EWTN Mass January 8, 2007: Jesus' Baptism and Ours
Fr. Frank answers the question of why Jesus was baptized even though he was incapable of sin. Fr. Frank then reminds us of what our baptism does for us and how it changes us in this world and in the world to come.
EWTN Mass January 18, 2007: Christian Unity, Civil Rights and Abortion
This homily was given by Fr. Frank Pavone during the week of Prayer for Christian Unity, right after the birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr., and right before the commemoration of Roe vs. Wade. Fr. Frank shows how these three observances are deeply linked and apply throughout the year.
EWTN Mass February 22, 2009: Behold I am Doing Something New
Fr. Frank echoes the urgent call of Christ to repentance and conversion. It is not too late for anyone to come back to the Church. The Lord says he remembers our sins no more! Yet some day, the door of opportunity will close. If there is someone in your life who needs to hear the invitation of God to come back to Him, don’t be afraid to invite that person to Church and to confession.
EWTN Mass February 23, 2009: The Wisdom of God
Jesus Christ is the Word and Wisdom of God. Through Him all things were made, and He holds the universe together. Therefore, faith and reason are not contradictory to one another. This message should encourage every Christian to grow in knowledge and to value the discipline of study.
EWTN Mass February 24, 2009: Everyone Can Serve
Greatness lies in service, in giving ourselves for others. One does not have to have a degree to serve, but only a heart open to others. In this spirit, all oppression ends. The teaching documents of our bishops contain a wealth of insight into what it means to serve. Let’s be sure to read them.
EWTN Mass February 26, 2009: Choose Life
God urges his people to “Choose Life!” because prosperity never comes from choosing death. Fr. Frank shows how this applies to the abortion issue and gives a stirring challenge to those who call themselves “pro-choice.” If you are not active in the pro-life movement, now is the time to become involved!
EWTN Mass March 2, 2009: Sins of Omission
“You shall not stand by idly when your neighbor’s life is at stake.” Fr. Frank explains that being “pro-choice” is the same as turning one’s back on the child who is aborted. But God’s word commands us to intervene to protect that child. The time is now to get involved in saving the lives of the unborn and all the vulnerable.
EWTN Mass March 3, 2009: We Dare to say "Our Father"
The liturgy says “we dare to say…Our Father.” This prayer teaches us that we have a new identity as sons and daughters of God, and this identity has profound implications. Based on this message, let’s echo the Church’s invitation to all people to become God’s sons and daughters by baptism.
EWTN Mass March 5, 2009: I'm Mad and I'm Not Going to Take it Anymore!
Fr. Frank explores where we find the strength to take the risks necessary to do unto others what we would have them do unto us – especially when it comes to protecting someone’s life. Anger is not always something bad, but that we should be rightly angry at injustice, and use that energy to work for good.
EWTN Mass December 3, 2010: The Tyrant Will Be No More
Fr. Frank discusses how the right to life has to be secured on an international level, and how various international declarations and treaties point in that direction. These efforts help bring about what the prophets foretold when they spoke of God’s protection for his people.
EWTN Mass December 4, 2010: We Are People of the New Evangelization
The New Evangelization is the Church’s effort to announce the Gospel in places where it has already been received, but where it has been forgotten or diluted. A key aspect of New Evangelization is defending and promoting the sanctity of life and the rights of the unborn.
