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! Misuse God's gifts at your own risk!
Ordinary Sunday A-33

Al Carino
If there is one lesson that the Parable of the Talents teaches us, it is this: We have to use our talents to make the world a better place to live in. How? By carrying out in our lives and proclaiming with our lips the values of God's Kingdom.

New! Accounting Time

Antonio P. Pueyo
The affairs of the Kingdom are more important than one's comfort. A faithful disciple and steward gets involved in God's affairs. This entails inconveniences and risk-taking.

New! Nature and Nurture
33rd Sunday in Ordinary Time

Antonio P. Pueyo
What we are is a product of both nature and nurture. We have been born with some physical, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual endowments. We were nurtured and were influenced by certain cultural environments. Yet, ultimately we are responsible for ourselves and we are accountable for what we become. We do not blame our genes, nor our parents, our teachers, or environment.

New! Love and Fear
Sunday of the 33rd Week of Ordinary Time (Year A)

Jeremiah R. Grosse
The Sacrament of Reconciliation helps us to live in the peace of God by restoring the relationship between each other and the Church which had been destroyed by our sinful and selfish acts. We need not live in fear that we must live our lives trapped in our sinfulness since we are able to confess to sins and receive absolution and the peace which allows to begin again.
