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.
In today’s Gospel, Jesus teaches us the virtue that we need to practice in order to live as His Disciples.
Today’s Gospel is a wonderful summary of our faith.
In the readings for this weekend we hear about the power of hearing the Word of God.
Jesus teaches something that all together radical and difficult for some to accept in the Gospel for this weekend. To read this week’s readings, go to: usccb.org
In the Gospel, Jesus finishes His teaching on the Eucharist. It is interesting to contrast those that accept it and those that reject it.
The 1st reading and the Gospel help us understand the Eucharist in a powerful way.
