October 8th, 2009

Thursday of the Twenty-seventh Week in Ordinary Time. Father Dave elucidates a possibly misleading quotation from scripture regarding asking and receiving gifts from the Lord. (Preached on Thursday, October 8th, 2009, 12:15pm, St. Malachy’s Church, Broadway and 49th, Times Square, New York City.)
(Please forgive us for the small technical issue.)…

October 2nd, 2009

Memorial of the Guardian Angels. Father Dave asks us an interesting question here: imagine if we were just as eager to receive messages from God as we are to get calls and text messages? (Preached on Thursday, October 2nd, 2009, 12:15pm, St. Malachy’s Church, Broadway and 49th, Times Square, New York City.)…

October 1st, 2009

Saint Thérèse of the Child Jesus, virgin and doctor of the Church. It may be hard to get your head around the concept, but indeed the Kingdom of God is at hand, and thus we must live as children of God. We are missionaries all in our own way. (Preached on Thursday, October 1st, 2009, 12:15pm, St. Malachy’s Church, Broadway and 49th, Times Square, New York City.)…

September 27th, 2009

Twenty-sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time. It is up to us to spread the tent wider and wider to welcome people into the celebration of the Lord, yet not up to us to judge who is outside the tent. (Preached on Sunday, September 27th, 2009, 6:00pm, St. Malachy’s Church, Broadway and 49th, Times Square, New York City…

September 25th, 2009

Friday of the Twenty-fifth Week in Ordinary Time. Although it may not always seem like it, there is perpetual hope and glory of the Holy Spirit within each and every one of us now and forever. (Preached on Friday, September 25th, 2009, 12:15pm, St. Malachy’s Church, Broadway and 49th, Times Square, New York City.)…

September 20th, 2009

Twenty-fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time. Although we must indeed plan our future in some regards, we should attempt to be vulnerable and open to God’s will as well. (Preached on Sunday, September 20th, 2009, St. John the Baptist Church, Longmont, CO)…

September 15th, 2009

Memorial of Our Lady of Sorrows. It is hard and troubling to imagine a greater sorrow than a mother losing one of her own children. Mary the mother of God knows this pain and will nurture us through our pain in times of need. (Preached on Sunday, September 15th, 2009, St. Frances Cabrini Parish, Littleton, CO)…

September 14th, 2009

Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross. Father Dave reminds us that with death comes resurrection; both in the case of our Lord and with our own personal tragedies. (Preached on Sunday, September 14th, 2009, St. Frances Cabrini Parish, Littleton, CO)…

September 13th, 2009

Twenty-fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time. Father Dave sheds some light on the potentially perplexing reading where Jesus says to Peter ”get behind me, Satan.” I’ll give you a hint: maybe we shouldn’t always take the easy way. (Preached on Sunday, September 13th, 2009, 5:15pm, St. Frances Cabrini Parish, Littleton, CO)…

September 11th, 2009

Friday of the Twenty-third Week in Ordinary Time. On this day, as we observe the anniversary of the tragic event that occurred 8 years ago, we are also called to look inside ourselves to find the love of Christ to spread and heal the sometimes dark world around us. (Preached on Friday, September 11th, 2009, 12:15pm, St. Malachy’s Church, Broadway and 49th, Times Square, New York City.)…

September 10th, 2009

Thursday of the Twenty-third Week in Ordinary Time. Father Dave admits that today’s readings are certainly daunting, especially in terms of the challenges that the readings ask you to do. But we are reminded to take things one step at a time. (Preached on Thursday, September 10th, 2009, 12:15pm, St. Malachy’s Church, Broadway and 49th, Times Square, New York City.)…

September 6th, 2009

Twenty-third Sunday in Ordinary Time. James calls us to “show no partiality,” to treat the garbage collector as we would treat the mayor. But who among us would that task be easy for? So James and Father Dave reminds us to strive to treat everyone equally, regardless of our biases and conceptions. (Preached on Sunday, September 6th, 2009, 12:15pm, St. Malachy’s Church, Broadway and 49th, Times Square, New York City.)…

September 4th, 2009

Friday of the Twenty-second Week in Ordinary Time. The readings today tell us that indeed Christ is preeminent, present in all things for all time. How is this represented today? We should strive to keep Jesus present in us at all times. (Preached on Thursday, September 10th, 2009, 12:15pm, St. Malachy’s Church, Broadway and 49th, Times Square, New York City.)…

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.)…
