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 Church's time - our time
Ascension (C)

Al Carino
It is said that charity begins at home. In carrying out Jesus' mission, most of us do not have to go far. We can work right there where God has placed us in the home and school, our workplaces, among our peers, in our community, our parish, etc. And we are not to fear. For Jesus is in us through His Spirit.

New! Clothed with Power
Ascension Day

Antonio P. Pueyo
The power that comes from the Lord has many manifestations. It could even manifest itself in some paranormal way, but that is not the important thing. It is a gift that is given to give glory to God and to benefit the community

New! It takes more than a hope and a prayer

Tom Bartolomeo
Generally speaking many people, when asked, would say that at their death they would hope and pray to go to heaven and many, perhaps some here, may not really know what that entails. A reward for living a good life however one see it? If that is true then there are these concerns we should have about Jesus' instructions. "No one has ever ascended into heaven except the one who descended from heaven" to which Jesus added, "the Son of Man, who is in heaven."(John 3, 13). I am tempted to stop here and let you figure that out.
