Fr. Dan Volkert is the Pastor of St. Bruno and St. Paul Catholic Churches in Dousman and Genesee Depot, WI. He is a gifted homilist and offers a refreshing take on the Gospel each week!
The primary mission of No Spin Homilies is to teach people about Sacred Scripture and help them to not only grow in wisdom and love of it but, also, to apply it in their daily lives. St. Jerome once said, “Ignorance of Scripture is ignorance of Christ.” We hope and pray that you will grow in the knowledge of Christ and the teachings of His church. In doing so, we will draw upon the great resources of Roman Catholic art, philosophy, theology, and the lives of the saints in order to grow in our understanding of Jesus Christ and to live out the life He calls us all to live.
The readings for this weekend teach us what faith looks like and how to respond to it.
In the Gospel today, we have the classic story of Jesus battling the temptations in the desert. How appropriate for us as we begin Lent.
In the Gospel, Jesus completes His Sermon on the Plain and teaches us about the importance of language
In this weekend’s Gospel, we hear the most difficult and annoying teaching in all of the New Testament.
All 3 Scripture readings show us how God breaks into our life as well as the proper response.
