Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross. What did it mean for Jesus to exalt the cross? What does it mean for us today to exalt the cross? (Preached on Thursday, Friday, September 14th, 2008, 6:00pm, St. Malachy’s Church, Broadway and 49th, Times Square, New York City.)

September 12th, 2008

Friday of the Twenty-third Week in Ordinary Time. It may seem sometimes that you don’t have what it takes to be a gold-medalist in your faith life, but indeed we should all live our faith as if Jesus was the prize. In that case, we all win. Preached on Friday, September 12th, 2008, 12:15pm, St. Malachy’s Church, Broadway and 49th, Times Square, New York City.)

September 11th, 2008

Thursday of the Twenty-third Week in Ordinary Time. The gospel reading today (which is included here) is almost eerily appropriate, as we are reminded by Jesus to indeed love our enemies on this, the 7th anniversary of 9//11. (Preached on Thursday, September 11th, 2008, 12:15pm, St. Malachy’s Church, Broadway and 49th, Times Square, New York City.)

August 28th, 2008

August 15th, 2008

Feast of the Assumption of Mary. Father Dave reminds us on this particular feast day that although we may not have exactly the same body as an Olympic athlete, we are still blessed by God with both a body as well as a soul, which indeed will be reunited in Heaven. Preached on Thursday, August 15th, 2008, 12:15pm, St. Malachy’s Church, Broadway and 49th, Times Square, New York City.

August 14th, 2008

Memorial of Saint Alphonsus Liguori, bishop and doctor of the Church. Does Jesus need our faith in order to do mighty deeds? No. And do we need Jesus to do mighty deeds in order to deserve our faith? No. But does our faith and his greatness go hand-in-hand and inspire one another to do good? Yes. Preached on Friday, August 1st, 2008, 12:15pm, St. Malachy’s Church, Broadway and 49th, Times Square, New York City.

August 13th, 2008

Saturday of the Eighteenth Week in Ordinary Time. Father Dave reminds us to keep our focus on Jesus, to not look down like Peter trying to walk on the water (yipe!) and start to sink.

Thursday of the Sixteenth Week in Ordinary Time.

August 3rd, 2008

Eighteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time. Who me? Do miracles? Nah, that’s for Jesus to do. Nope! Jesus uses each of us disciples to work his miracles. Here’s what you have to do to participate.

July 7th, 2008

Seventh Sunday of Easter. Admittedly, this homily is a tad “late,” as it is not the Easter season anymore. However, the message of this particular homily is always a good one: we must keep the faith, as we are the ones to do so, there is no “back-up plan.” Preached on May 4th, 2008, 12:15pm, St. Malachy’s Church, Broadway and 49th, Times Square, New York City.

June 27th, 2008

Friday of the Ninth Week in Ordinary Time. Father Dave helps us realize that indeed all Scripture is inspired by God, but that does not mean that all of it is exact fact. Scripture is a mix of poetry, song, images, and stories for God to communicate to us certain messages in order to inspire us to live a life inspired by God. St. Malachy’s Church, Broadway and 49th, Times Square, New York City. Friday, June 6, 2008, 12:15pm Mass.

June 12th, 2008

June 8, 2008. Tenth Sunday in Ordinary Time. We may think at times that each of us is not good enough, or not pious enough, or not worthy enough to be truly called by God. But Jesus says to us, like he said to Matthew, “Follow me.” Stop making excuses not to follow His calls. St. Malachy’s Church, Broadway and 49th, Times Square, New York City. Thursday, June 6, 2008, 12:15pm Mass.

May 30th, 2008

Friday of the Seventh Week in Ordinary Time. Although the readings at first seem like fairly bad news, Father Dave points out that in the responsorial psalm, we see that indeed “The Lord is kind and merciful.” We should remember that in terms of His kindness, His forgiveness is “as far as the East is from the West” – infinite.
St. Malachy’s Church, Broadway and 49th, Times Square, New York City. Friday, May 23, 2008, 12:15pm Mass.
