At St. Brigids, we practice a “shared homily” or sermon.

The time of reflection is invited by the bell, leading into a period of silence and stillness. A designated preacher offers their prepared reflections on the week’s appointed readings from the Bible.

After another time of silence and stillness invited by the bell, members of the community are invited to help complete the homily by adding their own reflections. These sermon archives only reflect the jumping-off point for our shared homily, and don’t reflect the depth and breadth of reflection shared by our community.


Advent 3: Come Home

Today, as we await the coming of the Christ child this Advent season, I believe that vulnerable Christ child also awaits us. In his crying, I hear an invitation, and it sounds like the words: “come home”.
