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! Call for conversion
Advent A-2

Al Carino
"Make straight his paths." Just like the flow of a river, we are often tempted to take the line of least resistance. Instead of living up to what is right the straight path we tend to sacrifice our convictions to please others, to be accepted by them, rather than to be pleasing in the Lord's sight.

New! Joyful Harmony
2nd Sunday of Advent (A)

Antonio P. Pueyo
Ask not what others can do for you, ask rather what you can do for others.

New! The Pregnant Season, Part One

Tom Bartolomeo
Jesus taught us in parables from his own experiences. How else did he learn the parables? Perhaps the easiest parable to understand but the most difficult to practice is the parable of little children, "Unless you become as little children you can not enter the kingdom of heaven." (Matthew 18:13). It has been famously said that "the child is father to the man", and I would add, that the child is mother to the woman. These are the important things parents and children should learn and share together.
