Roc Homily – Feast of Christ the King… (B) 2015

Though we live in a democratic society, I would suggest that the worlds of empire and royalty are actually near and dear to our hearts… I don’t know about you, but for all practical purposes, I want to rule the world… my own tiny little world, oh and yours, too. Can I get an Amen!!!

A02-Studying “In the Midst of Our Storms” – Chapter One.one

Welcome to a series of video presentations about my book, “In the Midst of Our Storms: Opening Ourselves to Christ in the Liturgy.”  Chapter One is by far the most dense of all the chapters in my book.

Roc Homily – 32nd Sunday Ordinary Time 2015

“…you have come to the aid of your people with your divinity and even fashioned a remedy out of our mortality that the cause of our downfall might become the means of our salvation through Christ the Lord.”  –  A strong undercurrent that runs through the Gospel of Mark has to do with “the Two Ways” – the way […]

Roc Homily – All Saints Day 2015

“Blessed are the Poor in Spirit”  –  It seems to me that this year our feast day is about Saint-Making. How? By receiving Jesus instruction (Sermon on the Mount) as disciples – those willing to learn today – who have been part of the crowd of the lame, blind, and deaf. Today’s theme, as it were comes […]
