September 4th, 2016 Carry Your Own Cross

Fr. Corwin's homily on Sunday, September 4th, 2016 on Carrying our own crosses is a metaphor that means our road to holiness may not be to our liking and it may be difficult. We may be called to do something or be something that makes some sacrifice and suffering to our own desires for the sake of God and others.

December 14, 2014

Fr. Corwin preaches about the physical preparations and rituals we go through through in order to fully experience the spiritual works and sacraments in our life. By preparing physically to dress for Church, enter the church, kneel to pray, we open our minds to God and prepare to encounter Him. We use all of our senses to encounter Christ in a uniquely Catholic way. We hear the Word of God, we smell the incense in the church, we see the consecration by the priest, touch the sacrament in our hand, we taste the body and blood of Christ. We prepare and use all of our senses because we want to intimately know God and love him.
