Sin Against the Holy Spirit

Feb 6, 2019 07:25

With references to Pope John Paul II's encyclical, "The Lord and Giver of Life," Father Dave explains that Jesus' statement is mainly about our free will. Blaspheming the Holy Spirit is a total rejection of both God and the presence of the Holy Spirit in our lives in a formal and permanent way. It is unforgivable because we reject the offer of God's mercy. Preached at Saint Paul the Apostle Church, New York City, on 1-28-19

Epiphany IPO

Jan 14, 2019 09:59

Jul 3, 2018 08:17

Description:

Memorial of Saint Aloysius Gonzaga. Father Dave discusses the Lord's Prayer. In today's Gospel, Jesus references the pagans and their belief system.

Checking Your Smartphone for Jesus

May 4, 2018 14:45

Description:

Fifth Sunday of Easter. Father Dave mentions a study which states that the average American checks their phone 70-80 times per day, nearly every 10 minutes. He relates this to the metaphor of the vine and branch that Jesus uses in the Gospel. The vine is genuine nourishment, but there are certain brances which bear no fruit. We can survive without our phones, and plug into the real source of power, Jesus. Preached at Saint Paul the Apostle Church, New York City, on 4-29-18

Look Back to Make Present

Apr 26, 2018 05:53

Description:

Monday of the Fourth Week of Easter. Reflecting on the reading from the Acts of the Apostles, Father Dave points out the first real controversy among the leaders of the Church. Many believed that in order to be a believer in Christ, you had to be a Jew. Peter had a dream in which he was asked to accompany everyone, including the gentiles. This dream makes Peter ask himself, "Who am I to hinder God?" Father Dave encourages us to ask ourselves this same question. Preached at Saint Paul the Apostle Church, New York City, on 4-23-18

How Did We Miss That?

Apr 16, 2018 06:17

Description:

Thursday in the Octave of Easter. Father Dave points out how we sometimes miss important details in our lives. In the Gospel reading from Luke, Jesus appears to the disciples after the resurrection, and they think he is a ghost. This leaves us asking, "how did they miss that?" In our own lives, Jesus continues to reveal himself over and over again, and we must open our eyes and hearts, so as not to miss it.

Description:

Monday of Holy Week. Father Dave focuses on the Gospel reading in which Judas complains about the woman using expensive oil to anoint Jesus. While many argue that Judas was saying this out of greed, Father Dave relates this story to our complaints about churches looking expensive. The beauty of the church can draw us in, and it is good to want a beautiful space to worship God. Our faith is what should draw us to serve the poor. Preached at Saint Paul the Apostle Church, New York City, on 3-26-18

Let's Not Miss the Simple Things

Apr 2, 2018 07:10

Description:

Monday of the Third Week of Lent. Father Dave discusses the story of Namaan and his healing. Namaan was asked to do something very simple in order to be healed from leprosy, and did not believe it would work because it was such a small task. Father Dave points out that often we look for something big in our spiritual lives, but it is possible that God is asking something simple of us, and we might miss out on it if we are focused on bigger plans. Preached at St. Benedict Catholic Church, New Jersey, on 3-05-18

The Power of the Chair

Feb 28, 2018 03:47

Description:

Feast of the Chair of St. Peter, Apostle.

Day of Prayer for the Legal Protection of Unborn Children. Father Dave explains the meaning behind Jesus' words about blaspheming the Holy Spirit as the "unforgivable sin." He discusses St. John Paull II's encyclical, "Dominum et Vivificantem," on the Holy Spirit, which explains that because God gave us free will, if we choose to permanently turn our backs on God, God will not force us to receive the Holy Spirit. It is "unforgivable" because God will not override that person's choice. Preached at St. Paul the Apostle Church, New York City on 1-22-18

Twelfth Sunday in Ordinary Time. It seems like in today's readings that during the storm, the others are asking Jesus "Come on, Jesus! Why aren't you helping us? Don't you care about us?"
