The Holy Spirit is given to us to help us stay united to Christ. How do we see this happen? How doess the Holy Spirit want to help us stay close to Jesus? To see Him?
Do Catholics really worship Mary and the saints? This week on "To Know and To Love," I discuss how Catholics approach devotion to the saints, how it is different than the worship we give to God, and throw out some smart sounding theology terms.
In this episode of "To Know and to Love", I discuss how to live a fruitful spiritual life in the current world of social distancing. I'll be answering the questions: "How can I fruitfully participate in Mass virtually?", "What should I be doing during this time of quaratine?" and more!
The veiled statues and images that we see today remind us of that mysterious absence of our Lord after His Death and before His Resurrection. But the veil that lies over us eventually will be removed, just as that absence was filled with the presence of the Risen Lord. This homily was given by Fr. Eric Leyble, Pastor of St. Genevieve Catholic Churc…
This is the first installment of a podcast segment called "To Know and To Love". It will be a series of short reflections on different truths of the faith. This week, after a weekend of no public celebrations of Mass, there are many emotions and questions that fill our minds. In this episode of "To Know and To Love", I consider the most pressing qu…
To love the Lord fully, we must grow in our knowledge of Him. Join me in this weekly segment to break open the teachings of the Church and to grow in our knowledge and love of the Lord and of His Church.
As we meditate on Mary's "yes" this feast day, what does she have to show us about the meaning and depth of our prayer?
I sat down for a brief Instagram live-stream with my good friend and classmate Fr. Donald Bernard, Parochial Vicar of St. Mary Magdalene Catholic Church in Abbeville, LA, Priest of the Diocese of Lafayette. We talk about what it's like being a newly ordained priest in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. We talk about prayer, ministering to people i…
in the midst of a pandemic, life has changed completely. Many voices are pressuring us to fume, fear, and doubt. Jesus promises joy amidst pain and suffering. Are you listening to the voices of fear opening your ears to the voice of Jesus?
Any good coach knows you don't win football games just by playing in the last minute. The same is true of life. If we aren't "competing well" like St. Paul all throughout our Christian life, can we really be sure that everything will work out in the end? How is the Lord challenging us to do more, so that we may finish well? This weekend, St. Genevi…
God is constantly calling to us. He persistently asks us to listen to Him. Are we willing to swallow our pride and listen to Him?
The best attitude is gratitude. But what does it mean to have real gratitude?
"The person who is trustworthy in very small matters is also trustworthy in great ones."
Our Lord is clear on one thing: the love of God always exceeds what we expect.
The call to discipleship can be taunting. But you'll never reach the goal if you don't start.
As Jesus continues on his way to Jerusalem, he offers a parable that challenges us to a high level of generosity.
Jesus proposes to us the way to salvation: "Strive to enter the narrow gate." Are you willing to follow his command, or do you presume that all will be well regardless?
Prophets don't have easy or fun jobs. And yet, they have something to teach us about our mission as Jesus' disciples. Are we willing to heed our Lord's words and follow in the footsteps of the prophets?
We can learn so many things from Mary, but today especially she teaches us two key virtues for holiness. This homily was given at St. Patrick's Church in New Orleans for a Solemn HIgh Mass in the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite.
Mary shows us that God always fulfills His promises.
God calls us to be saints, but that can seem like an impossible goal. How can someone like me achieve something so great?The answer can be found from a very ancient source: Abraham.
If we set our sights on the things that are "above", on God, that means that our earthly life will need to change.
All of us have ideas about what God is like? But where do we truly learn who He is? In teaching us how to pray, Jesus also wants to show us who the Father is.
What is the first step to being a true disciple of Christ? What is the one thing necessary?
Envy and jealousy. The sins that keep us from seeing the Lord's blessings.
Freedom is a great gift. But what does it mean to truly be free?
Where is God? Where can we find Him? The answer might be closer than you think.
Today we meditate on the greatest mystery of the faith, the Holy Trinity. What does this mystery show us about how God loves? What does this teach us about how we are to love?
We may not have to save the world from aliens and super villains, but Jesus' mission can feel like just as impossible a task at time. How are we supposed to follow him when his demands seem too high or we seem too unprepared, unqualified?
The mystery is of cross is so awesome that silence is the most fitting way to approach it.
It's the beginning of Lent, and already we become aware that Lent is hard. We don't want to deny ourselves and temptation is hard to resist. Where can we find relief? What does Christ have to offer s this First Sunday?
"Blessed are you who are poor, for the Kingdom of God is yours."
"Depart from me, Lord, for I am a sinful man." What is God's response we when recognize our sinfulness as St. Peter did?
Whats so special about Mary and what does it mean for her to be the Mother of God?
Advent is a season of waiting, but after a long time of waiting, we can feel discouraged or even fall into despair. What does the Lord have to tell us when we can't wait any longer?
What does is really mean for Christ to be our King?
Don't settle far being simply an "OK" Christian. We all desire greatness and Jesus calls us to it. Choose greatness and follow Him, an let go of whatever stands in the way of following Him.
"It's your Church, Lord. I'm going to bed." Do we have faith that the Lord will bring forth good works and fruit? Does our faith inform the works we do for the Church?
The ministry of the Church is not ours to own. It is God's work, the work of the Church.
"It is not good for man to be alone." God knows that we are not meant for isolation. He has created us for each other. He has created us for communion.
God has loved us enough to send angels to guard us and guide us to Him. Do we cooperate with them?
Divide and conquer. One of the greatest strategies of the enemy against us. How do we fall into this trap? And how do we work against it?
When life seems vain and empty, the Lord invites us to make him our strength.
"To do what is right and just pleases God more than sacrifice," because true sacrifice to God should lead us to do what is right and just.
Sometimes we misunderstand what it means to be humble, what it means to be a saint. What does Christ demand when he demands humility? How does a saint really act in the face of injustice?
Faith is received. Faith is a gift. We are merely stewards of God's gift.
"You believe that God is one; you do well. Even the demons believe -- and shudder." (James 2:19) What separates the believer from the demon? What is real faith supposed to look like?
Christ is not afraid of death. He enters into it. He enters into the darkness.
Have we closed our ears to the word of God? Have we been struck mute in our spreading of the Gospel? Jesus offers us the remedy: "Ephphatha...be opened."
Who is the "unjust" we seek judgment from today?
