Homilies

 

Fr. Rodney Kissinger, S.J. has been a Jesuit for over 71 years and a priest for over 60 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 from Fr. Rodney's Homily Examination of Conscience

MY RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD: Am I convinced that God loves me unconditionally? Am I grateful for His gifts? Do I praise Him for them? Is the overall thrust of my life toward God an His kingdom? Do I express my love for God in prayer, attendance at Mass and the reception of the Sacraments? Do I try to grow in the knowledge, love and imitation of Jesus? Am I sensitive and responsive to the inspirations of the Holy Spirit? Am I guilty of human respect, peer pressure? Do I reverence the name of God? Do I curse, blaspheme or swear falsely?

MY RELATIONSHIP WITH MY NEIGHBOR: Love of the neighbor begins in the home in the family. What is my relationship with my parents, brothers and sisters, spouse and children? Am I faithful to my marriage vows? Am I guilty of fornication or adultery? Do I grant others the right to be themselves? Do I communicate openly or resort to the silent treatment? Do I express my love and affection? How much time do I spend with my children? Do I give them good example? Am I too permissive or too demanding? Do I exercise authority firmly but with love and reason?

Have I shown prejudice or discrimination to those outside my family? Do I treat others as I would have them treat me? Do I forgive those who offend me or do I harbor resentments and desire revenge? Do I accept and affirm others, or do I judge, criticize and condemn them? Have I injured anyone or ruined their reputation by rash judgments, detraction or calumny? Am I just to my employer or employees? CLICK HERE for the entire chapter.
