Homilies

Lifeissues is mainly concerned with publishing thoughtful articles directly related to issues raised in Evangelium Vitae. However, from the very beginning, we have also published a few related homilies, notably by Fr. Al Cariño, O.M.I., Fr. Tony Pueyo, and others.

Please use the pulldowns below to select a homily by Liturgical Calendar date.

New! The man who gave everything to God
Ordinary Sunday C-18

Al Carino
Our possessions are God's. Thus they are neither for our needs alone nor are they to be used with absolute freedom. Rather, their use has a social dimension: we are to share them with those in need. So in this regard, we are just God's stewards of His possessions.

New! Being and Having
18th Sunday in Ordinary Time (C)

Antonio P. Pueyo
There is more to life than the accumulation of possessions. What we have accumulated, we have to leave behind. No matter how wide one's lands are, at the end he would lie down on a narrow piece of soil. We cannot bring along even a single nail from our coffin. If ever we have accumulated knowledge it is best left behind as wisdom for those whom we have counseled and mentored.

New! The only thing that lasts is our relationship with God

Tom Bartolomeo
Glory in death is not vain, everything else is. At death we leave everything behind, our homes, spouses, children, friends and enemies, our money and debt, our achievements and failures, our plans and disappointments. Jesus rose from the dead with his injuries glorified.
