First Sunday of Lent. Father Dave helps us realize how to view and respond to the inevitable temptations of life, especially in this Lenten season. It helps to realize that we are all tempted, and so was Jesus.
St. Malachy’s Church, Broadway and 49th, Times Square, New York City. Sunday, February 10, 2008, 12:15pm Mass.

February 27th, 2008

If you are observing Lent by fasting and sacrificing something for yourself, you are not doing it fully. Fasting is not just giving something up, or other personal external motivations, but also prayer and giving alms to others. Let love persevere.
St. Malachy’s Church, Broadway and 49th, Times Square, New York City. Friday, February 8, 2008, 12:15pm Mass.

Jesus says: “If you wish to be my disciples, you have to pick up your cross and follow me.” Lent is indeed a time to look at the positive aspects of your life, but it is also a time to recognize what is tough for you, and to bring these challenges with you on your journey with Christ.
St. Malachy’s Church, Broadway and 49th, Times Square, New York City. Thursday, February 7, 2008, 12:15pm Mass.

February 18th, 2008

During this homily from Ash Wednesday, Father Dave reminds us that Lent provides us with a good time to turn away from certain things, and turn towards God “with our whole heart.” And although this is a good time for such actions, it is always a good time to do these things.
St. Malachy’s Church, Broadway and 49th, Times Square, New York City. Ash Wednesday Mass, February 6, 2008, 6:15pm.

February 14th, 2008

Fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time. Father Dave helps to clarify the possibly confusing blessings given by Jesus in the Beatitudes. Remember these choice Gospel words: “Rejoice and be glad even in the difficult times because God’s blessing means that God is with us.”
St. Malachy’s Church, Broadway and 49th, Times Square, New York City. TSunday Mass, February 3, 2008, 12:15pm.

January 15th, 2008

Tuesday of the First Week in Ordinary Time. “Things Are Not Always What They Seem.” Elli the priest thought hannah was making a drunken spectacle of herself, when in reality she was praying with great fervor. Hannah’s Song is one that speaks of the Biblical theme of reversal of fortunes. Is there something in your life that you think could never change? St. John the Baptist Catholic Church, Longmont, Colorado. 8:30am Weekday Mass. 01-15-08

January 14th, 2008

Monday of the First Week of Ordinary Time. “Where Are You Barren?” Hannah’s story may sound sad: she could have no children. But how are we like Hannah? In what ways do we feel useless, like we’re coming up short, a little dry? St. John the Baptist Catholic Church, Longmont, Colorado. 8:30 am Weekday Mass. 01-14-08.

December 25th, 2007

The Nativity of the Lord, Christmas Mass. As you see all the Top Ten lists in all the magazines and newspapers during this end-of-the-year season, try to remember some of the “God moments” of your year, and realize that God is indeed always present.
St. Malachy’s Church, Broadway and 49th, Times Square, New York City. Tuesday, December 25, 2007, 1:00pm Christmas Mass. (Please forgive us for the technical difficulties. Thank you.)

Thursday of the Second Week of Advent. So what is the big deal about John the Baptist? Why does Jesus hold him in such a high regard?

Thursday, December 13, 2007, 1:00pm. (Please forgive us for the technical difficulties. Thank you.)

December 12th, 2007

Second Sunday of Advent. The readings today tell us to live with hope in this season of Advent. However, this hope should be active, not passive. Do not presume that simply because we have accepted Jesus than we are completely saved, as this is too presumptuous of the Lord. We must repent and serve and hope for the Lord’s salvation. St. Malachy’s Church, Broadway and 49th, Times Square, New York City. Sunday 6:00pm Mass. (Original date: 12/09/07)

December 9th, 2007

December 5th, 2007

December 1st, 2007

Last Sunday in Ordinary Time. We might often say to ourselves: “I want be my own boss.” Well, just as this wish might not be all it’s cracked up to be, perhaps Jesus didn’t seem like the King everyone was waiting for. But indeed, Jesus is the best boss we could ever hope for. St. Malachy’s Church, Broadway and 49th, Times Square, New York City. Sunday 6:00pm Mass. (Original date: 11/25/07)

November 21st, 2007

The Feast of St. Albert. The readings today show us both that we do not have to “check our brains at the door,” and that the Holy Spirit may indeed share both male and female qualities.
