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! Finding her Mr. Right
Lent A-3

Al Carino
During Lent, it will do us good to give time in reading the Scriptures and reflecting on them. Realizing how far we still are from the Lord, we may then be inspired to desire the gift of life which Jesus is only too willing to give.

New! Thirsty
3rd Sunday of Lent (A)

Antonio P. Pueyo
The best kind of water is not spring water or bottled water, mineral water or distilled water. The best water is what you drink when you are really thirsty. Every athlete, laborer, or traveler experiences this.

New! Go Ahead, Make My Day
3rd Sunday of Lent

Douglas P. McManaman
Our God is a God of mercy and inexhaustible goodness, but He is a God of Justice, and so He looks for one reason to pour out his blessings upon us. All we have to do is give him that reason, a minimal requirement of justice, and the floodgates of divine grace will open, but so many people refuse to give Him that one reason.

New! The way of the cross: passage to conversion

Tom Bartolomeo
When good things happen unexpectedly accept them without question. All the woman at the well needed was someone to acknowledge the hypocrisy of her life inviting her to change her ways and accept "a spring of water welling up to eternal life". Jesus deals with issues we avoid - never shying away from the truth no matter how shameful while respecting a person's basic human dignity. All God requires is our honesty.
