Third Sunday of Advent. Father Dave draws a connection between the two themes of patience and joy in today's readings. While we're joyful that the birth of Jesus is coming, we must also practice patience in the waiting, so that when he arrives, it will truly be a joyful experience. Preached at St. Paul the Apostle Church, New York City on 12-11-16.

Monday of the Thirty-Fourth Week in Ordinary Time. Today's reading says that only 144,000 people will be allowed to get into Heaven, but is that really the case? Father Dave explains that instead of getting caught up with all the numbers mentioned in today's readings, we should focus on Following Jesus everyday. Preached at St.Paul the Apostle Church, New York City on 11-21-16.
