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! Separation of Church and State
Ordinary Sunday A-29

Al Carino
Now, since politics and economics are of primary importance to God, they should also be of primary importance to the people. But since the concerns of the people are also the concerns of the Church -- specially the concerns of the poorest among them for whom the Church has a preferential love -- then she must intervene in politics and economics as they directly affect the people.

New! Divided Loyalties
29th Sunday in Ordinary Time (A)

Antonio P. Pueyo
When a culture of corruption is affecting peopleís lives, whose job is it to speak up and give moral guidance?

New! Missionary Blessings
29th Sunday in Ordinary Time (A)

Antonio P. Pueyo
When we consider recent church documents on missionary activity, we see there the interplay between proclamation and dialogue. The missionary, by his presence and word proclaims the good news about life in Jesus. This news may be perceived as strange and threatening. On the other hand, the missionary attempts to integrate this thread of good news into the fabric of life of the community, in a way that respects their culture.
