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! Mission Possible

Antonio P. Pueyo
This is mission possible: to proclaim justice, to defend life in all its stages, to work for peace, to build communities, to care for the defenseless, to advocate for an ecologically sound planet, to proclaim the good news about life in Jesus Christ and membership in God's family.

New! Beyond Space and Time
Ascension (A)

Antonio P. Pueyo
The Ascension event reminds us that our destiny is beyond space and time. Like the Lord Jesus we will be with the Father.

New! The Eyes of the Heart
Homily for the Solemnity of the Ascension of the Lord

Douglas McManaman
The heart loves, and those who love God will know God in a way that is inaccessible to the intellect by itself. It is love of God that begets a certain intellectual light, namely wisdom.

New! From Ascension to Pentecost the passage of a lifetime

Tom Bartolomeo
He was the same Jesus whom the Apostles knew before. His demeanor had changed or, rather, the Apostles' attitudes had changed after Jesus rose from the dead. Jesus' meetings with his Apostles are now spontaneous.

New! A Gospel Without an Ascension. (Ascension)

Proclaim Sermons
The story of the ascension of Jesus is told in Mark and Luke, and John hints at it in several places. But Jesus never ascends in Matthew. Instead, he gives us new insights into the nature of God, our mission as Christians and his ongoing presence with us.
