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 cross - our task and glory
Ordinary Sunday A-22

Al Carino
If our faith has brought us to the living God, if it has brought us to the person of Jesus, if it has made us see Jesus in our neighbor, if it has brought light to our personal life, then it is madness to give up what is demanded by our faith. Rather, it urges us to keep on taking up our cross daily to the end, as Jeremiah did.

New! Pains and Gains

Antonio P. Pueyo
I am a teacher. Sometimes, students with failing grades come to me and ask for some consideration. As they present their case, varied reasons are given. Mostly, their parents will be angry, or will not allow them to go to school any longer. Eventually the question is asked, "What will I do in order to pass this subject?" My standard answer is "Study."

New! Fire from Within
22nd Sunday in Ordinary Time (A)

Antonio P. Pueyo
As any good coach knows, an athlete must have talent and natural abilities. But that is not enough. There must be discipline and fire from within. It is the inner dynamism that makes a winner.

New! Humility
22nd Sunday in Ordinary Time, Cycle A

Douglas P. McManaman
God is like water; He seeks the lowest place.

New! Thirst for God

Frank Pavone
The Church's efforts to proclaim, celebrate and serve the Gospel of Life are marked by the themes in today's readings.

New! You Win Some, You Lose All

Proclaim Sermons
The cross of Jesus has a hard but necessary lesson to teach us: that, although life inevitably ends in death, it is in death that eternal life has its beginning.
