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! Woe to me!
Fifth Sunday of Ordinary Time - B

Frank Enderle
Even though society is not in agreement with what we teach, even if people stop coming to our Church because we preach things that they do not want to hear, we have to continue valiantly teaching what Christ himself handed down to us. Woe to us if we do not.

New! Healing - Charity in Action
5th Sunday in Ordinary Time (B)

Antonio P. Pueyo
One of our priest-doctor's favorite story was about his arrival in his first parish. His first sick call was not to administer the sacrament of anointing of the sick. It was to deliver a baby!

New! How’s Your Day?
5th Sunday in Ordinary Time (B)

Antonio P. Pueyo
Both Freud and Jung describe a meaningful life as having the essentials of love and work. When we live our lives in love and service, then life ceases to be a drudgery. Each day becomes an adventure.

New! That Subversive Sabbath

Sabbath time is a different quality of time - and that's subversive!

New! About Simon's Mother-in-Law (Ordinary Times 5)

Proclaim Sermons
Mark's Gospel gets right to the point. In chapter 1, it's clear that Jesus' teaching and healing are the mission. His healing of Simon's mother-in-law challenges us today to listen to the unassuming folks who never demand acknowledgment.
