Repent for the Kingdom of God is at hand!
In this homily for the second Sunday of Advent we look at the person and message of John the Baptist. His message of repentance is one that is actually full of hope and spurs us onward along our journey of Christian conversion.

God is a God of the living...all are alive to God! 32nd Sunday Yr C
Faith in the resurrection should fill us with hope and expand our capacity for God. In this Sunday's message we reflect on the invitation God gives us to go deeper and broaden our horizons. If our vision of God and the world is too fixed, too rigid then we might be in for a shock!

"The Son of Man has come to seek out what was lost" Homily 31st Sunday Year C
God does not create rubbish! Humans are basically good, sin disfigures this goodness but it doesnt destroy it. In today's message we reflect on how God wants to enter our mess, restore our goodness and begin a friendship with us.

We are called to be Saints! Homily for All Saints
Todays feast invites us to reflect on the Communion of Saints. The Saints in heaven are a constant source of inspiration and encouragement to us. They intercede for us and strengthen us as we too, strive to be the saints that God calls to be.

Knowing our need of God: Homily 30th Sunday Year C
All of us are sinners in need of the mercy of God. As human beings, we are dependent beings: we are dependent on each other and we are dependent on God. When we lose this sense of dependency we become prideful and we suffer.

Pray continually! The nature of prayer. 29th Sunday Yr C
Have you ever prayed for something and felt that your prayer was not answered? Is your prayer all about just asking for stuff or does it go deeper? In today's homily we look at the nature of pray and how as Christians we can pray continually without becoming discouraged.

Miracles still happen, God heals today!
Homily for 28th Sunday, Year C. Miracles occurred throughout Jesus public ministry, yet they don't seem as common today...or perhaps they are. Miracles are instances of God reigning in our lives and these can be daily occurrences!

Fan into a flame the gift of faith! Homily for 27th Sunday Year C
Faith is a supernatural gift from God, but like all gifts it has to be unwrapped and used. Otherwise, it's pretty useless . In today's homily we look at how we can increase our faith, grow our faith and fan into a flame this great gift that God has given us!

Life does not revolve around us! Homily for 26th Sunday Yr C
What we do, and how we love affects others. The gospel urges us to recognise that we are only on this earth for a short time and whilst here we are to use our time to serve the poor and marginalised. Life is more, so much more, than runningthe rat-race and serving our own self interests. Homily for the 26th Sunday of the Year.

Who is your Lord? God, Money, or something else? 25th Sun, Yr C
Everybody serves something or someone, even if it's themselves. What we serve and who we serve informs our whole way of life. It's not just ego or money that's the problem. One of the more subtle things that many people become consumed by is anxiety. Anxiety can become a 'Lord and Master' that directs and informs our whole lives. Jesus came to free us from everything that enslaves us, even anxiety! Listen here to this homily for 25th Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year C. Preached by Fr Luke, in Brandon, Suffolk, UK.

Christ came to call sinners. Mercy is the supreme face of God: Homily for 24th Sunday Yr C
How doe we see God? What is our abiding image of God? Is he a judge or a lover? Is he waiting to strike us down when we mess up or raise us up when we fall? Perhaps we see him as some kind of magic butler that we go to only when we need something? Who is God for us? It's an important question because how we see God shapes our whole lives. What is more the Bible, read in the wrong way an actually give us a damage image of God!

Humility is the way to Holiness. Homily for 22nd Sunday Year C
No human person is self-made, no human person has it all sorted and if we think we do, then we are deceiving ourselves! Humility is the way to God. Humility means we know our need for God and his divine mercy. Holiness begins when we admit our faults and frailties and confess our sins. Humility requires real honesty about our need for Jesus as our divine Saviour.

Enter by the Narrow Door. Homily for 21st Sunday, Year C.
Enter by the narrow door: being a Christian means making some tough decisions and being willing to stand up for truth. Sometimes gospel truth does not equate with the majority opinion, nevertheless, Jesus urges to stay on the right path - even if it is an unpopular path.

20th Sunday Year C - I have not come to bring peace, but division!
No Cross no Crown! Being a Christian is not easy. Nowhere in the Gospel does Jesus say "follow me and have an easy life". In fact, he says the opposite. As followers of Jesus we need to wake and grow up to the reality that suffering is part of life. Being a follower of Christ means that we will face difficulties and sufferings, just like our Master. The difference is, however, is that He is with us in the trials of life, He is not absent!

The Assumption Of Mary
Homily for Assumption Day, recorded live: Mary is the Ark of the New Covenant. Her body was the dwelling place for life incarnate, as such her body never saw the corruption of death . Where she has gone, body and Soul, we hope to follow.

Homily for 19th Sunday Year C
We live in a narcissistic culture - people are obsessed with themselves. But true peace and fulfillment requires love of God, love of neighbour, and then love of ourselves (In that order!) Only then will we be truly ready to meet the Lord when he returns.
