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.
The task of caring for our brethren and the Church was not handed to Peter alone. Each one of us has a mission to fulfill among them and in the Church. And this we alone can do considering our unique capabilities and talents as well as our exposure to circumstances and experiences exclusively our own.
Peter did not leave us beautiful poetry. He left us the testimony of a man in love with the Lord. He offered his life.
Most do not see death the same way. Many live lives in fear of one thing or another which explains why so few face this evil world with courage and hope either afraid of reprisal or afraid of offending anyone - the 'mind my own business' Catholic who 'goes along to get along' who is not Apostolic to his relatives, neighbors and associates the way the Apostles were. They can always 'go fishing', I suppose.
Synopsis: When God sees us, He sees a likeness of His Son, and he delights in us as a result of that. There's a sense in which God the Father looks at us through rose colored glasses.
