Monday of the Eleventh Week in Ordinary Time. In today’s reading from 2 Corinthians, Paul addresses believers by calling them “fellow workers.” Does your Christian life feel like a job? Maybe it should. Father Dave explains being Christian isn’t always warm and fuzzy. It might feel like work, and that’s okay. Living a Christian life involves things that are hard to do like forgiving, loving unconditionally, and serving others. Preached at Saint Paul the Apostle Parish in New York City on 6-17-19.

Solemnity of the Nativity of Saint John the Baptist.The opening prayer for Mass today says that John the Baptist was raised up by God to “make ready a nation fit for Christ the Lord.” Father Dave invites us to consider that in today’s world, it's us believers who take up that task from John: making ready the people in our lives to receive Jesus the Lord. Preached at Saint Paul the Apostle Parish in New York City on 6-24-19.
