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.

New! Transformed by 'listening to Him'
Lent A-2

Al Carino
The Transfiguration-event shows us the value of 'withdrawing' now and then from our daily routine and 'going up to the mountain' to 'listen to Him,' that is, to pray.

New! A Moment to Remember
2nd Sunday of Lent (A)

Antonio P. Pueyo
Recall your peak moments. Were there times you felt very close to God?

New! The way of the cross: repentance

Tom Bartolomeo
Jesus expects from us the same faith and courage which Abram and his son Isaac demonstrated - a father ready to offer his obedient son's life to God. It is not so unusual. Many men have resolved to sacrifice themselves for the lives of others, soldiers and others. Jesus, the Son of God, was ready and told his followers multiple times that "the Son of Man would be handed over to the chief priests and scribes . . . to be mocked . . . flogged . . . crucified and raised on the third day". They were perplexed. They could not comprehend how Jesus who the Apostle Peter declared was the "Son of God" would agree with his Father's wishes and chose to die.
