June 2014

June 29, 2014 Solemnity of Saints Peter and Paul

Solemnity of St. Peter and Paul, the Pillars of the Catholic Church standing at the side Jesus her Cornerstone.  The role of the apostles in preaching the Gospel and spreading the Good News to the whole world. Jesus gave Peter the keys to the Kingdom. “Upon this rock I will build my Church”.



June15, 2014 Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity (Father’s Day)

Fr. John Marie Bingham’s last homily at St. Dominic’s in Benicia. Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity and Father’s Day.Who are you? I am a Christian, with that statement you say all that is necessary. When Moses asks God who is speaking at the burning bush, God answers.”I Am Who Am.” With this statement He hides more than He reveals, until God sends his only Son to reveal his love for the world and the Holy Trinity. He is 3 persons in One Almighty God.

 



June 8th, Pentecost Sunday

Pentecost has all of the drama and action that could be imagined in a Hollywood action scene, just image the imagery of the fire Holy Spirit that splits into a dozen flames and lands on the heads of the Apostles and Mary. The Holy Spirit gave the gift of language to the apostles to share God’s love and message to all people, they become the conduits. They spoke and people responded. The Holy Spirit gives each of us special gifts- all intended for the Glory of God, not for our personal glory.



Friday June 6, Rev. Br. Corwin Low’s First Homily

Br. Corwin’s First Homily as a Deacon at St. Dominc’s Benicia



June 1, 2014 Ascension of the Lord

Fr Jerome’s homily on June 1st, Ascension of the Lord. Mission, Mystery, and Monsters. These three concepts that make up the best Hollywood blockbusters can also help us to understand our spiritual journey. The disciples are sent to baptize everyone, their mission. After his Ascension they had to delve deeper into Jesus’ lessons and what they witnessed, and contemplate the mysteries. Finally, the monsters or in our case, the devil and temptation to sin, we have to battle these challenges to keep our selves close to God to our true spiritual union with Christ.

Jesus said abide in me. Fr David speaks about our need and requirement to spread the Gospel and share our faith. Do not be afraid, the Holy Spirit is God’s love personally among us.



May 18, 2014 Fifth Sunday of Easter, First Holy Communion

Fr. John Marie talks the children, and parish,  celebrating through First Holy Communion why Jesus wants to give Himself to us in the Blessed Sacrament of Communion. Jesus said “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one gets to the Father but through me.” Jesus is calling us forward, He wants to transform us, and he wants to give us Life to out-pour His love in the world.
