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! Love as foundation of community
Trinity Sunday (A)

Al Carino
The doctrine of the Trinity teaches that there are Three Persons in one God. Three Persons in one God? Impossible! Why? Because our experience tells us that every person is one and a separate being. If there are three Persons in the Trinity then there must be three Gods! So how can God be one and three at the same time?

New! Trinitarian Life as Communion and Mission

Antonio P. Pueyo
Living this Trinitarian communion and witnessing to this life of love is not always easy. As one missionary observed, "There are two difficult situations in a mission. First, when one has to live alone in his mission area, and second, when he has to live with others."

New! Getting to Know God
Solemnity of the Most Blessed Trinity

Antonio P. Pueyo
To get into the mystery of the Trinity is not just a matter of arriving at an intellectual clarity. Ultimately, it is to make an affirmation that God is so great that He defies intellectual understanding about being Three-in-One.

New! The Joy of Self-Expansion
Solemnity of the Holy Trinity

Douglas P. McManaman
The inner life of the Trinity is an eternal life of knowledge and love. Heaven is nothing but an eternal life within the very heart of the life of the Trinity, within the heart of this knowledge of God and this mutual love between the Father and the Son.

New! Whoever believes in me
Solemnity of the Holy Trinity

Douglas P. McManaman
To believe in the name of Christ is to believe in the Person of Christ. To believe in the Person of Christ is to freely choose to live in Him. Who is He? He is the divine life, the life of grace. He is the Truth. To believe in him is to live in the Truth that Christ is. It is to live in his grace.
