September 3rd, 2009

Memorial of Saint Gregory the Great, pope and doctor of the Church. We can a learn a lesson from the fishermen who were hesitant to try Jesus’ suggestion to lower the nets one more time after hours of trying, but did it anyway. They noticed that indeed, even though we may doubt it at times, Jesus knows best. (Preached on Thursday, September 3rd, 2009, 12:15pm, St. Malachy’s Church, Broadway and 49th, Times Square, New York City.)
(Please forgive us for the small technical issues on this one. I think you still get the point.)…

August 31st, 2009

Twenty-second Sunday in Ordinary Time. Although we might sometimes bristle against all the rules, Father Dave reminds us why we have rules and laws in the church. Indeed, Jesus was the rule personified, and thus we should strive to follow them. (Preached on Sunday, August 30th, 2009, 6:00pm, St. Malachy’s Church, Broadway and 49th, Times Square, New York City.)…

August 28th, 2009

Memorial of Saint Augustine, bishop and doctor of the Church. Some of the characters in the parable in today’s readings were unfortunately only prepared for a short period of time, not for the long haul. We can use this analogy to remind ourselves that we should strive to commit to our eternal relationship with God. (Preached on Friday, August 28th, 2009, 12:15pm, St. Malachy’s Church, Broadway and 49th, Times Square, New York City.)…

August 25th, 2009

Twenty-first Sunday in Ordinary Time (Year B). In  our modern culture, we are used to having it all. We get accustomed to not having to make an actual choice of one thing over the other. But as we see in the readings today, in terms of our faith lives, we do indeed need to choose. (Preached on Sunday, August 23th, 2009, 6:00pm, St. Malachy’s Church, Broadway and 49th, Times Square, New York City.)…

August 12th, 2009

Nineteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time. You may know someone who tends to complain a lot. Indeed, you may find yourself complaining from time to time, even about the church or your faith life. You may even catch yourself echoing the prophet Elijah’s sentiment of: “I quit.” Father Dave sympathizes with this occasional feeling, but also reminds us to strive to keep our faith life alive and continue to join each other around the table of the Lord. (Preached on Sunday, August 9th, 2009, 6:00pm, St. Malachy’s Church, Broadway and 49th, Times Square, New York City.)…

July 24th, 2009

Thursday of the Sixteenth Week in Ordinary Time. Although it may seem tedious or repetitive sometimes, Father Dave reminds us that if you really think about it, how could we really praise God too much? (Preached on Thursday, July 23, 2009, 12:15pm, St. Malachy’s Church, Broadway and 49th, Times Square, New York City.)…

July 15th, 2009

Memorial of Saint Bonaventure, bishop and doctor of the Church. Father Dave reminds us that we do not need to have magic powers to help someone, all we need to do is be there for somebody. Your presence alone can sometimes help someone more than anything else. (Preached on Wednesday, July 15, 2009, 12:15pm, St. Malachy’s Church, Broadway and 49th, Times Square, New York City.)…

July 2nd, 2009

Thursday of the Thirteenth Week in Ordinary Time. Father Dave uses the story of Abraham and Sarah receiving Isaac as a child as a gift from God, as an analogy for us to realize to indeed use our gifts that have been thankfully given to us to give back to God. (Preached on Thursday, July 2, 2009, 12:15pm, St. Malachy’s Church, Broadway and 49th, Times Square, New York City.)…

July 1st, 2009

Wednesday of the Thirteenth Week in Ordinary Time. Father Dave reminds us that even though the reaction by some people might be that they are completely overwhelmed by Jesus, we should still be spreading the word, and telling the people of the Good News. (Preached on Wednesday, July 1, 2009, 12:15pm, St. Malachy’s Church, Broadway and 49th, Times Square, New York City.)…

June 26th, 2009

Twelfth Sunday in Ordinary Time. It seems like in today’s readings that during the storm, the others are asking Jesus “Come on, Jesus! Why aren’t you helping us? Don’t you care about us?” Doesn’t it seem like we ask Jesus the same things during our personal storms? Jesus reassures them and us to remember to have faith and trust in his healing power. (Preached on Sunday, June 21, 2009, 6:00pm, St. Malachy’s Church, Broadway and 49th, Times Square, New York City.)…

June 25th, 2009

Thursday of the Twelfth Week in Ordinary Time. Father Dave explains that as in our daily lives, the words and our actions of our faith lives should reflect and even bolster one another. (Preached on Thursday, June 25, 2009, 6:00pm, St. Malachy’s Church, Broadway and 49th, Times Square, New York City.)…

June 19th, 2009

Solemnity of Most Sacred Heart of Jesus. Father Dave reminds us today, the start of the Year for the Priests, that we pray for the priests that have helped us along the way, and pray that more like that come along. (Preached on Friday, June 19, 2009, 12:15pm, St. Malachy’s Church, Broadway and 49th, Times Square, New York City.)…

June 14th, 2009

The Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ. Although the saying perhaps became famous in the late 20th century, St. Augustine taught us that indeed when you take the body of Christ, you are what you eat. (Preached on Sunday, June 14, 2009, 6:00pm, St. Malachy’s Church, Broadway and 49th, Times Square, New York City.)…

June 5th, 2009

Memorial Saint Boniface, bishop and martyr. When we hear the readings about Tobit who was healed of blindness, we are reminded of the power and significance of the term “thanks be to God,” not just for the good things, but perhaps for the seemingly bad things as well. (Preached on Friday, June 05, 2009, 12:15pm, St. Malachy’s Church, Broadway and 49th, Times Square, New York City.)…

June 4th, 2009

Thursday of the Ninth Week in Ordinary Time. Jesus asks us to love both God and neighbor, but how exactly do we go about loving and respecting our neighbor as ourselves? (Preached on Thursday, June 04, 2009, 12:15pm, St. Malachy’s Church, Broadway and 49th, Times Square, New York City.)…

May 29th, 2009

Friday of the Seventh Week of Easter. Father Dave reminds us that indeed we should be passionate about our faith, but to temper and balance this passion with charity and tenderness for others. (Preached on Friday, May 29, 2009, 12:15pm, St. Malachy’s Church, Broadway and 49th, Times Square, New York City.)…

May 28th, 2009

Thursday of the Seventh Week of Easter. Father Dave reminds us that God is not the angry boss looking down upon us and looking to make some cutbacks, as Jesus says “I wish that they all could be with me,” in everlasting life. (Preached on Thursday, May 28, 2009, 12:15pm, St. Malachy’s Church, New York City.)…

May 27th, 2009

Wednesday of the Seventh Week of Easter. On this day, the 9th anniversary of his ordination, Father Dave explains where a huge source of joy has come from in his nine years of the priesthood: tending the flock. And although this is indeed what priests are scripturally called to do, he urges all people to share in this goal. (Preached on Wednesday, May 27, 2009, 12:10pm, St. Paul the Apostle Church, New York City.)…

May 24th, 2009

Seventh Sunday of Easter. Father Dave invites us to get our Catholic passports stamped at mass as we enter the Kingdom of the Lord, and then use that passport to enter our other worlds like work and home and build our kingdom of love. (Preached on Sunday, May 24, 2009, 12:15pm, St. Malachy’s Church, Broadway and 49th, Times Square, New York City.)…

May 22nd, 2009

Friday of the Sixth Week of Easter. Jesus reassures us in the gospel today that although at times we may feel anguish in our day-to-day lives, faith in him will ensure that “No one will take your joy away from you.” (Preached on Friday, May 22, 2009, 12:15pm, St. Malachy’s Church, Broadway and 49th, Times Square, New York City.)…
