There are many reasons why a person might not present themselves for communion, but we should always try to work to resolve those reasons.
We resist our routines and responsibilities, but it is in these routines that we follow the plan of God for our lives.
The homilies below are notes. They are my preparation for preaching. Sometimes they are complete texts, sometimes they are outlines, but they always differ from the delivered message. I write these out so that I can practice, and in practicing they often improve. Still, these are often the only physical copy I have of my various homilies, so I have chosen to post them here for reference.
The various and sundry other topics that may be addressed here are my opinions alone, and do not reflect the official position of my parish, my Archdiocese, or any other Catholic body beyond myself.
