Homily / Offer and join our sufferings to the sufferings of Jesus on the cross for the conversion of sinners.
1. Church is the People of God
Our church building is not the church but rather the people of God coming together in unity to worship God. In the CCC 810 it says that, “the universal Church is seen to be a people brought into unity from the unity of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit"
2. We need to strive for unity as a parish
Homily / “I encourage you today to pray for a change of heart. That we will allow ourselves to be empowered by the Holy Spirit. That we will have a desire to live as saints, to live a life of holiness, to live a life free of sin, and to live a life motivated by a love for God and love for one another. Ask the Holy Spirit to plant that desire in your hearts.”
