Homily - 5th Sunday of the Year C

by Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Akalue

In this homily, Fr. Emmanuel focuses on the beauty and splendor of the Word of God. It is timeless and infinite. We're called to always hang on the Word of God. God is infinite in all perfection. When we encounter God, we should be filled with the sense of our "nakedness", our utter wretchedness, as we see in the case of Prophet Isaiah, and with Saints Paul and Peter. No human being can boast in the presence of God. Always take a chance with God; nothing is impossible for Him. Peter gave Jesus a chance. The outcome was an overwhelming. Peter was overcome by his unworthiness. Christ forgave him and commissioned as a harbinger of the Word for ministry of saving souls. St. Paul also focused on this Word and spoke about the heart of the Ministry. This is an invitation to focus on the essentials of the faith (Paschal Mystery). Jesus wants us to commit to the vocation to evangelize. Our Catholic Appeal, next weekend, is an opportunity to play our part in the ministry of bringing Jesus and His mercy to all.

Homily - 5th Sunday of the Year C

by Deacon Bill Wanca

In this homily, Deacon Bill subtly points out what is not immediately obvious in Christ's words to St. Peter: "Put out into the deep and lower your nets for a catch." Fish largely remain at the bottom of the sea in the daytime and only come to the surface to feed at night. But Peter didn't argue as such; he gave Jesus a chance. The outcome was an overwhelmingly great. This made Peter overcome by his unworthiness. Christ forgave him and commissioned him for ministry of souls. What an example for us! This is an invitation to focus on the essentials of the faith. Jesus wants us to commit to the vocation to evangelize. Our Catholic Appeal, next weekend, is an opportunity to play our part in the ministry of bringing Jesus and His mercy to all.

Homily - St. Agatha, Virgin and Martyr (Memorial)

by Rev. Fr. Emmanuel Akalue

Each one of us has his or her own salvation journey. God manifests in different ways to save His own. St. Agatha was fortified in spirit to preserve her dignity, holiness and chastity even unto death. Her abuser couldn't manipulate her to compromise. John the Baptist cooperated with God's grace and remained faithful till death. Even the persecution and imprisonment by King Herod did not silence him. Both Agatha and John the Baptist's salvation history are examples of victory, not misfortune or defeat! It's the victory of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. "Learn from me; I am meek and humble of heart and you will find rest for your souls" (Matt 11:29). God trumps over every obstacle, every "Goliath", in our lives. Never be afraid of the "Goliath" of death. "Be faithful unto death and I will give you the crown of life" (Rev. 2:10). Never allow yourself to become manipulated by anyone into sin. Never be dragged into making promises which lead you away from God. And if you mistakenly make a wrong promise, don't behave foolishly like King Herod. He was manipulated into making bogus promises, yet he decided to go with the flow in order to keep his word and because of what people/his guests might say; rather take back your word. Err on the side of good, not evil. You don't owe the devil anything; you have no portion with Satan. May God be glorified through your life and in your death. Amen.
