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.

New! Salvation through simple acts
Feast of Christ the King (A)

Al Carino
We are thus judged not for the positions we hold in the community, our social status, academic records, wealth, heroic deeds, etc. Neither will we be judged by the number of prayers we say daily unless they lead us to greater love of God which in turn leads us to the service of the poor -- "the least brothers of mine." Rather, we will be judged for very simple acts.....

New! Jugement Day
Christ the King Sunday (A)

Antonio P. Pueyo
A wise man said, "The rains feed the river, the river feeds the trees along its banks, the trees produce fruits and feed people. Whom do people feed?"

New! Listen to the Shepherd's Voice
Solemnity of Christ the King (A)

Jeremiah R. Grosse
One of the greatest signs of God's presence is the Holy Eucharist. Our Lord gave us his own body and blood as true food and true drink to help us on the journey to his Kingdom. At the Eucharistic table, we come to share in the divinity of Christ, who humbled Himself to share in our humanity. On this Solemnity of Christ the King, we give thanks and praise to God who offered his life on the altar of the cross and redeemed the human race by this one perfect sacrifice of peace.
