Hi! This is Fr. Patrick Gonyeau, a priest in the Archdiocese of Detroit, and I'd love to share with you the Word of God. I was once an agnostic and dared God to show me He was real...and the rest is history. There is no greater gift that we can receive than Jesus Christ who brings us the joy of salvation! It is my hope and prayer that these homilies bring to you and those you share them with the joy of knowing and loving Jesus...who is calling all of us!

Homily for the Seventh Sunday in Ordinary Time

Homliy for the 6th Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year A

Why does God give us commandments?  When Jesus said He didn’t come to abolish the laws, but to fulfill it, what did He mean?  One look at a crucifix reminds us that Jesus is the king of passionate love, and in the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus teaches us that God’s commandments are an affair of the heart between God & His beloved people.

02/05/17 - Homily for the Fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year A
