love and anyone who abides in love abides in God. There's always room for growth in our commitment to love as God loves. May God bless our priests, deacons, staff and wonderful volunteers for all your unrelenting dynamic and excellent contributions toward the growth of our lovely parish in Jesus' name. Amen.

Homily - 4th Sunday of Year C

by Rev. Fr. Tom Shea, csc

In this homily, Fr. Tom skillfully reflects on what the prophetic ministry fulfilled by Christ means for each believer. Providing examples of inspirational "prophetic" figures in our time, he encouraged each one to gradually step out of his or her usual comfort zone and reach out to practice the most important virtue: LOVE. We're not to be scared of people different from us, especially refugees. We can reach out in a loving way as Christ would have done and share in their story. Love conquers all prejudices and fears. Love never ends.

Homily - Friday 3rd Week of Year C

by Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Akalue

Christ explains to us the nature of how we're saved, how we enter the Kingdom. It's like how a seed sown in the ground sprouts and grows gradually until harvest or how a planted mustard seed later grows gradually into a large tree. In each case, Christ shows our salvation into the Kingdom is a process; it's a journey (God is patient). We don't just "claim it." We can't just declare prematurely: "I'm saved!" The race is not yet ended; harvest time has not come. Presently, we're in the process of "being saved" (cf. Acts 2:47; 27:20; 1Cor 1:18; 2Cor 2:15), namely we're on the path leading to our ultimate salvation in heaven. So we need to continue to persevere in the Word and sacraments; also in good deeds of love, mercy, tolerance, good will, participation in worship; namely, stewardship of time, talent and treasure - and above all, trusting in God's love and mercy. Never give up your faith because of present human challenges or weaknesses; never stop going to church simply because you're not perfect. The Jubilee Year of Mercy helps to show the church is a spiritual hospital where God treats the wounded and heals them. May God help us to repent promptly rather than adding sin upon sin under the guise of "cover ups" or "damage control" like David did in our First Reading. Lord, save us from the sin of presumption and pride. Help us to enjoy the fullness of Your mercies, through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Homily - St. Thomas Aquinas, Priest and Doctor of the Church (Memorial)

by Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Akalue

"As we continue our Jubilee Year of Mercy journey, today's Memorial of St. Thomas Aquinas invites us to reflect on one crucial way the mercy of God will be assured in our lives, HUMILITY! David was humble in our First Reading. He didn't allow his kingship to get into his head. He remained obedient and humble to God through God's prophet, Nathan. Accordingly, God blessed him and his descendants through the prophetic words and prayers of Prophet Nathan. In like manner, St. Thomas Aquinas was humble. He didn't allow his high learning or intellectual prowess to get into his head. He bowed to the teaching authority of the Church Christ founded and God gave him manifold blessings. May we follow in the path of the saints also so that the mercies and favors of God will abound in us and in our family line for all eternity, through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Homily - Wednesday 3rd Week of Year C

by Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Akalue

"He has showed you, O man [woman], what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?" (Micah 6:8; RSV). Lord, help us to serve you in humility as David did and as Jesus exemplified in His teaching and example. May we always acknowledge that all we have and are are Your gifts and favors. Do not reward us according to what we deserve but in Your mercy fulfill Your plan for our salvation out of the abundance of Your riches and glory, through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Homilía - Tercer domingo del Año C

por diácono Albert Gutierrez

“Hoy, se ha cumplido este pasaje que acaban de oír.” En esta homilía, Diácono Alberto reflexiona sobre cómo estas palabras se hicieron una gran sorpresa para el pueblo judío. Aquí, estaba proclamando su misión. Cristo ha venido a actualizar el amor y la misericordia de Dios en nuestras vidas. La misión de Cristo es para el bien de todos, no para la condenación de nadie. Es la misión de proclamar la buena noticia a los pobres, “a sanar a los quebrantados de corazón; A pregonar libertad a los cautivos, Y vista a los ciegos; A poner en libertad a los oprimidos; a predicar el año agradable del Señor” (Lucas 4:18-19; RVR60) Hemos sido bautizados por el Espíritu Santo y llamados para identificarnos con la misión - para ayudar a todos en nuestro tiempo.

Homily - 3rd Sunday of the Year C

by Deacon Bill Wanca

"Today, this scripture passage is fulfilled in your hearing." Deacon Bill, here, reflects on what it meant originally to the Jewish people that Christ - the hope of all peoples, the long awaited hope of the ages - was actually one of their own. The Israelites realized God never abandoned them after all; He was concerned with their wellbeing. Christ has come to actualize this love and mercy of God in their lives. We have been called to become extensions of Christ - to reach out to all in our time. Christ wants to touch people's lives through you and me. "Think about it!"

Homily - 3rd Sunday of the Year C

by Deacon Tom Flavell

"Hello, are you Jesus?" a blind woman whose items were mistakenly knocked down asked the only man who stopped to help (even at the risk of missing his flight). Against this background and backed by the liturgical readings, Deacon Tom reflects on our Christian calling to be "other Christs" or "other Jesus(s)" to one another and to the world. We're not only to BELONG to the church; we're to BE church to others. We have been gifted in the Holy Spirit to reflect Christ's values and ministry, not just in words/worship but also in our simple/concrete acts of love, compassion, mercy and empathy. That's the real mission of proclaiming the Good News to the poor, liberty to captives, recovery of sight to the blind, letting the oppressed go free and proclaiming the Lord's Jubilee Year of favor, mercy, love, protection, security and blessings. When was the last time somebody mistook you for Christ? Be Jesus to all!

Homily - Friday 2nd Week of Year C (Pro-life Day)

by Rev. Fr. Emmanuel

On this 43rd anniversary of Roe versus Wade, the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion, we unite with all persons of good will to pray against the ills of abortion and contraception. It goes without saying that God is Pro-Life. In the words of Jesus Christ, "The thief comes to steal, kill and destroy; I have come that they may have live and have it abundantly" (John 10:10). In this Jubilee Year of Mercy, we pray for the Legal Protection of the Unborn and for Protection of Life from Womb to Tomb. Mercy and compassion should not be denied any child in the womb. That's the Principle of Fairness (the Golden Rule). I'm eternally grateful to my mom for not aborting me. I hope it's the same for all of us, including our Presidents, our Congress Men and Women, our Supreme Courts and other Courts Justices and the entire populace all over the world. The baby in the womb is a human being. In this scientific era, nobody can reasonably deny it any longer. Thanks to ultrasound imaging technology! And for us, people of faith, we know God cannot lie. For the Word of God declares: "Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you; before you were born, I consecrated you..." (Jeremiah 1:5). Let us pray for repentance and forgiveness for all, that gradually God will bring about a new springtime of appreciation of life all over the world, through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Homily - St Agnes, Virgin & Martyr (Memorial)

by Rev. Fr. Emmanuel

Agnes from the Latin word, "agnus", means "lamb." She was killed - sacrificed like a lamb - at a tender age for her faith and purity. It clearly evokes the Mission of the Christ - the Real Lamb of God - who suffered and died in order to reconcile the world to the Father. On this Memorial of St Agnes, therefore, we are reminded of our vocation: "Behold, I send you out as lambs in the midst of wolves" (Luke 10:3). May we always be lambs and peacemakers in all our relationships and ministry (just as Jonathan - the son of King Saul also exemplified in our First Reading by shielding David from his father's malicious plot to shed innocent blood). May we resist the urge to become the wolves and troublemakers. Jesus declares, "The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly" (John 10:10). The Devil is the thief and destroyer but Jesus is the Lamb who gives life and wholeness. In sending you and I into the world, He commissioned us to become life-giving instruments. Are you going to follow Jesus through your words and actions in the family, in your relationships, in the Church and society; or do you choose to become devil-incarnate and make life miserable for others? Remember, "Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons [and daughters] of God" (Matt 5:9).

Homily - Wednesday 2nd Week of Year

by Rev. Fr. Emmanuel

Where do you put your trust (amidst the prospects, problems and challenges of the world) - In man/woman or in God? What examples can we learn from David in the First Reading and most importantly from Jesus in the Gospel passage? The Psalmist declares, "Some boast of chariots, and some of horses; but we boast of the name of the LORD our God" (Ps 20:7). He goes on to provide this candid advice: "A king is not saved by his great army; a warrior is not delivered by his great strength. The war horse is a vain hope for victory, and by its great might it cannot save" (Ps 33:16-17). Accordingly, concludes the Psalmist, "Those who trust in the LORD are like Mount Zion, which cannot be moved, but abides for ever" (Ps 125:1). May God protect and preserve you against the challenges of life in Jesus' name. Amen!

Homily - 2nd Sunday of the Year C

by Fr. Aland Jean

Mary used her gift to intercede for the couple in Cana and also to prepare the stewards in advance to obey Jesus: "Do whatever he tells you." Jesus used His gift to show compassion and changed water into wine. What is your gift you need to put at the service of God and His Church?


Sun, Jan 17, 2016

Homily - 2nd Sunday of the Year C

by Rev. Fr. Emmanuel

Just as we have our natural marriage (or our Catholic Christian marriage), we also have Mystical Marriage - God's Marriage to His People. Yes, God is our Husband - Christ is our Bridegroom - and we are His bride, His wife. What a phenomenal way Prophet Isaiah, in our First Reading (Isaiah 62:1-5), used this beautiful image of marriage for explaining our relationship with God! Hence, our Catholic Christian marriage is truly a "sacrament" of the ultimate marriage of the Lamb to His People in Heaven. We'll no longer be forsaken or desolate. In God, the "right person" has finally come; He will fulfill every desire of ours. We'll be called by a new name pronounced by the mouth of God. What a privilege to have God's name as our Last Name, to be named after God! Awesome identity! We're not "nobody"; we are "somebody" in Christ. It really means Everything! To God be the glory!!! Lastly, in marriage situation, the husband and wife complement each other with their unique gifts and qualities from the Holy Spirit. Mary used her gift to intercede for the couple in Cana and also to prepare the stewards in advance to obey Jesus: "Do whatever he tells you." Jesus used His gift to show compassion and changed water into wine. What is your gift you need to put at the service of God and His Church?

Homilía - Segundo domingo del Año C

por Padre Tom Shea, csc

¡Qué una extraordinaria forma Profeta Isaías, en la primera lectura (Isaías 62:1-5), usa esta hermosa imagen del matrimonio para explicar nuestra relación con Dios! No seremos abandonados o solitarios. En Dios, la "persona adecuada" ha venido finalmente; realizará cada deseo nuestro. Seremos llamados por un nuevo nombre pronunciado por la boca de Dios. ¡Impresionante identidad! ¡A Dios sea la gloria!!! Por último, en caso de matrimonio, el marido y la mujer complementan con sus regalos y cualidades del Espíritu Santo. María utiliza su don para interceder por la pareja en Cana y también para preparar los comisarios a obedecer a Jesús: "Hacen lo que él les diga". Jesús usó su don para mostrar compasión y cambió agua en vino. ¿Cuál es tu regalo que tienes poner al servicio de Dios y su iglesia?

Homily - Friday 1st Week of Year C

by Rev. Fr. Emmanuel

"Your Word [O Lord] is a lamp for my feet and a light for my path" (Psalm 119:105). This line should be our personal maxim, axiom, motto or philosophy as we continue our faith journey. The Church is a unique society - a sacred reality; different from the civil society. Not everything approved by the civil society under the guise of "diversity" or "civil rights" is God's Will for us (Abortion, No-Fault Divorce, Same-sex marriages, Euthanasia, Capital Punishment et al). In this Jubilee Holy Year of Mercy (mindful of our own personal struggles and sins), let us pray fervently for our world (Spiritual Work of Mercy) and let us strive to welcome and love all without compromising the Revelation God has given, as proclaimed by His One Holy Catholic Church. That's the healthy balance Pope Francis wants us to understand. We're not "enforcers" of God's Word; God doesn't need us to enforce His Laws. We are only to evangelize - proposing God's Good News to all as Christ and His Apostles did. Each person has to accept freely and without any coercion, compunction or pressure. May God grant us the grace NEVER to alienate anyone still struggling with any teaching of the Church but to love all as God loves, respect their pace of spiritual growth and guarding our own faith from confusion and distortions (cf. Galatians 6:1-2). through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Homily - Thursday 1st Week of Year C

by Rev. Fr. Emmanuel

God is mercy and love in Himself. His mercy and love are ever pouring down like rain and ever shinning upon us like the sun, both on the good and bad alike (cf. Matt 5:45). Yet the ever-abiding love and mercy of God are not to be taken for granted. Our First Reading (1Sam 4:1-11) shows there're consequences for "improper presumption" of the mercy and love of God. God wants to be first in our lives; NOT as an afterthought. Let us always strive to FIRST put God in view and allow Him to lead the way as the Rock of our salvation - the Author and Finisher of our faith, through Christ our Lord. Amen.


Wed, Jan 13, 2016

Homily - Wednesday 1st Week of Year C

by Rev. Fr. Emmanuel

Is the Lord calling "You"? Are you paying attention to the promptings of the Holy Spirit in your daily life experiences? Remember, God can come/call anytime unannounced. What's God asking of you? In this Jubilee Year of Mercy, Lord, grant us the grace to hear and heed Your Call. What a privilege to become God's chosen instrument!

Homilía - Fiesta del Bautismo del Señor C

por Padre Aland Jean

Como celebramos la Fiesta del Bautismo de Cristo, que Dios nos colme con celo por las almas como Juan el Bautista experimentó, así que cada uno de nosotros puede alcanzar a otros especialmente a los no-cristianos – como una "voz" (un instrumento al servicio de Dios) para llamar a todos al arrepentimiento, recibir el perdón de los pecados y obtener el poder del Espíritu Santo en el amor (sin excepción). En una manera amorosa, que reconocemos a todos como hermanos y hermanas y dar la bienvenida a todos a la fe en Cristo como los pueblos realmente nacidos de nuevo (que comparten en la vida de Cristo: Sacerdote, Rey y Profeta. Que seamos tan amorosos y compasivos a todos como Dios es a través de Cristo nuestro Señor. Amén.

Homily - Baptism of our Lord (Feast) C

by Rev. Fr. Thomas Shea, CSC

As we mark the Feast of Christ's Baptism, like John the Baptist, may God fill us with zeal for souls that each of us may reach out to others - especially non-Christians - as a "voice" (an instrument at God's service) to call all to repentance and forgiveness….

Homily – Feast of the Baptism of the Lord C (PowerPoint Presentation)

by Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Akalue

As we mark the Feast of Christ's Baptism, like John the Baptist, may God fill us with zeal for souls that each of us may reach out to others - especially non-Christians - as a "voice" (an instrument at God's service) to call all to repentance and forgiveness of sins and empowerment of the Holy Spirit in love (without exception). May we recognize all as brothers and sisters and lovingly welcome all to faith in Christ as people truly born-again (who share in Christ's Kingly, Prophetic and Priestly ministry). May we become as loving and compassionate to all as God is to all through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Homily - Friday after Epiphany

by Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Akalue

Lord, we beg of You, grant Your people authentic understanding and growth in faith. May our relationship and commitment with/to You through Your Church (cf. Matt 16:17-18) be not merely in words but concretized through the Sacraments of Faith You instituted in love. Through the power of Your Word and Sacraments, Faith and Works, Grace and our submissive Free Will cooperation (preceded, accompanied and completed by Your Grace), empower Your people to conquer the trials and temptations of the world through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.

Homily - Thursday after Epiphany

by Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Akalue

In this Jubilee Year of Mercy, we need to pray for genuine love of God and neighbor. This LOVE is not open to redefinition because God is love (and God does not change [cf. Heb 13:8]). God has given us an outstanding example of how to love (by loving us first and sending His only Begotten Son for our salvation). This shows love is not merely a concept, an idea or merely words, but essentially a "reality" lived out in sacrificial context - always looking out for the good of another. May God grant us His Spirit in immense measure that we may live as Christ taught us and win His favor through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.


Wed, Jan 06, 2016

Homily - Wednesday after Epiphany

by Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Akalue

Our Gospel today shows how Jesus gave His Apostles the "Epiphany" (manifestation) of His Divinity: multiplied loaves, knew the Apostles were facing storms even while He wasn't physically there, walked on the sea and calmed the storm. He shows us that life without Christ is a shattered dream (cf. John 15:5). May God save His people from the subtle "wealth, breakthrough, abundance or prosperity" propositions of the Devil (cf. Matt 4:9) - through the Law of Attraction and Vibration - that we can create our ideal world without God/Christ by merely relying on our thoughts/words repeated frequently and proclaimed into reality. Remember, "For the love of money is the root of all evils" (1Tim 6:10). May we always place absolute faith and trust in God ALONE as our Provider through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Homilía - Epifanía del Señor

por el Rev. Padre Tom Shea, csc.

Así como los Reyes Magos estuvieron atentos a la revelación del Señor y reconocieron el nacimiento de Cristo a través de la dirección de una estrella, así siempre estemos atentos a los susurros del Espíritu Santo y la única luz de la revelación de Cristo a través del Ministerio de su iglesia. Amén.

Homily - Epiphany of the Lord

by Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Akalue

Just as the Magi were attentive to the Lord's revelation and recognized the birth of Christ through the guidance of a star, so may we always be attentive to the promptings of the Holy Spirit and recognize the unique light of Christ's revelation through the Ministry of His Church. Amen.

Homily - New Year Day (Mary Mother of God)

by Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Akalue

As we celebrate God's great beginnings of the fulfillment of His plan for our salvation - with this Solemnity of Mary, the Mother of God, we launch into the New Year 2016 with tremendous and joyful hope/expectation that the Lord who initiated all these inestimable favors (even choosing one of us to be His mother) will bring us abundant blessings throughout the New Year 2016 in Jesus' name. Amen.

Homily - Monday 3rd Week of Lent C

by Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Akalue

Our readings today focus on conversion and true faith confession. Naaman the leper (2Kings 5:1-15) – initially pompous, prideful and somewhat arrogant – repented, humbled himself, obeyed the simple instruction of Prophet Elisha and received his miracle. He was healed from leprosy; his flesh became like that of a little child. His faith confession that followed was outstanding: “Now I know that there is no God in all the earth, except in Israel.” This is the God we worship, the God of Israel – the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob; there is no other. He’s the true God of Americans, the true God of Brazilians, the God of the Chinese, and the God of all the earth. Let us always serve God in Christ Jesus in true humility. Lent offers us a golden opportunity to repent of our pride and arrogance. Each time we come to church for worship and fellowship, let us be filled with sentiments of true humility to work with the ministers of Christ for the progress of the church (cf. 1Cor 4:10), not for the destruction of the ministry of Christ (cf. Matt 16:18). Christ clearly shows in our Gospel passage (Luke 4:24-30) that those who arrogantly or insolently disdain or reject the prophets or priests of God endanger the blessings God might have in store for them. Remember the words of St. Paul: “Do not be deceived; God is not mocked, for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap” (Gal 6:7).

Homily - 3rd Sunday of Lent C

by Deacon Tom Flavell

Relating the story of a woman expelled from heaven and tasked with bringing what God loved the most in order to be readmitted into heaven, Deacon Tom creatively explains how nothing else mattered until she brought back “tears” of repentance. Repentance involves inward movement within us – a sincere contrite disposition – and begging God for mercy (cf. Rom 11:32). Jesus wants us to re-think our ways. Unless we repent we may be sorry at the end. What an awesome imagery the fig tree analogy presented by Jesus is to us! How often the Heavenly Father comes in search for fruit in our lives – fruit of humility, peace, harmony, mercy, forgiveness, patience, obedience and love. He examines our lives to see if we truly love Him and if our lives truly conform to the message of the Gospel. Let us take advantage of our Lenten Season to repent and to bear desirable fruits. Let us remember the forthcoming 24-Hours Vigil of prayers with the Lord on March 4/5. What a precious treasure the desire to get closer to God!

Homilía - Tercer Domingo de Cuaresma C

por Diácono Alberto Gutiérrez

El viñador es Jesús que busca frutos de su pueblo – fruto de amor, fruto de paciencia, fruto de perdón, fruto de misericordia, fruto de compasión. Somos llamados hijos de Dios. Así, es importante entender que Dios tiene un nombre que está muy revelador. El nombre es, “¡Yo Soy!” ¿Qué quiere decir? Nuestro Dios es el Dios de presente, no es Dios que se enfoca en el pasado o en la mañana. Su nombre es ‘¡Yo Soy!’, no ‘Yo fui’ o ‘Yo seré.’ “¡Yo soy el Buen Pastor!” “¡Yo soy Jesús, tu Redentor, y tu Hermano!” Entonces, necesitamos producir frutos hoy in nuestras vidas Cristianas.

Sun, Feb 28, 2016

Homily - 3rd Sunday of Lent C

by Rev. Fr. Tom Shea, CSC

In this homily, Fr. Tom reflects on our calling to live as Christians. As we celebrate our First Scrutiny, with our brothers and sisters (our Elect) who will celebrate the Sacraments of Christian Initiation at the Easter Vigil this year, we’re invited to reflect on our baptism and how it is actually a commitment to live and act as Jesus would do if He were in our world today. Many of us were baptized as babies; now – as adults – we need to reflect on our Christian commitment. We need to reflect on what conversion is about. It’s not funfair. When the Israelites were delivered from the land of Egypt they thought it would be a cakewalk into life of plenty and superabundance. On the contrary, they faced enormous challenges and complained vehemently. Similarly, some people among the Early Christians thought “Christ’s return in glory and power” was imminent – in a few weeks, months or few years. With the passage of time, they wondered “why is it taking so long?” As Christians, we must realize our calling is a long struggle; it’s the way of the cross to get to the new life. We must persevere in our faith journey, in our commitment to love all – the poor, the undocumented, the refugees, the lowly, and the marginalized of society (without prejudices). Just as Christ patiently brought the Samaritan woman [and many other Samaritans] to conversion, may our Elect and all of us be brought to authentic conversion and into fullness of life in Him. Amen.

Sun, Feb 28, 2016

Homily - 3rd Sunday of Lent C

by Deacon Bill Wanca

What is the real purpose for stepping up our prayer life and devotional exercises during the Lenten Season? It’s an invitation to repent, to be converted and return to the Lord our God. We might even become delusional thinking we have no need of repentance. Jesus expects us to be fruitful and to perform a harvest of good works pleasing in the sight of the Lord our God. We always need to shun selfishness and live a life of sharing as disciples of Christ. This implies inculcating spiritual discipline. Let us constantly “till” the ground around our hearts so that we can bear fruit in abundance.

Homily - Friday 2nd Week of Lent C

by Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Akalue

In this homily, God's Word throws more light on why certain wrong inclinations - such as engaging in wicked scheming and plotting against another - are really depraved, unbecoming and unworthy of Christians. Joseph (the dreamer) was a victim of this evil in the First Reading and Jesus was a victim of the same acts of human wickedness in the Gospel passage. Lent is a time to change our ways. God is the whistle blower calling us back to Himself through His Word. Are we willing to yield to the "whistle" of God or are we going to ignore and disregard it? God has provided us classical examples of authentic Christian living in Jesus and the Blessed Virgin Mary. Neither Jesus nor Mary ever had anything to do with plotting and scheming against anyone. They teach us what it means to live a Christian life in the Holy Spirit. Are we going to return to the Lord and build our faith on solid rock or are we going to continue on the path of destruction or perdition? Remember, "as you make your bed so you lie on it." God is not to blame for any future misfortune. His blessings abound forever. Amen.

Thu, Feb 25, 2016

Homily - Thursday 2nd Week of Lent C

by Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Akalue

Our Catholic Christian faith is not merely about rituals, going through the motions, without any intrinsic conversion into Life in the Spirit (the life of Jesus - cf. Gal 2:20). We're not merely called to be hearers of the Word; more importantly, we're called to be the doers. The Word of God invites us to shun the company of the wicked and insolent. Before Jesus celebrated the Eucharist with His disciples, He made sure Judas Iscariot (His betrayer) was excused from His company and from His Apostles' company as well. "Then after the morsel, Satan entered into him [Judas]. Jesus said to him, 'What you are going to do, do quickly' .... So, after receiving the morsel, he immediately went out; and it was night" (John 13:27, 30). Though we don't judge anyone or any group of persons uncharitably, rashly or prematurely, if all you get from any person or group of "friends" is continually hateful and wicked gossips, rumormongering, delighting in the downfall of another or conspiring for the downfall of another, envy, jealousy, malicious lies, and the likes; that is certainly not where you want to belong. If you cannot be a positive influence to change them into better Christians, then you need to part ways. We must belong to the fellowship of the Holy Spirit and shun the fellowship of the flesh. We must bear fruit in the spirit to the glory of God and not just be merely ceremonial Christians.

Homily - Wednesday 2nd Week of Lent C

by Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Akalue

In the light of the horrific clergy abuse scandals, especially the heinous crime of child abuse, the Church has suffered many consequences. Accordingly, many measures have been put in place to ensure safe environment for our children and our vulnerable population. Christ definitely abhors and repudiates such mishaps in the Church. In His words, "Temptations to sin are sure to come; but woe to him by whom they come! It would be better for him if a millstone were hung round his neck and he were cast into the sea, than that he should cause one of these little ones to sin” (Luke 17:1-2). Our Readings, today, address the flip-side of this; namely the plots, harassment, and abuses committed against priests themselves. Beloved, I was shocked by the media report recently: “A record 149 people were exonerated in the US in 2015, nearly three a week." Released after serving sentences for the crimes they didn't commit? Where does this leave us? Brethren, not every priest accused of a crime was guilty of the crime. In our First Reading, Jeremiah was plotted against and fraudulent charges were brought against him. Our Gospel passage shows Jesus Christ was also arraigned through the plots of false and lying witnesses. For those who plot to falsely entrap, accuse and pull down priests from the ministry Christ entrusted to them, Christ has these words of admonition: “I will send them prophets and apostles, some of whom they will kill and persecute,' that the blood of all the prophets, shed from the foundation of the world, may be required of this generation, from the blood of Abel to the blood of Zechariah, who perished between the altar and the sanctuary. Yes, I tell you, it shall be required of this generation” (Luke 11:49-51).

God encourages us to have faith and trust in Him. We should not have too much anxieties and worries about our life, our family, our future. Place your entire life and situation in the Hands of God. He’s mighty to deliver; He does not fail. Abraham placed his faith in God and God blessed him in ways he couldn’t have imagined. Ultimately, through the transfiguration of Jesus, Christ shows us we are destined for heavenly blessings if we persevere through the challenges of our present life – persevering in faith, hope and love. Both our earthly and heavenly aspirations can be guaranteed by God. To Him be the glory now and forever. Amen.

Homilía - El Segundo domingo de Cuaresma C

by Rev. Fr. Tom Shea, csc

En esta homilía, Padre Tomas refleja en favores especiales Abraham recibió como un hombre de fe. Tres de las grandes religiones: el judaísmo, el cristianismo y el Islam, están conectados con Abraham. Él es nuestro padre en la fe. Dios cumplió Su promesa a Abraham. Como miembros de la Iglesia, no vamos a ser divididos tanto de origen nacional; todos somos cristianos, una familia de Dios. Tenemos que trabajar juntos. Dios quiere que vivamos en paz y armonía y trabajar por el bien de todos. El tiempo de Cuaresma es importante para crecer en la vida de oración. No se trata sólo de oración "Padre nuestro" o "Ave María" o "Rosario". Es acerca de vivir una vida de oración – vida de compasión, misericordia, amor, paz, reconciliación, y de ayudar a los demás. Esto no es fácil. Por lo tanto, tenemos que orar por la gracia. Dios nos muestra a Jesús: "Este es mi Hijo amado, escuchadlo." ¿Como podemos seguir a Jesús realmente? Cuidar de todos, especialmente a los pobres, a los abandonados, a los inmigrantes, las personas sin hogar, etc. Que el amor de Dios llene nuestras vidas. Amén.

Homily - 2nd Sunday of Lent C

by Rev. Fr. Aland Jean

In this homily, Fr. Aland reminds us that Lent is a time for sacrifice through our spiritual exercises of fasting, praying, and almsgiving. Christ’s transfiguration is a dramatic invitation to everyone to yield to gradual transformation into the image of God’s only Begotten Son, our Lord Jesus. It’s all about God’s unconditional Covenant Love. Notice Abram received God’s favor for himself and his descendants not through any merits as such; rather, through God’s benevolence. Thus, we can place absolute confidence in God. This is not just concerning earthly wellbeing, but more importantly, about our future heavenly blessings. That’s Saint Paul’s point in our Second Reading: Christians must not forget they owe their salvation to the blood of Christ, not necessarily through religious practices and observances but through unmerited and undeserving divine favor. Jesus is the fulfillment of all our expectations, desires and aspirations. Hence, God the Father invites us to renew our dedication to Jesus: "This is my chosen Son; listen to him.” Lord: let your word illuminate our lives in order to give back to you with all our hearts. Reveal your promise of happiness and life to everyone through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen!

Homily - Friday 1st Week of Lent C

by Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Akalue

Our readings show – under the backdrop of the Jubilee Year of Mercy – the mercy of God must not be taken for granted. God will not waste salvation on anyone who refuses to cooperate with the call for repentance and forgiveness of sins. This does not imply we adopt “Pharisaic” attitudes or dispositions in the way we relate with our brothers and sisters. We must always allow God to be God; we need not play God and begin to judge anyone rashly. The Church is a ‘spiritual hospital’ where the sick, the wounded come to receive healings from God, the Doctor of doctors, the Physician of physicians. Always remember the words of the Psalmist today: “If you, O Lord, mark iniquities, who can stand? Hence, Christ teaches in the Gospel passage: “I tell you, unless your righteousness surpasses that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will not enter into the Kingdom of heaven.” Sin is a mystery; it’s not just what appears as major (mortal) sin that is really all that is major; even what subtly appears as minor (venial) sin might be really major in the eyes of God. Here’s a food for thought (a wise counsel) from the Psalmist: “But who can discern his errors? Clear thou me from hidden faults. Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me! Then I shall be blameless, and innocent of great transgression” (Ps 19:12-13).

Homily - Thursday 1st Week of Lent C

by Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Akalue

One value of our Lenten Season is to reawaken in us the spirit of prayer and petition. Prayer can move mountains; God is bigger than any mountain, bigger than any challenge, bigger than any obstacle – seen and unforeseen. It’s always important to turn to God, not only in the hours of need or in the times of distress, but also as a commitment in love relationship to God. Queen Esther invokes God in our First Reading as the God who NEVER forsakes His Covenant: “God of Abraham, God of Isaac, and God of Jacob, blessed are you. Help me, who am alone and have no help but you.” This is how to pray; we place all our hope, all our trust, in God ALONE! “Those who trust in the LORD are like Mount Zion, which cannot be moved, but abides for ever” (Psalm 125:1). Christ invites us in a loving way, in the Gospel passage, not to be lazy to pray: “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” When you pray always and fervently, no weapon of the enemy fashioned against you will ever prevail. Queen Esther prayed: “And now, come to help me, an orphan. Put in my mouth persuasive words in the presence of the lion and turn his heart to hatred for our enemy…. Save us from the hand of our enemies; turn our mourning into gladness and our sorrows into wholeness.” In the words of the Psalmist, I pray for you all my beloved parishioners, “The LORD answer you in the day of trouble! The name of the God of Jacob protect you!” (Psalm 20:1).

Homily - Wednesday 1st Week of Lent C

by Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Akalue

“Forty days more and Nineveh shall be destroyed.” A wise saying goes thus: “Only a tree will be forewarned: ‘I’ll cut you down when I come tomorrow’ and when you come it’s still there.” We can do better. “And remember, our Lord’s patience gives people time to be saved” (2Pet 3:15; NLT). God is slow to anger and abounding in mercy and love. He doesn’t take us unawares. Because of His infinite mercy, He warns us to repent. Please, the Lenten Season challenges us not to be Christians who merely go through the motions of Christian conversion; we need to cooperate with God’s goodness, love and mercy and allow the faith to change us. It’s not enough to attend Mass, Bible Study, Eucharistic devotions/Holy Hour. More importantly, it MUST be from an authentic interior commitment or inward relationship with God in Christ Jesus. Remember the words of Scripture: “When once the householder has risen up and shut the door, you will begin to stand outside and to knock at the door, saying, 'Lord, open to us.' He will answer you, 'I do not know where you come from.' Then you will begin to say, 'We ate and drank in your presence, and you taught in our streets.' But he will say, 'I tell you, I do not know where you come from; depart from me, all you workers of iniquity!'” (Luke 13:25-27). Hence, St. Paul declares unequivocally, “Do not be deceived; God is not mocked, for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap” (Gal 6:7). Lord, You are greater than Jonah and all the prophets. Grant Your people the true spirit of repentance they need to overcome the deceptions and manipulations of the devil through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Homily - Friday after Ash Wednesday C

by Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Akalue

Christ speaks about the originality of our Christian faith, our Christian revelation as well as Christian tradition. The Christian Faith experience - as given by Christ Himself - is unique. It's not an appendage of any other ancient religion out there. Why do we pray? Why do we fast? Why do we engage in meditation and contemplation? Why do we practice almsgiving? Why do we attend to the needs of the poor, the lonely and unloved, the marginalized, the immigrants/stranger (documented or not), those in prison, and the sick and Homebound? We do all because of Christ. Christ is our ONLY standard of reference. As St. Paul declares, "Indeed I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord" (Phil 3:8).

Homily - Thursday after Ash Wednesday C

by Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Akalue

What is faith about? Is it just about lip-service profession or proclamation: "I believe! I believe?" Is it just a declaration, "I accept Jesus as my Lord and personal Savior?" Not at all! It's a lot more. In the words of Jesus, "Not every one who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven" (Matt 7:21). Hence, we follow Jesus and rely on His mercy, compassion and love by striving to follow the path He shows to us through His Church (the pillar of the truth" - 1Tim 3:15). Let us never take God's mercy for granted. His mercy has always been there even in the Old Testament times. Those who ignored His word/will didn't get their way. Jesus says, "If a man loves me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him" (John 14:23). Or as St. John stated, "Little children, let us not love in word or speech but in deed and in truth" (1John 3:18).

Homily - Ash Wednesday 2016 Year C

by Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Akalue

We accept ashes, today, as a mark of true Christian repentance. We're called to undertake an inward journey of faith, hope and love. We recall our human pride, our worldly boasts, our disobedience and taking on those who have offended us avail nothing because we're nothing without God. We turn to God, the Author of life, begging for mercy. God is gracious and merciful, slow to anger and rich in mercy. He wants us to return to the right path. Let us respond with all our hearts. This is a providential moment of grace. May God bless our Lenten observances, help us to bear fruit of authentic Christian living, and help our brothers and sisters to follow Him in spirit and in truth.

Homily - 5th Sunday of the Year C

by Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Akalue

In this homily, Fr. Emmanuel focuses on the beauty and splendor of the Word of God. It is timeless and infinite. We're called to always hang on the Word of God. God is infinite in all perfections. When we encounter God, we should be filled with the sense of our "nakedness", our utter wretchedness, as we see in the case of Prophet Isaiah, and with Saints Paul and Peter. No human being can boast in the presence of God. Always take a chance with God; nothing is impossible for Him. Peter gave Jesus a chance. The outcome was overwhelming. Peter was overcome by his unworthiness. Christ forgave and commissioned him as a Minister of the Word for saving souls. St. Paul also focused on this Word and spoke about the heart of the Ministry. This is an invitation to focus on the essentials of the faith (Paschal Mystery). Jesus wants us to commit to the vocation to evangelize. Our Catholic Appeal, next weekend, is an opportunity to play our part in bringing Jesus and His mercy to all.

Homily - 5th Sunday of the Year C

by Deacon Bill Wanca

In this homily, Deacon Bill subtly points out what is not immediately obvious in Christ's words to St. Peter: "Put out into the deep and lower your nets for a catch." Fish largely remain at the bottom of the sea in the daytime and only come to the surface to feed at night. But Peter didn't argue as such; he gave Jesus a chance. The outcome was overwhelmingly great. This made Peter overcome by his unworthiness. Christ forgave him and commissioned him for ministry of souls. What an example for us! This is an invitation to focus on the essentials of the faith. Jesus wants us to commit to the vocation to evangelize. Our Catholic Appeal, next weekend, is an opportunity to play our part in the ministry of bringing Jesus and His mercy to all.

Homily - St. Agatha, Virgin and Martyr (Memorial)

by Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Akalue

Each one of us has his or her own salvation journey. God manifests in different ways to save His own. St. Agatha was fortified in spirit to preserve her dignity, holiness and chastity even unto death. Her abuser couldn't manipulate her to compromise. John the Baptist cooperated with God's grace and remained faithful till death. Even the persecution and imprisonment by King Herod did not silence him. Both Agatha and John the Baptist's salvation history are examples of victory, not misfortune or defeat! It's the victory of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. "Learn from me; I am meek and humble of heart and you will find rest for your souls" (Matt 11:29). God trumps over every obstacle, every "Goliath", in our lives. Never be afraid of the "Goliath" of death. "Be faithful unto death and I will give you the crown of life" (Rev. 2:10). Never allow yourself to become manipulated by anyone into sin. Never be dragged into making promises which lead you away from God. And if you mistakenly make a wrong promise, don't behave foolishly like King Herod. He was manipulated into making bogus promises, yet he decided to go with the flow in order to keep his word and because of what people/his guests might say; rather take back your word. Err on the side of good, not evil. You don't owe the devil anything; you have no portion with Satan. May God be glorified through your life and in your death. Amen.

Homily - Thursday 4th Week of Year C

by Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Akalue

Our Christian heritage is an enormous blessing just as the heritage of the Old Testament times was a blessing to the people of God of old. David (in a sort of parting words of admonition) gave prudent advice to Solomon his son to continue steadfast in the way of God. Christ entrusted to His disciples the Good News to proclaim that they and us may abide in Him. The Word of God is the Word of life. Let us see in this mandate of Christ an invitation to each of us to treasure the Word of God in our families, to pass it on dutifully to our children, to become more and more families of prayer and faith.

Homily - Wednesday 4th Week of Year C

by Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Akalue

We're called to live as people of faith. We always need to keep Christ's admonition in view: "Seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and these things shall be yours as well" (Matt 6:33). This is the indispensable template for proper ministry and proper Christian living. We should always focus more on things pertaining to God than on things pertaining to humans, trusting in the providence/love of God as the great provider who can do infinitely more than we can pray for (cf. Eph 3:20). What is the present state of your faith? What is the level of your commitment to learning and growing in your faith? Let's always strive to live in Spirit of Christ (cf. Rom 8:9); in the consciousness of the "unction" (anointing). Anointing makes the difference in the one who lives by faith.

Homily - Feast of the Presentation C

by Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Akalue

Christ is the Light of the world! He's the Light that shines in the darkness and darkness is not able to overcome it (cf. John 1:5). Our Christian faith is new birth into light, the Light of Christ. We are connected into the original Feast of Presentation. Through our baptismal consecration we have been presented in union with Christ to the Heavenly Father. We share in Christ's Light. His Light lights our way. Indeed, God has called us out of darkness into His own marvelous light (1Pet 2:9-10). Do you live as a child of the Light through striving to live in the Spirit of Christ? (cf. Rom 8:9). Or do you allow yourself to become caged by the Enemy the Devil? May all be bathe in light and conquer the flaming darts of the forces of darkness, through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Homily - Thursday Easter Octave C

by Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Akalue

The manifestation of the Risen Lord Jesus Christ goes on! Jesus confirms beyond any reasonable doubt that His resurrection is not phantom. This is truly Jesus, the same Jesus of Nazareth - the Son of the Most High God (who was incarnate of the Holy Spirit and born by the Blessed Virgin Mary), the Alpha and Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End. The Apostles could all verify; they could touch Him physically. He even ate baked fish before their eyes. All of them couldn't have been hallucinating. For anyone to ever deny the bodily resurrection is simply ridiculous and unreal. Also, just as then (through the power in the Risen Lord) the Apostles performed signs, in like manner today, Christ continues to manifest His name in all the earth through the ministry of His Church. Alleluia! Alleluia!! Alleluia!!!

Homily - Wednesday Easter Octave C

by Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Akalue

Christ continues to manifest the power of the resurrection to His people. He shows there's tremendous power in His Word, the power to heal the cripple, the lame, the blind, the sick, even to raise the dead. Also, the Word - "burning" or "aflame" within our hearts - has power to destroy ignorance and change lives. However, the Word ALONE is not sufficient; Christ demonstrated in the Gospel passage the indispensability of the Sacrament of His Body and Blood to open our eyes. Thus, we equally need the power of the Risen Lord in the Sacraments instituted by Christ (especially the Eucharist) to open the eyes of our minds to recognize Jesus properly in our lives. And so we pray for proper Christian understanding and conversion in the Words of St. Paul: "For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with might through his Spirit in the inner man, and that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have power to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fulness of God" (Eph 3:14-19).

Homilía - Domingo de Pascua C

por Padre Luis Osorio

En esta homilía, Padre Luis clarifica que lLa celebración de hoy es la continuación del Triduo Pascual. Es el centro de nuestra fe. Cristo ha resucitado, ¡Aleluya! ¡Esa es nuestra alegría pascual! ¡Qué bendito día vio a Cristo elevarse triunfante de la muerte! La piedra ya removida... la tumba vacía. Las vendas y el sudario que cubrieron su cabeza permanecían en la tumba. Sus discípulos vieron y creyeron. ¡Sí! Jesús ha resucitado. La humanidad finalmente se reconcilió con Dios. Mientras renovamos nuestras promesas del Bautismo hoy, recordemos que nosotros, seres humanos, son la corona de esta novedad. Hemos nacido de nuevo del agua y del Espíritu Santo a través del bautismo. Dice la Palabra de Dios, “Lo que es nacido de la carne, carne es, y lo que es nacido del Espíritu, espíritu es” (Juan 3:6). Que el Espíritu Santo nos guíe a la plenitud de las bendiciones de la Resurrección, por Jesucristo nuestro Señor. ¡Amén!

Homily - Easter Vigil C

by Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Akalue

What a Vigil of vigils we celebrate this night! It is awesome; this is the highest liturgical celebration of the Church. It marks the festival of light. God is Light, and in him there is no darkness, alteration or change. Perfect Light! Perfect Beauty! Perfect Splendor and Glory! He calls us to light through embracing and living in His Word, celebrating His Sacraments of Light, and inviting (evangelizing) all into the way of the light. Jesus declares, "If you continue in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free" (John 8:31-32). Finally, "the righteous will shrine like the sun in the Kingdom of their Father" (Matt 13:43; cf. Rev 21:23).

Homily - Good Friday C

by Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Akalue

I love these lines of a very popular Hymn: "And when I think, that God, His Son not sparing; Sent Him to die, I scarce can take it in; That on the Cross, my burden gladly bearing, He bled and died to take away my sin -- Then sing my soul my Savior God to thee...." What a day - Good Friday - that we celebrate today! Whom am I that God should send His only Begotten Son to die for me? (cf. Ps 8:4). Through this singular event God inaugurated the dawn of mercy. Jesus is Mercy-Incarnate. The mercy of God never ceases. We are therefore invited to enter personally into the historical Calvary experience. Even today experience (at funerals) shows that losing a loved one is very touching. We kiss the casket, embrace the person's items lovingly, kiss the person's picture passionately, etc. In like manner, imagine you were present at the foot of the Cross at Calvary that moment in history when Jesus died. How would you hug, kiss, and embrace passionately the Mercy of God on the Cross? That's exactly what Good Friday Liturgy is about! Some non-Catholic Christians might see you venerating the Cross and wonder what's going on? Some might erroneously ridicule you and conclude you're worshipping an image. Please, let that never bother you; "for the LORD sees not as man sees; man looks on the outward appearance, but the LORD looks on the heart" (1Sam 16:7; cf. John 7:24; Acts 15:8). Behold the new Tree of Life which, unlike the old one in the Garden of Eden, you can touch and eat/drink of (in the Eucharist) and not die; rather you gain life eternal (cf. John 6:47-51, 53-58). Indeed, as Jesus - the Life giving Lord declares, "And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of man be lifted up that whoever believes in him may have eternal life" (John 3:14-15). Or again, "and I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to myself" (John 12:32).

Thu, Mar 24, 2016

Homily - Holy Thursday C

by Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Akalue

Holy Thursday commences our Paschal (Easter Triduum). This marks the greatest expression of what makes us Church. Without the Eucharist - the Body and Blood of Christ (the sacrifice of the new and eternal covenant) - THERE IS NO CHURCH. This is what makes us who we are as Church. We, the Church, are the Body of Christ (cf. 1Cor 12:12-13); we are the People of God irrespective of our race, ethnic background, language background, gender, and whatever other diversities we can have. What matters most for God/Jesus and His Apostles is our faith life, not our political views or ideologies (cf. Phil 3:8; 1Cor 9:23). God comes first! So my faith life comes first as well. As Christians - through the gesture and message of Holy Thursday washing of feet, we are called to wash the feet of our brothers and sisters. That means we are called to welcome and love all for the sake of Christ and the Gospel, just as Christ (through His Incarnation) entered into our world to become part of us: embraced us, embraced our culture, spoke our human languages, ate our food and engaged in our peculiar human activities. He welcomed both Jews and Gentiles and offered them the Father's message of salvation in love. In the Eucharist, He becomes part of every race or culture: "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations" (Matt 28:19). We are called to yield and follow His example. Therefore, the Church is not about getting locked up within our respective ethnic or racial groups; it is about genuine openness to our authentic "Catholicity" or "universality" right from the beginning. That's the MIRACLE OF PENTECOST!!! God gave us the gift of many languages to profess one faith. Please, let no one ever mislead you into thinking God was/is wrong. The Bible and the teachings of Christ and His Church show God DOES NOT abhor diversity; God created diversity and He celebrates diversity. Let us always aspire to align our wills with the will of God. For in God's will is our peace, happiness and salvation. Amen.

Wed, Mar 23, 2016

Homily - Wednesday Holy Week C

by Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Akalue

A disciple is to grow and become like his teacher. We are called to become "other Christs". We need to constantly aspire to imitate to Lord Jesus in all aspects of our human life and relationships. We need to constantly ask the question: "What would the Lord Jesus do in this or that situation and under this or that circumstance?" Christ is our holiness; He is the Holy One of Israel and the Church is the new-Israel. May God grant us growth in our faith journey that we may always reflect His awesome beauty and splendor in our everyday lives through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.

Homilía - Domingo de Ramos C

por Padre Tom Shea, csc

¿Quién soy yo? Seguramente, todos nos gustaría ser a Jesús mismo. Pero, regularmente no somos. En nuestras lectura, vemos que los amigos más últimos de Jesús – personas que caminaban con El – lo traicionado. Uno lo vendió por plata, otro por miedo lo negaron, otro se corrieron para proteger su propio interés. Nosotros no somos mucho mejor que ellos; hacemos la misma cosa. Igual a los apóstoles, nosotros somos débiles. Pero Jesús les perdona hasta las personas que lo crucificaron. Jesús se entrega para nosotros para darnos un ejemplo de cómo debemos comportarnos. Cada uno y todos nosotros somos invitados a caminar en esta pasión. ¡Y Ojala podemos caminarlo como Jesús!

Homily - Palm Sunday C

by Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Akalue

Palm Sunday or Passion Sunday marks the beginning of the Holy Week - the holiest of weeks in world history. It's about God's covenant of mercy for the salvation of the world. God so loved the world that He sent His Son into the world to accomplish our salvation. Please, let us attend all the ceremonies for the Holy Week. Bring family and friends to celebrate the greatest story ever told!

Homily - Friday 5th Week of Lent C

by Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Akalue

Our Christian faith invites us to constantly reflect on our level of conversion and commitment to God and His Church. The Gospel of Christ is the paradigm. The Christian life is an invitation from the God of love to love. We're are God's family; we're to work for mutual up-building, never about tearing down anyone. What kind of Christian am I? Destructive envy, jealousy, rumor peddling, spreading wicked gossips, conspiracy and slander are anti-spirit of Christ (cf. John 10:10). Stand up for Jesus! Stand up for the Church of Christ! Stand up for your Catholic Christian faith! Never be misled into the path of the devil and his agents. Never aspire to damage the reputation of anyone in any group or ministry simply because the person is standing on the teaching of Christ and His Church. Don't become an instrument of the evil one for the sabotaging of the mission of salvation Christ entrusted to His Church. No matter your weak aspects - which Church Preaching - might address from time to time, always rely on the mercy of God as you continue to make genuine strides toward repentance. After all, nobody among us is perfect. You're not alone in your struggle. God will not abandon or forsake you; He will grant you His mercy and salvation because of your HUMILITY. But if you reject the mercy God is offering and choose to be on a destructive path against the mission of the Church, you might eventually lose divine favor and perish ultimately. In this Jubilee Year of Mercy, may God grant us the true spirit of Christ that we may not be lost. Amen.

Homily - Thursday 5th Week of Lent C

by Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Akalue

Our relationship with God is the most important part of our lives. We must always remember it is not any casual, political, civil or worldly relationship. It is essentially COVENANT relationship. The Word of God is covenant Word; the Sacraments given by Jesus help us enter into covenant relationship with God. They are not merely rituals, just as the covenant sacrifices and rituals of the Old Testament were not ordinary. We should never debate the teachings of God entrusted to the Church to help us enter into covenant consecration. In the Church, we're more than merely civil or political individuals; we're God's family. We MUST relate with God at another level all together, not merely natural level but the supernatural. God is Spirit and those who worship Him MUST worship Him in Spirit and in Truth.

Wed, Mar 16, 2016

Homily - Wednesday 5th Week of Lent C

by Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Akalue

How far are you willing to go in your fidelity to God? Our Catholic Christian faith tradition - from the beginning - calls for commitment to God with our whole lives: "Do not fear what you are about to suffer. Behold, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison, that you may be tested, and... you will have tribulation. Be faithful unto death, and I will give you the crown of life" (Rev 2:10). In doing so, however, we always need to err on the side of love and goodness. We never become violent in order to defend or protect ourselves or our faith. Always remember: "The battle is the Lord's" (1Sam 17:47). Jesus never called us to become aggressors, but we can defend ourselves by flight (cf. Mark 10:23) or by becoming victims as Christ did. In His words, "Put your sword back into its place; for all who take the sword will perish by the sword. Do you think that I cannot appeal to my Father, and he will at once send me more than twelve legions of angels? But how then should the scriptures be fulfilled, that it must be so?" (Matt 26:52-54). Therefore, no situation and no circumstance should ever make us behave different from the true spirit of authentic Christian witness Christ, the Blessed Virgin and the Apostles exemplified. Both our words and actions must conform to Christ's. Amen.

Homily - 5th Sunday of Lent C

Deacon Albert Gutiérrez

Our Gospel passage presents us a blueprint of how to deal with sin in our lives and in the lives of others. Notice, in the account of the woman caught in adultery, Jesus did not respond directly to the entrapment of the people on whether the woman should be stoned or not. Jesus told them: “Let the one who has no sin be the first to throw a stone at her.” Our job is to help people to repent, not to condemn. Condemnation, cruelty and harsh judgment are not works of God; mercy, tenderness compassion are the works of God. Surely, Jesus pointed out to the woman that her action was a sin; but showed her mercy. We should, in true humility, always see ourselves as God sees us. How did Jesus see the woman caught in adultery? Let us know none of us is intrinsically evil; we are sons and daughters of God who sometimes lose our way. May God grant us the spirit of mercy and love.

Homilía - Quinto domingo de Cuaresma C

Diácono Alberto Gutiérrez

El pasaje del evangelio nos presenta un modelo de cómo tratar con el pecado en nuestras vidas y en las vidas de los demás. En la cuenta de la mujer sorprendida en adulterio, Jesús no responde directamente a la trampa de la gente sobre si la mujer debe ser apedreada o no. Más bien, Jesús les dijo: "Que el que no tiene pecado sea el primero que tire la piedra." Nuestro trabajo es ayudar a las personas a arrepentirse, no a condenar a nadie. La condena, la crueldad y el juicio áspero no son trabajos de Dios; piedad y la compasión son las obras de Dios. Sin duda, Jesús señaló a la mujer que su acción era un pecado, pero mostró su misericordia. Siempre, en verdadera humildad, debemos ver a nosotros mismos como Dios nos ve. ¿Cómo vio Jesús a la mujer agarrada en el adulterio? Vamos a saber que ninguno de nosotros es intrínsecamente malo; somos hijos e hijas de Dios que a veces pierden nuestro camino. Que Dios nos conceda el espíritu de amor y misericordia.

Homily - 5th Sunday of Lent C (Third Scrutiny - Year A Readings)

by Rev. Fr. Tom Shea, csc

We are called to change. Lent is about change. We are called to move into the new. Christ transforms us and wants us to believe. The Samaritan woman and the man previously blind believed but the Pharisees and Scribes did not believe; they were stuck in their old ways, the ways of the Old Testament, the ways of the past. What does believe mean? To “be-lieve” is to become alive; we become alive in Jesus Christ. Aliveness is newness. We're to become alive by coming out of our old selves of malice, envy, prejudice, lack of love and become transformed into people of love, compassion and kindness. Christ wants us to live this wonderful world of love where there're no walls, no borders, no saying 'this people are in, these are out'. We're all brothers are sisters in Jesus. Jesus asked Mary and Martha, "Do you believe...? And they said, "Yes!" But it's not just 'Yes' with the lips; it means we begin to act in a new way, with new attitudes and new disposition of true Christian love.

Homily - 5th Sunday of Lent C

by Deacon Bill Wanca

The end of the world is not near at all, contrary to many erroneous speculations. The experience of the Israelites in their relationship with God shows God likes to give people time to repent. He is very patient with His creation. We, his people, need to learn from the patience, compassion and love of God. The Gospel passage shows we are not allowed to take matters in our hands and begin to judge, condemn and execute people prematurely. We should always think about our own “dirty secrets” and always give others a chance to grow over time. Let’s always take a look at ourselves first. Even Jesus who was sinless did not condemn the woman caught in adultery but sent her away, saying, “Neither do I condemn you; go, but do not sin anymore.” This command was not as easy as it appeared. It is very unlikely this was the first time the woman committed adultery. More likely, this was the first time she was caught. Have you ever tried to break a habit? Let us use our Lenten Season to make a return to the Lord in true humility.

Homily - Friday 4th Week of Lent C

by Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Akalue

The Extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy is important for the reconciliation of God's people and for calling all back to God. However, it's important to point out that the Jubilee of Mercy IS NOT and SHOULD NOT be about merely superficial presentation/offer of the love/mercy of God without any authentic call for the indispensable intrinsic repentance and conversion. Christ - during His earthly ministry - demonstrated God is more compassionate and forgiving to someone who sins out of human weakness than to someone who blatantly acts out of hatred, cruelty, malice and wickedness. Weakness simply means we are trying our utmost best to be good (to cooperate with God's grace) but fall short of perfection. That's the real tale of our Christian life journey - even amongst the most profound saints - from the time of Christ and His Apostles. On the other hand, it is unfortunate for any Christian to behave in the likes of Cain, King Nebuchadnezzar, the Two Elders who falsely accused Suzanna, those who falsely accused Prophet Jeremiah, King Herod who massacred the Holy Innocents, King Herod's Son who beheaded Apostle James, those who conspired and falsely accused Jesus, Judas Iscariot who betrayed and sold Jesus for 30 pieces of Silver, manifest rejection of the teachings of Christ and His Church against abortion, child abuse, domestic violence, armed robbery, terrorism, slandering another, and so on. We're called to aspire to be like Jesus as children of God/Light; people truly transformed by the Holy Spirit, who live lives according to the Spirit and bear the fruits of the Spirit (though imperfect but striving to do better). For those of us engrossed in the contrary path, the Jubilee of Mercy offers us a golden opportunity to repent and allow God to change us from wicked people (sons and daughters of perdition) into good people (sons and daughters of God). Do not waste the opportunity, for the Word of God says, "Do not be deceived; God is not mocked, for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption; but he who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life (Gal 6:7-8).

Homily - Thursday 4th Week of Lent C

by Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Akalue

Our Christian faith is not about differing opinions or personal opinions on what to believe and what to accept (Rom 14:1; 1Tim 1:3-7; 1Peter 1:20-21)). It is about yielding to Jesus Christ through the teachings of the one Church He founded and which has been there from the beginning (Matt 16:16-19; Luke 10:16; Acts 1:15, 20-23; Acts 2:42; Hebrews 13:7-10). We need to yield to Jesus through the teachings of His Church from the beginning (John 15:27; 1John 2:24), just as Jesus commanded. Today's readings (Exod 32:7-14 and John 5:31-47) clearly show God/Jesus does not welcome erroneous perspectives; He wants us to follow His legitimately appointed leaders of His Church, especially via Apostolic succession. It is not enough to read the Bible Christ clarified in the Gospel passage (John 5:39-40). We must yield, even while we remain imperfect and weak in fulfilling His command. We must accept all the Church teaches in true love and when we fail, we beg for mercy and forgiveness from God through the Sacrament of Reconciliation Christ gave the Church (John 20:20-23; 2Cor 5:17-20). That's the authentic template revealed by Jesus and taught by His Church. That's the Way to follow Christ as the Way, the Truth and the Life (John 14:6). There's no other way!

Homily - Wednesday 4th Week of Lent C

by Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Akalue

God's inestimable love for us needs not be ridiculed through lack of gratitude on our part. We must live our lives in constant appreciation of God's goodness, mercies and bounty. Appreciation, here, means we must strive to know God more, who God is in Himself and grow in the knowledge of the mystery of God and His love for us. We must increase in our consciousness of the power and greatness of God so that we can put absolute trust in Him, hang on His word - without doubting the teaching of His Church and the divine authority of the Church to guide us in matters of faith and morals for our salvation. God is faithful and His Church is trustworthy even today (against all oppositions and contrary worldly opinions) because God commissioned His Church ALONE to speak on His behalf, stating: "the one who hears you hears me and the one who rejects you rejects me" (Luke 10:16).

Homilía - Cuatro Domingo de Cuaresma

por Padre Tom Shea, CSC

Como cristianos, Jesús nos ensena como vivir en nuestro mundo de hoy. En realidad, Jesús utiliza la Parábola que nos escuchado (muchas veces que llamamos “El Hijo Prodigo”) para ensenarnos más sobre el Padre. Dios es nuestro Padre; Jesús es Dios. ¿Cómo actuó el Padre – como actuó Jesús/Dios – en esta parábola? ¡Esto es lo que es importante! Dios es el Padre liberando a sus pueblos; los pueblos que muchas veces están sufriendo y están siendo oprimido. Dios escucha a sus gritos y los libera. Es un Dios misericordioso. El Padre del hijo prodigo corre a su hijo cuando el hijo regresa a la casa después de pecar mucho contra su padre y la familia. Nosotros necesitamos cambiar nuestras actitudes y acciones que no son como Dios. Dios quiere que todos sus hijos e hijas vivan en armonía. En esta manera, vivamos en armonía con Dios también. En Cristo, somos nueva criatura para que podamos ayudar a los pobres, a los marginados de la sociedad, y a los demás.

Homily - 4th Sunday of Lent C (Year A Readings) 2nd Scrutiny

by Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Akalue

This is Laetare (Rejoice) Sunday! It corresponds to the Gaudete (Rejoice) Sunday during the Advent Season. We have reason to rejoice today as we witness the second scrutiny of our Elect who will receive the Sacraments of Full Christian Initiation – Baptism, Confirmation, and Holy Eucharist – during the Easter Vigil in about three weeks’ time. Just as the Gospel passage (John 9) relates about the man born blind, that it was neither his fault nor his parents’ fault; in like manner, it was not the fault of our Elect/their parents that they were born with Original Sin. However, just as Christ restored the blind man physically and led him to faith in Him (spiritual healing), Jesus will heal our Elect of all forms of blindness caused by Original Sin and bring them into full faith experience in Him. He is our light, our life and our love!

Homily - 4th Sunday of Lent C

by Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Akalue

The Parable of the Prodigal Son illustrates that Christ’s mission is the ministry of reconciliation, “In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace which he lavished upon us. For he has made known to us in all wisdom and insight the mystery of his will… to unite all things in him, things in heaven and things on earth” (Eph 1:3, 7-10). Thus, Jesus is our peace and reconciliation (cf. Eph 2:14). There’s no room for unforgiveness and mutual excommunication (cf. Matt 6:15). We’re a family; we must be one and remain one in love. As St. Paul says, “Whoever is in Christ is a new creation: the old things have passed away; behold, new things have come. And all this is from God, who has reconciled us to himself through Christ and given us the ministry of reconciliation…” (2Cor 5:17-20). Jesus gave us – the Church (through the apostles/priests) – the ministry of reconciliation, to forgive people’s sins? Absolutely! When? Where? Jesus did it after His resurrection, saying to His Apostles: “‘Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, even so I send you.’ And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and said to them, ‘Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained.’” (John 20:20-23). Hence, we go to CONFESSION in order to receive forgiveness and be healed (cf. Matt 5:23-24; 1Cor 12:12-26; Heb 5:1).

Homily - Friday 3rd Week of Lent C

by Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Akalue

Today's First Friday celebration in honor of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary is unique. It opens for us the 24 Hours Vigil of Prayers for God's mercy and blessings upon our world. It will end after the 9:00am Mass tomorrow morning. Our readings today stress the love and mercy of God for His people. God's plan is to favor His people, to make them abundant in splendor and glory. God wants us - in our own little way - to return the favor by loving God and loving neighbor from the depths of our hearts through concrete actions of love. Jesus says, "Learn from me, for I am meek and humble of heart" (Matt 11:29). May we love God above all things and encourage all to love God more than they love us. May we never require anyone to love us more than they love God; we never compete with God. God has done so much for us, even giving up His only Begotten Son, for our salvation. What a great love! Let us be filled with hearts of gratitude and humbly recognize that nothing we can do (whether in Time, Talent and Treasure) can ever come close to reciprocating this singular divine favor. To God be the glory!

Homily - Thursday 3rd Week of Lent C

by Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Akalue

The importance of cooperating with the plan of God for our salvation cannot be over emphasized. This implies regularly pondering on the goodness and love of God for us, resisting any urge to turn away from Him or from His church, and always working in collaboration with His ministers (Pope, Bishops, Priests and Deacons) for the growth/success of the ministry of His Church. We need to realize what is at stake here: it's not about clericalism; it's about working in union with Jesus and divinely appointed legitimate authority of His Church. It's about saving souls through the unchangeable and indispensable Word of God (bringing people to Christ, to faith; not about political sentiments or social/ceremonial affairs. Christ declares, "The one who hears you, hears me; the one who rejects you, rejects me" (Luke 10:16). It is in this context we must understand His words in today's Gospel passage: "The one not with me is against me and anyone who does not gather with me scatters." Let us always be among people who build up the Body of Christ, not among those who seek to destroy it. They are destined to fail, for "the gates of hell will never prevail" (Matt 16:18-19). May God grant us increase in the spirit of harmony, oneness, humility, patience, obedience and love through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Homily - Wednesday 3rd Week of Lent C

by Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Akalue

The Word of God is a blessing to us. All the commandments and laws of God are for our good. Scripture appraises the commandments of God very positively (Ps 19:7-12), as what we are privileged to have. The attitude of disdaining the Word of God, of rejecting the teachings of the Church is not right - according to Scripture. Who among us would prefer a lawless society? Certainly none! Just as we need laws to establish a just and fair social order, in like manner we need divine laws for a proper spiritual order. Which laws are better - human laws or divine laws? Your guess is as good as mine, unless you're not a person of faith. God's laws are for the good of society. And Christ insists that His laws - God's Commandments - will abide until the end. May God grant us true humility in our journey through life. Amen.

Homilía - Martes Tercera semana de Cuaresma C

por Padre Emmanuel Akalue

El Perdón es muy importante durante nuestra Cuaresma y más allá. Necesitamos humildad delante de Dios. De muchas maneras – a través de nuestros pecados, somos como los israelitas en el exilio. Somos responsables de nuestra situación de apuro. No es la culpa de Dios que estamos en el exilio de falta de la santidad de vida, de falta de bondad, de falta de obediencia y de falta de sincera adoración a Dios. Estos pecados nos pueden costar mucho si no nos arrepentimos. Una manera que podemos arrepentirnos es perdonar a los que pecaron contra nosotros. No tenemos opción que de perdonar a alguien que nos ha herido, no importa la ofensa. El perdón no significa que no puede mantener una distancia segura de los que quieren hacerte daño. No es fácil, pero Cristo nos da el poder del Espíritu Santo para prevalecer. Por favor, como declara a San Pablo, “Anden por el Espíritu, y no cumplirán el deseo de la carne” (Gálatas 5:16). No hay nada que hemos experimentado que pesa más lo que Jesús sufrió en la cruz por nuestros pecados. Sin embargo, perdonó, diciendo: "Padre, perdónalos, no saben lo que hacen."

Homily - Tuesday 3rd Week of Lent C

by Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Akalue

Forgiveness very important during our Lenten Season and beyond. We need humility before God. In many ways – through our sins – we are like the Israelites in Exile. We are responsible for our predicament situation. It’s is not God’s fault that we are in exile from holiness of life, from goodness, from kindness, from obedience and from sincere worship of God. These sins can cost us a lot if we do not repent. One way we repent is by forgiving those who sinned against us. We have no choice than to forgive anyone who has hurt us, no matter the offense. Forgiveness does not mean you cannot maintain a safe distance from those who want to harm you. But whether they repent or not, Christ leaves us no choice than to forgive. It is not easy but Christ gives us the Holy Spirit to prevail. There is nothing we have experienced that outweighs what Jesus suffered on the Cross because of our sins. Yet He forgave all of us, saying, “Father, forgive them, they do not know what they do.”

by Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Akalue

God's revelation to His people is a message of hope and salvation. There is tremendous power in the Word of God proclaimed by the Church. Believing and accepting the Word of God, as Christ declared unequivocally, means salvation. Personal opinions, political persuasions and ideological positions cannot save. Everyone needs to yield in humility and lean on God for mercy and salvation. Ministers of the Church need to evangelize in love - becoming all things to all to win them for Christ.

Jesus is the shepherd of all humanity; He knows His sheep and the sheep know him. As a shepherd, Christ does not use a stick or a watchdog. It is his voice that is heard in the privacy of our hearts. It is his loving gaze that affects everyone deep within us. He came for all because He does not want any of us get lost.

by Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Akalue

Jesus is the Good Shepherd. He makes us little "good shepherds" in different categories as pope, bishops, priests, deacons, parents, teachers, civil authorities, etc. He wants us to always follow His example of shepherding. He's a servant-leader. He knows and cares for His sheep and gives His own life for the survival and salvation of the sheep. May we yield to Him in love and gain the blessings of a fulfilled Christian life in this world and eternal glory in the next. Amen.

Homily - Friday 3rd Week of Easter C

by Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Akalue

Why do pain and suffering still exist in the world though Christ has paid the price of our sins, the actual cause for sorrow, pain and death in the world? In Christ, God offers us a sharing in Christ's redemptive suffering. Christ invites us to yield to the Cross. It's no longer punishment; it's now the instrument of glory. In crucis salus! Hence, the invitation to always celebrate the Eucharist - Christ's Sacrifice of Himself and become one with what/who we celebrate. As we celebrate, we are constantly invited to offer up our own bodies as living sacrifices (Rom 12:1). This is really about yielding to whatever challenges we might have to experience in order to remain faithful to Christ, just as God showed St. Paul what he must suffer on account of God's name.

Homily - Thursday 3rd Week of Easter C

by Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Akalue

What a chaotic situation it would be if everyone were to follow his or her own private interpretation of any passage of the Bible, rather than the authentic interpretation of the ONLY Church founded by Christ? Christ gave us shepherds for a reason and told us to listen to them (cf. Matt 16:13-18; Luke 10:16). Philip, a deacon, helped the Ethiopian Eunuch to understand what he was reading. Amidst the confusions and challenges of secularization today, we need the Church (that came down from the Apostles) to guide us in the truth. Pope Francis - in a merciful and loving way - has laid out the truth of the Word of God in his Apostolic Exhortation, Amoris Laetitia. Let us study it properly and never simply follow public or political opinions in our spiritual life. Presently, in Brevard School district, it's unfortunate how - in our quest for authentic cultural values - the debate is framed as between discrimination and non-discrimination. Surely, it's not about discrimination at all. Though based/standing on the Word of God, we disapprove of these relationships (bigamists, polygamists, LGBT), that doesn't mean we hate anyone. Absolutely not! God loves everyone of us. That doesn't mean God approves everything we do or want to do. We love all.

He's the Bread of Life, the Source and Summit of our Christian lives. He manifests His glory in the awesome growth and witness of the Church throughout the world. What a joy to be a Catholic Christian! He encourages us to persevere in the midst of challenges for the gates of hell will not prevail. The Church will continue in the power of the Resurrection. She will remain unstoppable in the good works she does in the name of Christ. Amen.

3rd Sunday of Easter C

by Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Akalue

In this homily, Father Emmanuel explains the Mass is the worship of the Lamb who was slain. It shows us the relationship between the liturgy and life, between the Mass and the mission of Christ, the mission of all of us. The Mass is the adoration of the Lamb sacrificed and Who sent us into the world to go and make all nations his disciples. St. Paul declared, "As often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the death of the Lord until he comes" (1Cor 11:26). The Second Reading (Rev 5:11-14) shows that, in the Mass, we are united in the "communion of saints" with the angels and saints in heaven and with the faithful on earth to worship the Lamb. This is our main concern, our greatest preoccupation. At Mass only God sets the agenda. Let us not allow other things to distract us from the call of God to bring souls to God and His Church.

En esta homilía, Padre Emmanuel explica que la Misa es la adoración del Cordero Inmolado. Nos enseña la relación entre la Liturgia y la Vida, entre la Misa y la misión de Cristo, la misión de todos nosotros. La Misa es la adoración del Cordero Inmolado y que nos envió al mundo para ir y hacer todas las naciones, sus discípulos. “Porque todas las veces que coman este pan y beban esta copa, proclaman la muerte del Señor hasta que El venga” (1Cor 11:26). La Segunda Lectura (Rev 5:11-14) muestra que, en la Misa, estamos unidos en la “Comunión de los Santos” con los ángeles y los santos en el cielo y con los fieles en la tierra para adorar al Cordero. Esta es nuestra preocupación principal. En la Misa solamente Dios establece la agenda. No permitimos que otras búsquedas seculares nos distraigan de la llamada de Dios.

by Deacon Tom Flavell

In this homily, Deacon Tom speaks about obedience and love. He explains how the Apostles obeyed Jesus, not out of fear, but out of love. He clarified how Peter’s weaknesses were so glaring. Peter had almost developed over confidence that he could die for Jesus. Later he failed. Like Peter, we may have overestimated ourselves regarding our commitment. However, when temptations come we fall short of what is expected of us. Just as Christ did not reject Peter for his failings but kept him as His chosen leader for the flock, Christ/Heavenly Father does not reject us for our failings. He gives us the room to grow. Jesus/God the Father wants us to love Him with our heart, soul and mind.

by Rev. Fr. Tom Shea

In this homily, Fr. Tom explains the significance of love. We imitate Jesus above all for Who He Is and for what He does. He points out that even the Apostles who knew Jesus very well prior to His Passion, Death and Resurrection could not recognize Him initially after His Resurrection when He manifested at the shore of the sea. Only John – the one Jesus loved – recognized Him. He explains that when we love we can recognize Jesus better. We love everyone as God loves them since none of us is perfect as God is, yet God loves all. We should be close to the marginalized, the poor, the immigrant, the outcasts of the society, just as Jesus did.

What a blessed hope of eternity we have! We need to do everything we can to cooperate with the grace of God in order to attain salvation. Our greatest preoccupation should be about ultimately beholding the face of God. He alone can fulfill our deepest desire and aspiration. Let not passing joys becloud our commitment and focus. The Christian faith is the ministry of salvation in love and goodness. It is not and will never be about being judgmental, negative or opinionated. It is really about Christ and His Gospel; the Way, the Truth and the Life. Christ has provided His Church to us as "a sign and an instrument of salvation"; the teachings of the Church are not merely instructions or rules to control people; it is God reaching out in love through the instrumentality of the ministers of the Church. Let no one resist the Word of God! Let no one become an obstacle or hindrance to the mission of the Church, else one may find oneself contending against God. May God save His people. Amen.

by Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Akalue

The resurrection of Jesus has implication for our ministry and witnessing. We witness - like the Apostles - through the power of the resurrection. We must always be bold and courageous in the midst of our secularly oriented modern-day permissive culture. The resurrection of Jesus and anointing with the Spirit we have received in order to mobilize us toward proper evangelization must not be rationed. Our faith must be holistically presented "in all its rigor and vigor" (Catechesi Tradendae, 30). All, especially the young, need to know the totality of the faith; but we present it gradually with a clear plan to teach everything Christ commanded over time. Let us never truncate the mystery of the Christ and His Church out of fear or favor. May God be glorified in our witness. Amen.

Homily – Wednesday 2nd Week Easter C

by Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Akalue

Easter invites us to live in the light of Christ. We're to always remain conscious of who we are as children of the light and to reject daily the temptation to stray from the path of the light. Christ/His Gospel is the Light; there is no other. We must resist - just like Christ and His Apostles did - the pressures constantly imposed on us by civil authorities and all those who reject many aspects of the ministry of the Church (the ministry of light). A recent Yahoo News opinion poll shows more than ever Christians feel increasingly persecuted here in America. Our Religious Liberties are being destroyed. Let us always persevere and have consolation in these words of Scripture, "Do not fear what you are about to suffer. Behold, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison, that you may be tested, and for ten days you will have tribulation. Be faithful unto death, and I will give you the crown of life" (Rev 2:10).

La palabra de Dios nos habla de problemas de injusticia, mentiras, drogas, guerras, y todos los problemas periódicos en el mundo; esos son las tinieblas. Jesús es la Luz; Él va a vencer las tinieblas. Ésta es nuestra fe. Estamos aquí para ganar la victoria. Y ganamos la victoria porque somos pequeñas luces en nuestro mundo de hoy. Somos invitados por Jesús a hacer cosas buenos y no haciendo cosas de las tinieblas. Hay muchas tentaciones de cooperar de los asuntos de las tinieblas en la familia, en el trabajo, en otros negocios. Jesús ha resucitado para decirnos a rechazar obras de las tinieblas. No es fácil. Jesús nos ayuda con su gracia a vivir una vida verdadera cristiana; viva en nosotros. La misericordia de Dios es para nosotros vivamos para otros – a los que son víctimas de drogas, de las guerras, y aquellos que son inmigrantes documentados o no, los pobres y los necesitados. ¡Jesús está vivo! ¿Dónde? ¡En cada uno de nosotros!

Homily – Easter Octave C (Divine Mercy Sunday)

by Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Akalue

We celebrate this Mercy Sunday within the context of the Extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy. From the very nature of God as boundless and infinite, Divine Mercy is boundless. There’s no limit to the mercy of God. Our Catholic Christian faith revelation – through the belief in the power of the Word of God and the power of the Sacraments (especially Baptism, Holy Eucharist, and Reconciliation) and even the Sacramentals – is a testament of how far God is willing to go in order to show mercy. The teaching of the Church from the beginning concerning hope of forgiveness of sins even after death (cf. Matt 12:32) clearly signifying of the reality of the “intermediate” state called Purgatory [See Latin Bible (cf. Hebrews 1:3)] is a testament of how far God is willing to go to show mercy. Purgatory (purification or forgiveness after death) is about the “extended mercy of God.” God to whom nothing is impossible forgives sins here and hereafter, “in this age and in the age to come” (Matt 12:32). God’s mercy is always flowing, pouring like the rain. We need to pray that God helps all peoples to embrace and receive His mercy, and that any obstacle – “any unwarranted umbrella” – blocking away the mercy of God from permeating our lives may be removed.

Homily – Easter Octave C (Divine Mercy Sunday)

by Deacon Bill Wanca

Sometimes we may doubt the magnitude of the mercy of God through unbelief. Thomas doubted and demanded proof of the resurrection. Faith does not always come easily; many times it can be a struggle against despair and could be a real challenge. The faith of the Apostles was not an overnight experience; it took quite some time to attain maturity. Our faith grows gradually too but needs to be sincere. The problem today is not so much lack of theology but the “unchristian” lifestyles amongst many Christians today. Many times we reduce our faith experience and practice to only Sunday worship and not having it connected to our lives during the rest of the week. The problem could be that somehow our lives manifest an admixture of faith and unbelief. So we pray a simple prayer: “My Lord and my God I believe; please help my unbelief.”

Homily - Friday Easter Octave C

by Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Akalue

We celebrate in honor of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. The Heart of Jesus epitomizes the depths of God's love for us. As it were, God's love is not superficial. It is love from the "heart." We're enjoined to become like God, to reciprocate His love, by loving sincerely from the heart. It involves the obedience of faith. We must always aspire to follow all that God has commanded through accepting the teachings of Christ and His Church and by striving to do our utmost best to live them out, in spite of our regular human weaknesses. "If you love me", Christ says, "keep my word [commandments]" (John 14:15, 21, 23-24). Christ will continue to sustain us as long as we honestly love Him and are sincere in the struggle against sin. We teach and practice our faith in His name and work for "one fold and one shepherd" (John 10:16), as He commanded. He is the ONLY name in all the earth by which we can be saved! (Acts 4:12).
