Corde Romano: 31st Sunday OT 2017

One of the fun things for me to do on a Sunday afternoon or Monday morning is to see all of my brother priests who studied in Rome with me post their homilies. It’s amazing to see both the similarities in some cases and completely different perspectives on the same readings in other cases.

Fr. Royce Gregerson was a classmate of mine, a fellow foodie, good friend and is a priest of the Diocese of Fort Wayne – South Bend, Indiana. Here’s his homily on our reverence for the Eucharist and it’s consequences on our conduct in Church.

Fr. Ryan Browning was a two years ahead of me and is a priest of the Diocese of Rockford, Illinois. Here’s his homily on our relationship with authority and truth.

Lastly, here is my video reflection for this week. It’s an analogy on the spiritual life and one of my favorite hobbies, BBQ.

As always, it’s amazing to see despite us all looking at the same readings, we come up with so many different reflections.

One of the fun things for me to do on a Sunday afternoon or Monday morning is to see all of my brother priests who studied in Rome with me post their homilies. It’s amazing to see both the similarities in some cases and completely different perspectives on the same readings in other cases.

I thought it would be fun to start sharing links to their homilies so others could get a chance to hear/read them as well.

Fr. Patrick Broussard was a year ahead of me and currently serves as Vocations Director for the Diocese of Lafeyette in Louisiana.

Fr. Darin Schmidt was a classmate of mine from the Diocese of Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Here’s his homily on our relationship to the state and the Kingdom of God.

Fr. Ryan Browning was a two years ahead of me and is a priest of the Diocese of Rockford, Illinois. Here’s his homily on our need to give our all in our relationship with God.

Lastly, here is my video reflection on the Sunday readings. Since I don’t have a parish, I don’t get to preach. But those who know me, know how I love preaching, so I’ve been doing these little videos instead.

Amazing to see despite us all looking at the same readings, we come up with so many different reflections.
