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! Love as basis of justice and peace
Trinity Sunday (C)

Al Carino
We can learn from what another theologian has said: Justice is the minimum of love while love is the maximum of justice. Justice makes sure that what is due to another is given. But love goes beyond justice. In fact, it is the maximum of justice.

New! If pigs could fly and fish could walk

Tom Bartolomeo
If pigs could fly and fish could walk. Our lives are more surreal than we realize. Why do we dream unless there is another reality? Do we sleep so we can dream? We know that without sleep - we would die in 72 hours. In our unconscious dream-state we sort out all kinds of things, real and imagined. We could not, however, imagine, awake or dreaming, the Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
