Homily - Feast of the Kingship of Our Lord Jesus Christ - October 25, 2015

Col. 1:12-20; Jn. 18:33-37

Today, we celebrate the Feast of Christ the King.  It is noteworthy that our Lord manifests His kingship precisely in His passion and cross.  In what the world would consider weakness, He manifests His power.  He overcomes all things.  He even overcomes Himself.  He, of course, was sinless, and had no concupiscence.  But in the garden of Gethsemani, He experienced human frailty and the dread of death.  Even this, out of love, love of the Father, love for each of us, He overcame.

Homily - Twentieth Sunday after Pentecost - October 11, 2015

Eph. 5:15-20; Jn. 4:46-53

Today’s Gospel gives us the second of five signs in the Gospel of John in which he sheds light on unbelief and faith in the revelation of Christ as the Messiah.  In this Gospel, the ruler goes from no faith, to an imperfect but wonderful faith, to a great faith.

We must think that at the beginning, the man had no faith.  Our Lord seems to refuse his request that He heal his son.  He says, “Unless you see signs, you will not believe.”  What he did have was an actual grace, a prompting to seek our Lord.  His son was ill, he loved him, he was attached to him.  He may have heard of the miracles our Lord did in Cana and in Jerusalem.  This is how we come to faith.  When we meet the new catechumens, we ask them, “What brought you to the Church?”  It is often a crisis, a difficulty.  “I was going through a hard time.”  It does not look like an actual grace, but it is a prompting then, to seek faith.  And they have heard, through a friend, family member, co-worker, about our Lord, and that they may put their trust and faith in Him.
