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! The Motherhood of Divine Love
8th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Douglas P. McManaman
Most people don’t believe that God’s gaze rests on them all the time, like the mind of a mother always on her child. But the only way to know that love is to trust. Faith is the only way to know it.

New! Becoming Jesus living the commandments of God

Tom Bartolomeo
The seat of either virtue or vice resides not in the visible body but in the secret chambers of a person's heart, in his mind and free will. Invisible festering anger, Jesus taught, leads to murder or it brings 'death by a thousand cuts' especially to the one who harbors anger. Adultery, Jesus taught, infects first the heart, one of the deadliest of sins affecting both husband and wife and their relationship with their children. Today that would include contraception and abortion. Destroy God's gift of life in our bodies and destroy his gift of love in a heart growing cold.
