Homilies

 

Fr. Rodney Kissinger, S.J. has been a Jesuit for over 75 years and a priest for over 64 years. His seasoned spirituality is the fruit of more than 60 years of making and giving the Spiritual Exercises in all of its formats to priests, religious and laity. It is presented not in the jargon of academia but in a language that everyone can understand. He is neither “old breed” nor “new breed,” he is just “half breed.” Having studied both the old theology and the new theology he is convinced that the continuity is so great that you cannot understand the new until you have mastered the old.

This week's featured reading is Fr. Rodney's Homily, Love or Perish

“God is love.” (1 John 4:16)

The essence of God is love: to love and be loved.

“God said, “Let us make man in our own image in the likeness of our selves.” (Gen.1:20) Thus man, made in the image of God, is created: to love; to love and be loved.

When you buy a new car you receive an owner’s manual which gives instructions to get the best use of the car. The following is the owner’s manual our Creator has given me to insure I get the most out of my life.

"You shall love the Lord, your God with all your heart, with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the greatest and the first commandment. The second is like it. You shall love your neighbor as yourself. The whole law and the prophets depend on these two commandments.” (Matt. 22:37-40)

“This is my commandment: love one another as I have loved you.” (Jo.13)

“Love and then do what you will.” (St. Augustine) Because if you love, you will do what is right. Justice is the foundation of love. Once you have fulfilled the demands of justice then you are in the field of love. Therefore if you love you will do justice, you will do what is right.
