July 17, 2022 – The Top 10 things to say, or not to say, to someone who is grieving  – We often don’t know what to say to someone who is hurting or grieving. So we sometimes avoid the person, or we say things that aren’t helpful at all. Fr. Joe gives us some simple, concrete suggestions in this homily called “The top ten things to say – or not to say – to someone who is grieving.” We hope you like it.

June 26, 2022 – What if YOU lost the future you had planned?

  • In any transition we face, when we let go, what do we lose; what do we gain; what stays the same no matter what?  
  • Sometimes it is good to look at past letting goes: Did we survive? What was hard about that? Did we find any blessings that we did not expect along the way? 
  • Have we ever held on TOO long… and how did that work out? What would we do differently now?  
  • Is there anything we might be holding onto right now that keeps us from being as alive as we could be? Why would we or why wouldn’t we let go? What would help us do so?
