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 Scriptures for this weekend speak volumes about the ability to grow our faith and have fulfillment in life.
Today, we hear the classic story of Bartimaeus. This story isn’t necessarily a story of healing as it is of conversion.
In today’s Gospel, Jesus teaches us that Discipleship includes service to God and others, but also suffering for others.
The Scriptures for this weekend teach us how Marriage is a great gift given to us by God.
In this week’s Gospel, Jesus teaches us how radical sin can be in our live and the radical response required on our part.
