Homily from the Sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time. The Sermon on the Mount reveals the truth about our hearts: we need the Law. But God wants us to be free from the Law. Not by abolishing the Law, but by making our hearts like His. We can let Him do this by taking responsibility, taking action, and taking hold of the strength He offers. Mass Readings f…
 
Peace in the present moment doesn’t come easily. It’s part of human nature to fixate on disappointments of the past, and if we’re honest, the self-talk can be brutal: “How could I ever have said that?” “Why did I make that horrible mistake?” “Will everyone remember me for this?” Worries about the future can be overwhelming, too: “Will everything tu…
 
Homily from the Fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time. Refuse to live as salt and light, and the Father remains unknown, unloved, and unglorified. God trusts us with being His representatives in this world. He has made us His and He has made us good. But to what end? God has made us good for a purpose. Do we live in such a way that we have been made good f…
 
On Candlemas, Catholics celebrate the Feast of the Presentation of Jesus and bless the candles that will be used in the Church's liturgical life throughout the following year. Reflecting on the prophesy of Simeon that we read in Scripture on this great feast, Dr. Sri explains how Jesus’ Presentation marks a climactic moment in all of Salvation Hist…
 
Homily from the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord. Unimpressive does not mean unimportant. Most of life is made up of unimpressive moments and unimpressive seasons. If we are constantly waiting for the next “peak moment“ we will miss out on most of life…and also most peak moments. Mass Readings from February 2, 2020: Malachi 3:1-4 Psalm 24:7-10…
 
Pontius Pilate knew Jesus was innocent, but he didn’t have the courage to stand up for truth. So, he allowed Jesus to be crucified. While literal crucifixions don’t happen today (at least not in our society), that’s figuratively what happens when we don’t stand up for truth—people suffer. Standing up for truth is often incredibly uncomfortable, esp…
 
Homily from the Third Sunday in Ordinary Time. Do not underestimate what God is doing when it seems like God is doing nothing. There are seasons of silence, and hiddenness, and brokenness in all of our lives. These times are not just useful, they are necessary for us to become the kind of people God needs us to be. Mass Readings from January 26, 20…
 
St. Mother Teresa's chapel was bare, austere, and simple, yet two simple words were written on the wall where a large crucifix hung: “I thirst.” What do you think these two words meant to Mother Teresa? Is this phrase simply a statement of God’s collective love for mankind, or did Mother Teresa understand it to mean more than that? Today’s episode …
 
Homily from the Second Sunday in Ordinary Time. The single unifying principle unites all of the various threads of our life into one whole image. It is “too little” to remain who you are instead of becoming who God needs you to be. Mass Readings from January 19, 2020: Isaiah 49:3, 5-6 Psalm 40:2, 4, 7-10 1 Corinthians 1:1-3 John 1:29-34 TO DOWNLOAD…
 
We know that spending time in Eucharistic Adoration is an incredible thing, but it’s so easy to get distracted! And when it comes to the practicals, should you sit, stand or kneel? Should you read a spiritual book or write in your journal? What kinds of things should you pray about? How can you listen better and actually hear God’s voice? Father Jo…
 
In this special live interview with Father Mike Schmitz, Father identifies the major barrier to decision-making that he sees plague so many Catholics: the fear of making the wrong choice and disappointing God. This fear might keep someone from making a major vocational step of discernment, (e.g. entering the seminary or proposing), or it could keep…
 
How do you know if you truly love someone? Is it when you have a powerful romance with intense feelings? Is it simply a deep desire to be with a certain person? St. Pope John Paul II reveals THE indicator of true love for another: a profound sense of responsibility to care for their heart. Today’s episode of All Things Catholic examines that realit…

Homily from the Fourth Sunday of Advent. Emmanuel. God is working with us to save the world. God does not need us. But He has demonstrated that He does not want to heal, transform, or save the world without our help. He only needs us to be the kind of people who are willing and able. Mass Readings from December 22, 2019: Isaiah 7:10-14 Psalm 24:1-2…
 
As Christmas draws closer, the Gospel readings focus on the Gospel of Matthew, which begins with something seemingly mundane—the genealogy of Christ. Why does Matthew start his Gospel with a genealogy? If you look at it from the point of view of a first century Jew, it’s completely captivating. These names reveal a lot about the history of God’s ch…
 
Do you put Mary on such a pedestal that you feel like you can’t relate to her at all?

Dr. Edward Sri explains how this Advent, the Lord has special graces in store for you, if only you make space for him in your…
 
Homily from the Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe. Jesus loves you and He hasn’t forgotten you. It is easy to feel forgotten and forsaken…even by God. But God notices, loves, and remembers you. Mass Readings from November 24, 2019: 2 Samuel 5:1-3 Psalm 122:1-2, 3-4, 4-5 Colossians 1:12-20 Luke 23:35-43 TO DOWNLOAD THE BIBLE S…
 
Sometimes we think our intercession for others will work only if we say enough prayers or say the right ones, but the power of intercessory prayer lies in the love we put into the prayer and the love of our God who hears them. Dr. Edward Sri records this week’s episode from a place on the Sea of Galilee near Capernaum--where Jesus healed the paraly…
 
Homily from the Thirty-third Sunday in Ordinary Time. If comparison is a thief of joy, then we have to learn how to steal it back. In the battle to escape the comparison trap, we can become invincible to bad comparison by actively looking for the blessings, giving thanks, and inviting others into celebrating them. Because there are some things wort…
 
Purgatory often gets treated like a time out—the place you go because you did something bad—but it’s much more than that.

This episode will leave you with an essential truth about the all consuming love of God, motivation…

Homily from the Thirty-first Sunday in Ordinary Time. What makes them so great? What makes me so awful? When someone else being honored or loved more than we are meets our insecurity, we are tempted to tell stories…about them and about ourselves. But when we know who we are and are grateful for what we have, we have security. And comparison is powe…
 
Homily from the Thirtieth Sunday in Ordinary Time. What makes them so great? What makes me so awful? Comparison is the desire to be “more” than another. At the heart of that desire is fear. Vulnerability breaks through that fear. Mass Readings from October 27, 2019: Sirach 35:12-14, 16-18 Psalm 34:2-3, 17-18, 19, 23 2 Timothy 4:6-8, 16-18 Luke 18:9…
 
What does the Bible say about praying to saints? Are there biblical foundations for the Catholic tradition of asking saints to intercede for us? Oftentimes we’re challenged by our protestant brothers and sisters with the question, “Why pray to saints when you can just pray to Jesus?” You’re not alone if you believe there’s a good answer to that que…

Homily from the Twenty-ninth Sunday in Ordinary Time. Often, the next hardest step is the next step. Continuing to walk in the midst of failure, rejection, and imperfection is a sign of a great life.

Homily from the Twenty-seventh Sunday in Ordinary Time. How do you know God loves you? How do you know you are saved? Answer: the sacraments.

When we fall short, it’s easy to despair and berate ourselves for our failings. We’re tempted to turn our focus inward, and that’s exactly where the enemy wants us. Using the theology of St. Thérèse of Lisieux, Dr. Sri explains how this is the opposite of what God wants us to do. When we fail, instead of navel-gazing, we can recognize our littlenes…
 
Homily from the Twenty-sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time. Jesus took from us what was ours so He could give to us what is His. God’s grace is the cause of our salvation.

Homily from the Twenty-fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time. Jesus took from us what was ours so He could give to us what is His.

This is the free gift that saves us from hopelessness: we…

Homily from the Twenty-third Sunday in Ordinary Time. Out of everything in life, Jesus has to be first.
