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! Christ is risen! Alleluia!
Easter Sunday B-1

Al Carino
If Jesus lived today, the international media, complete with pictures and video footages, would have treated the resurrection as Breaking News and and perhaps would have written it up with a screaming headline as follows: "Woman, two others find empty tomb!"

New! He is risen! Alleluia!
The Resurrection of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ B

Frank Enderle
Christ overcame that barrier of death. In doing so, He gave humanity the possibility of returning to the Paradise lost by Adam and Eve. Jesus promises us that when the time comes for us to cross that barrier; we will see Him face to face. He also tells us that when we leave this earthly existence, our destiny will depend on how we prepared ourselves for our life in eternity.

New! Salvation History Has Changed Forever
1st Sunday of Easter (B)

Jeremiah R. Grosse
The transforming power of God has changed the course of human history forever. No longer are we slaves to the sin, but we are truly free. By rising from the grave, Jesus broke the chains of death and made us, once more, heirs to the Kingdom of Heaven.

In this passage we see how people react to the Resurrection, to the knowledge that it's true, it really happened, Jesus really is risen ... risen indeed! And it is not the reaction that we ourselves have come to take for granted.
