"...May we be free to live in the Spirit ... to be accepting of a new kind of experience with God, a new kind of experience with people God put in our lives, a new way of living out our faith that might call for a change and a deeper experience than we could have ever imagined. ... But first it takes letting go of that old way of being." (from Fr. Daniel's homily)

"Today, in the Gospel we have John the Baptist and the big thing John the Baptist does is he points out who God is. He points out who Jesus is with his famous words 'Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world.' John the Baptist always says his life is about pointing toward Jesus. And that is who we are supposed to be in this world as well. ... When we are at our best people can't help but see us pointing to Jesus." (from Fr. Daniel's homily)

"As I was reflecting on the Gospel and the readings this morning, one of the things I noticed is really how we affect life and how our words are so powerful and in Jesus's words as one who spoke with authority. ... how serious our words are and the decisions we make in terms of affecting the future of people's lives."

"As you hear in today's first reading from John, since God is of love, those who do not love, do not know God. ... It is hard for someone who has no experience of love in their life to understand God, who is love. Or, when they've experienced love in their life that is conditional or that was troubling or experienced lots of betrayal in their life then those become huge stumbling blocks for their experience of God." (from Fr. Daniel's homily)
