A Catholic website for the modern reader
Added to these is a sample homily requested by the California Catholic Conference opposing Proposition 41 on the November 1984 ballot. It was hoped that other priests would use this as a springboard for developing their own preaching on this proposition.
The second set of homilies have been transcribed and edited from actual Sunday Masses I preached in various parishes. While most of them were based primarily on the Sunday readings, some were prepared for special occasions. Where feasible all the homilies are titled because it is an easy way to identify them as well as the themes they develop. They are also listed in the column for the Liturgical year and chronological order in which they occurred.
Since the transcription and editing processes are time consuming, this page is a work in progress. Previously recorded homilies will be added as the processes are completed, and new homilies will be added as they are prepared. I welcome you to check back for continued updates.
