Msgr. Joe's Homilies
(The lovely lady in the picture with me is my Mom, Terry, who passed away two months shy of her 101st birthday.
The picture was taken one month before her death at a Hospice Award Ceremony honoring her for 15,000 volunteer hours.)
These homilies are my gifts to you. Perhaps you might find them helpful in your ministry or in your own private reflections.
Thank you, Msgr. Joseph Pellegrino
