Fr. Bryan gave this homily on the 1st Sunday of Summer at St. Thomas Chaldean Catholic Church. He preached about the 3 signs on someone who is growing in humility.
Matthew 11 – Jesus says “Learn from me; for I am gentle and humble of heart.” Humility is “the readiness to abase oneself, to lower oneself and serve the brothers and sisters" The motivation of True Humility is LOVE “12 Then he said to the host who invited him, “When you hold a lunch or a dinner, do not invite your friends or your brothers or your relatives or your wealthy neighbors, in case they may invite you back and you have repayment. 13 Rather, when you hold a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind; 14 blessed indeed will you be because of their inability to repay you.” When you give alms, do not blow a trumpet before you, as the hypocrites[b] do in the synagogues and in the streets to win the praise of others. Amen, I say to you, they have received their reward. Humility in Marriage Fr. Cantalamessa said “I believe that God invented humility for the salvation of marriages.” … “To fall in love with another person – when it is genuine love – is the most radical act of humility!” Humility and the Revival of the Church Humility “gives the power back to God!” It’s a recognition of the TRUTH that without Him, we can do NOTHING! Pentecost… who made that happen? Simply the POWER OF GOD. Sure, the disciples were open and ready… but God comes. “Power descended from on high, and nothing on earth can stop it”

Fr. Patrick Setto - 6th Sunday of the Apostles 2022 by Chaldean Diocese
The Eucharist is “the source and summit of the Christian life.” The Eucharist is the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus The Eucharist IS Jesus! Divine Mercy Prayer Eternal Father, I OFFER YOU the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity, of Your Dearly Beloved Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world. “The cup of blessing that we bless, is it not a participation in the blood of Christ? The bread that we break, is it not a participation in the body of Christ? 17 Because the loaf of bread is one, we, though many, are one body,” 23 [k]For I received from the Lord what I also handed on to you, that the Lord Jesus, on the night he was handed over, took bread, 24 and, after he had given thanks, broke it and said, “This is my body that is for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” 25 In the same way also the cup, after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me. 14 My beloved, avoid idolatry. 10 On a Sabbath Jesus was teaching in one of the synagogues, 11 and a woman was there who had been crippled by a spirit for eighteen years. She was bent over and could not straighten up at all. 12 When Jesus saw her, he called her forward and said to her, “Woman, you are set free from your infirmity.” 13 Then he put his hands on her, and immediately she straightened up and praised God. You come to Mass – you receive Healing Ask the Lord in this Mass where you need healing… and have faith and hope in His Love and Desire to heal.
