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! Eucharist, Bread of eternal life
The body of Christ (A)

Al Carino
When a person or an organization comes into existence, we say that it is born. And just as a baby needs nourishment, so does an organization. This is also true of the Christian community. What nourishes it is the Eucharist, the Sacrament of Love and Unity.

New! The Body of Christ

Antonio P. Pueyo
If the Christian position is somewhere between gnosticism and hedonism, how then should we regard the body? St. Paul writes that the body is the temple of the Holy Spirit (1Cor 6:19). Therefore, he advises "Glorify God in your body" (v.20). The Christian does not despise the body nor worship the body. Just like anything else in the world that God created good, we regard the body as a gift to be used for the glory of God.
