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 Power of Words
Ordinary Sunday A-15

Al Carino
Definitely, words have power and they can affect our lives. A word of appreciation can make our day bright and beautiful. An insulting word can ruin our day and even cause us sleepless nights. In short, words can make us or even cripple us for life. If human words are such, all the more is God's word.

New! Seeds of Hope
15th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Antonio P. Pueyo
I place my hopes in SSS. I do not refer to the Social Security System, although this too works on hope. The Triple S that I hope in consists of the seed, the sower, and the soil. There will always be people who will carry the torch and spread its light. The hero , the martyr, the peacemaker, the truth-teller will never be alone. They may feel they are fighting a lonely battle, but eventually from these little efforts, a critical mass forms.
