Using the gifts that God has given you.

I realize that this homily somewhat sounds like an endorsement for Apple and AT&T, but this is not the point. I am for all kinds of smartphones and cell phone carriers, as long as you use them properly. I hope that you enjoy the homily, and can apply it to you own life. If not, don't worry, I'm sure there's an App for it.

Being God's Friend

Once again I am happy to say that we have video of my homily, and I truly hope that you find this easier to pay attention too, than just the  audio. This past weekends homily pretty much focused on our relationship with God and how we live out this relationship. The Gospel tells us that God sees us as his friends, but in order for this to happen we need to follow his commandments. So, take some time this week and reexamine your relationship with God and see if it is truly a friendship with him or not.

I hope that you enjoy the video for the homily, I will continue to add the audio for a couple of weeks, and then probably discontinue the audio, but here it is:

Shepherding Yourself

 Many people have asked me how I record my homilies, and as I have mentioned before it is by the great people working the sound board. However, they also want to know what Mass I usually have recorded it at, and it usually is the last Mass that I do for the weekend because I think that I will finally have it all put together. Now this is usually the case, but this past weekend I definitely think that the 10:30 went al lot better than the 5:30, but I did not have the 10:30 recorded, only the 5:30 so that is the one that you can listen to if you want to. The homily was a little longer than usual, and jumped around a little bit, but I think it was a good one. I was even able to reference the Hunger Games in it, so take a listen:
