Great Catholic Homilies

"Faith comes by hearing, and what is heard is the Word of Christ."

No meat on Friday? What’s the rule?

I wish you would stop bringing up that business of no meat on Friday.  Don’t you know that has been done away with?  Ever hear of Vatican II?

So you say.  But what does the Church say?

Well, you never hear anybody, any priest talk about it.  That’s good enough for me.

Let’s look at the Catechism of the Catholic Church.  That’s always a good resource.  And by the way, it was written after Vatican II.  Let’s see what it says.  Ah, here  it is.  It says, “You shall observe the prescribed days of  fasting and abstinence.”

Well, that doesn’t say anything about Friday.

You’re right.  But there’s a footnote.  It refers you to Canon Law.

Argh! Continue Reading…

In the past three weeks, I had the pleasure of spending a lot of time with Catholic teens and young adults. Two weeks were spent at Life Teen camp in Northern Georgia. Another weekend was at a Steubenville East Conference in Rhode Island. At each of these Catholic events, I was one of the Catholic priests assigned to provide the youth with the Sacraments and a priestly presence.

Many today have a pessimistic view of the future generations. We picture our teens and young adults concerned only with themselves and their enjoyment. It is thought that they are spending hours playing violent video games, obsessed with texting or taking selfies, and involved in all sorts of inappropriate behaviors. Unfortunately, this is often true of many of our youth who are growing up in less than ideal family situations and bombarded by a culture of self-gratification. Luckily for them, as St Paul says, “where sin abounds grace abounds all the more (Rom 5:20).” After hearing hundreds of confessions and witnessing the youths’ genuine desire for holiness, I can say that God’s grace is abounding despite the trials of our age.

Let me see what you’re reading, Charlie.

It’s the baptism rite.

The baptism rite! You’re kidding.

Well, I got to wondering what I was getting into when I was baptized. I came acrosos this prayer. It says, in part, “may the Lord touch your mouth to proclaim his faith, to the praise and glory to God the Father.” That’s really something.

Indeed it is. The infant had no idea of what he was getting into. But now as an adult, he realizes what it means.

But how can my mouth proclaim His faith? I’m not a preacher, I’m not

Charlie, you look kind of excited. Not your usual self.

Yeah, I know. I just ran across something by St. Augustine and it rang a bell with me.

Oh? And what was that?

St. Augustine said if you say “enough,” you’re dead.

That’s pretty striking. What bell did that ring with you?

You remember the famous Faust legend? Continue Reading…
