HOMILY FOR THE FOURTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME YEAR B HOMILY THEME: HOW MUCH DO YOU KNOW GOD BY: Fr. Benny Tuazon   HOMILY: (Mk. 1:21-28) In the day’s Gospel, the Fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time two things are revealed about Jesus and the unclean spirit which represent evil.

HOMILY FOR SATURDAY OF THE THIRD WEEK IN ORDINARY TIME YEAR B (2) HOMILY THEME: YAHWEH SEES 

HOMILY FOR SATURDAY OF THE THIRD WEEK IN ORDINARY TIME YEAR B HOMILY THEME: YAHWEH SEES BY: Rev. Fr Livinus Igbodekwe   HOMILY: One of the errors of the human mind is thinking God to be with certain limitations in knowledge. We humans don’t know what we don’t see because we can’t see all things all the time but God sees all things all the time. This error of human thinking makes man think that he has a hideout in which the eyes of God don’t reach. We steal, fornicate, covet at…

WHEN WE APOLOGIZE!

WHEN WE APOLOGIZE! We sometimes find it difficult to say “SORRY” especially when we strongly feel we have done nothing wrong. Relationships have been severally ruined because parties involved see no need to saying a sincere “SORRY” and move on. Have you ever had to say you are SORRY?

HOMILY FOR SATURDAY OF THE THIRD WEEK IN ORDINARY TIME YEAR B HOMILY THEME: BE STILL AND KNOW THAT I AM GOD BY: Fr. Benny Tuazon   HOMILY: (Mk. 4:35-41) In the day’s Gospel we have Jesus on a boat seemingly unmindful of the danger of being overturned and broken by the strong waves and the violent squall. The apostles were appalled by His attitude. They felt He did not care about what may happen to them. They were, of course, wrong. Awaken by His apostles, He rebuked the wind…
