Fr. Joe said at a funeral these comments after the scripture
Lamentation 3: 17-26
I have been deprived of peace,
I have forgotten what happiness is
and thought, 'My lasting hope
in Yahweh is lost.'
Bring to mind my misery and anguish;
it is wormwood and gall!
My heart dwells on this continually
and sinks within me.
This is what I shall keep in mind
and so regain some hope:
Surely Yahweh's mercies are not over,
his deeds of faithful love not exhausted;
very morning they are renewed;
great is his faithfulness!
'Yahweh is all I have,' I say to myself,
'and so I shall put my hope in him.'
Yahweh is good to those who trust him,
to all who search for him.
It is good to wait in silence for Yahweh to save.
Lamentation — they lament the loss of their nation
because of the Babylonian exile — lament is human grief
Philippians 4: 4-7
Always be joyful, then, in the Lord; I repeat, be joyful. Let your good sense be obvious to everybody. The Lord is near. Never worry about anything; but tell God all your desires of every kind in prayer and petition shot through with gratitude, and the peace of God which is beyond our understanding will guard your hearts and your thoughts in Christ Jesus.
Second Reading — counter balances
Rejoice in the Lord always — Paul was in prison
He was suffering
This world is not our end
John 14: 1-6
Do not let your hearts be troubled. You trust in God, trust also in me.
In my Father’s house
there are many places to live in;
otherwise I would have told you.
I am going now to prepare a place for you,
and after I have gone
and prepared you a place,
I shall return to take you to myself,
so that you may be with me
where I am.
You know the way
to the place where I am going.
Thomas said, ‘Lord, we do not know where you are going, so how can we know the way?’ Jesus said:
I am the Way; I am Truth and Life.
No one can come to the Father
except through me.
Gospel is from the last supper —
He knew the Apostles would be devastated
when He left and died and rose
He went to get a place ready for us —
We gather in prayer and faith
The Lord is present with us now —
There is a special presence when 2 or 3
gather in His name and
especially in the Mass —
where Jesus gives us His Body and Blood
We will all have our turn—
Pray we can see beyond the things of this
know there is something beyond even
the good things of this world —
The joy of eternity
The joy with God — Amen

16th Sunday in Ordinary TimeGenesis 18: 20-32
Then Yahweh said, ‘The outcry against Sodom and Gomorrah is so great and their sin is so grave, that I shall go down and see whether or not their actions are at all as the outcry reaching me would suggest. Then I shall know.’
While the men left there and went to Sodom, Yahweh remained in Abraham’s presence. Abraham stepped forward and said, ‘Will you really destroy the upright with the guilty? Suppose there are fifty upright people in the city. Will you really destroy it? Will you not spare the place for the sake of the fifty upright in it? Do not think of doing such a thing: to put the upright to death with the guilty, so that upright and guilty fare alike! Is the judge of the whole world not to act justly?’ Yahweh replied, ‘If I find fifty upright people in the city of Sodom, I will spare the whole place because of them.’
Abraham spoke up and said, ‘It is presumptuous of me to speak to the Lord, I who am dust and ashes: Suppose the fifty upright were five short? Would you destroy the whole city because of five?’ ‘No,’ he replied, ‘I shall not destroy it if I find forty–five there.’ Abraham persisted and said, ‘Suppose there are forty to be found there?’ ‘I shall not do it,’ he replied, ‘for the sake of the forty.’
Abraham said, ‘I hope the Lord will not be angry if I go on: Suppose there are only thirty to be found there?’ ‘I shall not do it,’ he replied, ‘if I find thirty there.’ He said, ‘It is presumptuous of me to speak to the Lord: Suppose there are only twenty there?’ ‘I shall not destroy it,’ he replied, ‘for the sake of the twenty.’ He said, ‘I trust my Lord will not be angry if I speak once more: perhaps there will only be ten.’ ‘I shall not destroy it,’ he replied, ‘for the sake of the ten.’
Colossians 2: 12-14
You have been buried with him by your baptism; by which, too, you have been raised up with him through your belief in the power of God who raised him from the dead. You were dead, because you were sinners and uncircumcised in body: he has brought you to life with him, he has forgiven us every one of our sins.
He has wiped out the record of our debt to the Law, which stood against us; he has destroyed it by nailing it to the cross;
Luke 11: 1-13
Now it happened that he was in a certain place praying, and when he had finished, one of his disciples said, ‘Lord, teach us to pray, as John taught his disciples.’ He said to them, ‘When you pray, this is what to say:
Father, may your name be held holy,
your kingdom come;
give us each day our daily bread,
and forgive us our sins,
for we ourselves forgive each one
who is in debt to us.
And do not put us to the test.’
He also said to them, ‘Suppose one of you has a friend and goes to him in the middle of the night to say, "My friend, lend me three loaves, because a friend of mine on his travels has just arrived at my house and I have nothing to offer him;" and the man answers from inside the house, "Do not bother me. The door is bolted now, and my children are with me in bed; I cannot get up to give it to you." I tell you, if the man does not get up and give it to him for friendship’s sake, persistence will make him get up and give his friend all he wants.
‘So I say to you: Ask, and it will be given to you; search, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; everyone who searches finds; everyone who knocks will have the door opened. What father among you, if his son asked for a fish, would hand him a snake? Or if he asked for an egg, hand him a scorpion? If you then, evil as you are, know how to give your children what is good, how much more will the heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!’

INTRODUCTION: One of the themes of today’s readings is hospitality. Jesus, and most likely his disciples, share the hospitality of Martha and Mary, his friends in Bethany. Our first reading is about Abraham who welcomes three strangers with a lavish banquet. The Bible said he was 100 years old, but he was still pretty energetic as we hear. He doesn’t realize it at the time that it is God whom he is entertaining. God must have enjoyed the feast, for God tells him that his lifelong desire that he and his wife, Sarah, would have a son would finally be fulfilled.
HOMILY: There was a man who went to see his doctor and he had a carrot sticking out of one ear and a piece of celery sticking our of the other, with a couple of grape stuck up his nose. He complained to the doctor he was not feeling well. The doctor said “It’s obvious, that you’re not eating properly!”
I hope you will pardon me for emphasizing the obvious, but everybody enjoys eating. Most of us sit down to eat several times a day and probably snack occasionally in-between. Jesus was away from his home territory of Galilee and was near Jerusalem when he visited Martha and Mary in Bethany. He and most likely his disciples probably hadn’t had a good meal for a while and Martha was ready to put out a really fine feast for them all. But Jesus knew that in addition to feeding our bodies, there are other needs that we human beings have. After all, he is the one who responded to the temptations of the devil in the desert, after forty days of fasting, that we do not live by bread alone! Our hearts need to be fed with love and our spirits need to be fed with wisdom and truth. And Martha’s sister, Mary, was needing to be fed with the wisdom and truth and love that Jesus spoke. When Jesus said “Mary has chosen the better part,” was he saying that sitting and praying or reading the Bible is more important than having a good meal? I don’t think so. We need both. It wouldn’t be a bad idea though if sometimes we ate a little less and prayed a little more. We seldom get so busy that we forget to eat in the course of a day. How often do we forget to spend a little while with God during the course of a day or even during the course of a week. When Jesus said “Mary has chosen the better part,” was he saying taking time to pray is better than feeding a hungry person? I don’t think Jesus is saying that either. We need to do both. I think that’s why St. Luke put this story right after the parable of the Good Samaritan. St. Luke is telling us we need balance. We need to do good things for others, but we need to take time just to sit at our Lord’s feet and communicate with him. I’m sure most of us remember the passage from the Book of Qoheleth: “For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; etc.” Perhaps what Jesus was saying to Martha when he said “Mary has chosen the better part,” he was saying this is a golden opportunity; here is the Son of God coming to visit and you’re worried about chopping up the parsley; or perhaps he was saying “you’re trying to put out an eight course meal, Martha, and we would be happy with just a sandwich,” or perhaps he was saying “maybe we ought to think about feeding the spirit before feeding our faces;” or perhaps he was saying “maybe we need to spend a little time enjoying each other’s company before we get all uptight about dinner.”
I remember some years ago when I would visit home, I just wanted to spend a little time sitting and talking and my mother was always trying to serve something to eat, even if I had just had supper. Frustrating! Now she is in a nursing home and when I visit, she’s not trying to feed me. We both just enjoy the visit. On the other hand, I have heard from so many wives how their husbands never have time to sit down and talk. They’re always busy doing something or else they’re half asleep in front of the TV. They complain “I feel like I’m all alone.” In too many families today, the family members are too busy to listen to one another, to talk to one another, to feed one another emotionally. We do not live by bread alone.
Jesus came to Martha and Mary’s house and was given hospitality. Jesus did not belittle what Martha was doing. She was trying to see that Jesus and his apostles were fed. I’m sure he appreciated it. But he wanted to feed them too, with a food that would not just satisfy them for a few hours but for eternity. Didn’t he tell us in another place: “Do not labor for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to eternal life, which the Son of man will give to you?” (Jn. 6,27) As we come here today we are giving God our worship, our time, our love, our thanks, our prayer and our praise. Our being here is a gift to our God who created us and to our Savior who died for us. But we’re not just giving. We sit at his feet, listening to his word, being fed with his wisdom and truth. We receive him in Communion, we open our hearts to his love and presence. We pause for moments of silence so he can speak to us. Prayer is not just doing all the talking. It is also listening. Everything has its appointed time. Now, on this Lord’s day, is the appointed time to be like Mary in today’s gospel and communicate with our Lord.

I have Cycle B & C of your publication Guiding Light. What must I do to assure my receiving Cycle A? I do want to complete my series. I took full retirement when I turned 80 five years ago. What I missed mostly was preaching homilies after all those years since 1950 working in parishes. Now instead of giving homilies I read them.
133. 5/2010 - Priest - PA
Thank you very much and God bless you in your mission for Christ and His Church with appreciation.

Thank you for the "Guiding Light" (The Word Alive in Our Hearts). I am grateful for your thoughtfulness and generosity. I do enjoy reading Father Joe's homilies and quite often get inspired for my own — although not as inspirational as his. Thanks again for all you do. May God continue to bless your work.

Please accept my sincere thanks for the excellent homily book by your brothers, Jr. Joseph Robinson. It does help me. Thank you for your love for priests and priesthood. The book and your letter are wonderful gestures. Thank you for all you do for us, the priests. Your love, concern and prayers have tonic effect on us. It is a great feeling when we know we have somebody who cares. People like you make us feel that after all we are not orphans (in human terms).
125. 4/12/2010 - Priest - CT
I enclose a donation for your ministry. Thank you for the book of homilies by Fr. Robinson. They have helped me in preparing my own homilies. Would you kindly send me Cycles A & B. Also please send me "Spiritual Newsletter" (compilation of 9 newsletters) and also "Ecce Fides" and please bill me at the above address.
124. 4/5/2010 - Priest - CA
Thank you! I would like to thank you personally because praying for the priesthood of your brothers, you are praying for the sole priesthood of Christ, which we all by our baptism participate. These times where we ministerial priests are persecuted for our good actions, justice, and caring for the poor have more enemies than friends. You become like an oasis in the middle of a desert. Thank you for praying for priests. Thank you for sharing this wonderful book. I read few pages and liked, I am sure, I will use it.
123. 4/2010 - Priest - PA
Thank you so much for you kindness, thoughtfulness and generosity. I greatly appreciate your loving gesture, fervent faith and sharing of your gifts. May the risen Christ continue to strengthen your faith and bless all of you. Happy Easter!

106. 3/10/2010 - Priest - CA
Thank you and all in our special ministry. Please also, thank your brother Joe. His book comes at an opportune time. Frankly, I'm in a "rut". After 52 years I am "running on empty" for new homiletic ideas. While in Kenya and Tanzania for 30 years, no problem! Now, in retirement, "filling in" at local parishes, I need good reference for ideas- not the homily itself but the ideas it generates for my own. Joe's book really is a "Guiding Light".
105. 3/10/2010 - Priest - CA
Thank you for the book of homilies by your brother. I am sure I will find them most helpful. It is wonderful you have twenty-hour Adoration. Please pray for me.
104. 3/9/2010 - Msgr. - CA
I want to thank you on behalf of myself and Father who also works with me for the recent gifts of homilies. I have enjoyed the stories of Fr. Robinson. Thanks of thinking of us.

99. 3/7/2010 – Priest - IL

94. 3/1/2010 – Priest – NY
Recently I received your book of homilies by Fr. Joe Robinson, and trusting it will be helpful for preparing our Sunday Celebrations, enclosed is a check. It was my understand that Shepherds of Christ Ministries was no longer in existence, especially since my classmate of High School and College in Cincinnati, Fr. Ed Carter had died. Peace, Prayers & Progress in Jesus. By the way, my 1st prayer every morning is the Morning Offering.
93. 3/1/2010 – Priest – MA
Thank you for sending me a copy of Fr. Robinson’s collection of homilies. I have already found it helpful in preaching about the Transfiguration this past Sunday. It’s a fine resource. Thanks, too, for your prayers.

I like the book of homilies.
91. 2/25/2010 – Priest – IL
Thank you for sending me the book Guiding Light, Feed My Soul. I shall treasure this as I used to receive newsletters from Father Carter for many years.

May God be with you.

77. 1/28/2010 – Priest – NY
I received the book “Guiding Light Feed My Soul” – Thank you. They are indeed beautiful homilies that Fr. Joe Robinson gave in Cycle C Book. I have no idea how much it cost the ministry to print and send this book out to all the priests, but I can imagine that it was a great amount of money. Enclosed please find my gift to help to defray the expenses involved. It isn’t much I know, but maybe it will help some, o.k.? Once again THANK YOU and Good luck in your ministries in getting the word of Jesus out to others.
76. 1/26/2010 – Priest – NY

I do not know when you mailed the book with/of your brother’s homilies – but I received it just today. Thank you, I shall refer to the homilies in my preparations. Thank you for your prayers. I am sure you are obtaining many graces, conversions and returns to faith as a result of perpetual adoration.
71. 1/16/2010 – Priest – NY

64. 1/2010 – Priest – NY
Thank you for the C cycle copy of “Guiding Light”. I’m enjoying it in my prayer life … and preparing homilies. I would like to buy the A & B cycles. Send me the bill and mailing cost. Thanks again.
63. 1/14/2010 – Priest – Florida
My twin brother and I are priests in Florida and I’m sure I speak for many priests throughout the country in expressing appreciation to Father Joseph. His Christmas homily – the voices of all within and around the crèche, was especially beautiful – and I didn’t want the year to get too for away from us without expressing gratitude to you and to Father Joseph – what a fantastic Ministry. Please know that you and your brother are in the prayers of many of us.
62. 1/10/2010 – Priest - Florida
I was so happy and overjoyed to receive this past Advent the best Christmas present – one that I had wished for – in your brother’s Cycle c homilies – Guiding Light. The book cover is beautiful and when Cycle B ended I said to myself I wish I had the new cycle, but alas, I didn’t know where I was going to get it…Then like an answer to prayer, it was in the mail! I was already missing his homilies at the beginning of December until the book arrived. I love the cover and I love the work you are doing. In the Year of the Priesthood this is certainly a welcome gift and presentation to the priests. And for me the best Christmas gift. And it came free!! The cover is great, the print is nice and big and easy to read, and the thoughts, of course, are great. One week Fr. Robinson talked about how long he was in a parish and changes, and I could use that talk myself. So the Scripture, reflections, homilies, and personal antidotes are perfect. With your generous gift you have certainly made it a blessed and Merry Christmas for me. Thank you for your prayers before the Blessed Christmas and be assured of our prayers every week when we pull out “Guiding Light – Feed my Soul” for encouraging words for our parishioners here.
61. 1/7/2010 – Priest – Florida
Thank you for mailing me free copy of Homilies by Fr. Joe Robinson. I enjoy reading his homilies. In the past you sent me that of another Cycle. Happy New Year to all in Shepherds of Christ Ministries.
60. 1/7/2010 – Msgr. – Ohio
Many thanks for the gift of your brother’s book of homilies. I am 90, in a nursing home, sometimes with two Masses a day, and I need some ideas for homilies.
59. 1/5/2010 – Priest – Ohio.
I am delighted to have your greetings at Christmas, with all those dear names personally signed. Thank you. The photo of Fr. Carter with John and Rita is good.
58. 12/29/2009 – Priest – Kentucky
Thanks a lot for your lovely greetings. I appreciate your love and prayers. Wish you a hope-filled 2010 – with New Year blessings!
57. 12/28/2009 – Priest – Indiana
A word of gratitude for your prayers, ministry, and copy of “Guiding Light”! God bless your dedicated work in His vineyard!
56. 12/27/2009 – Priest – Kentucky
Thank you for the gift of the book of homilies and especially all you do spiritually for the Church and for priests. We need more emphasis on the spiritual aspects of the priesthood, along with all the other things priests are asked to do. I do Parish Missions and realize many Catholic’s seek a deeper spiritual life along with their lived “human” life.
55. 12/24/2009 – Priest – Indiana
Thank you for sharing Fr. Joseph Robinson’s homilies with me. May God bless you and your apostolate for us priests!
54. 12/23/2009 - Priest - Kentucky
Just a small devotion to let you know I enjoy reading Fr. Joe's homilies. God bless you and your ministry in 2010.
53. 12/23/2009 – Priest – Indiana
Thank you for the book “Guiding Light” for the Cycle C Readings. May God bless all of you with the best of health and peace throughout the coming New Year!
52. 12/2009 – Priest – Ohio
Thanks for the book. Enclosed please find check.
51. 12/2009 – Priest – Ohio
Merry Christmas and I blessed New Year. Thanks for your prayers for priests. You also will be remembered in my prayers.
50. 12/22/09 – Priest – Ohio
Thank you for the book gift of “Guiding Light”. Much appreciated for enriched preaching. Enclosed is a little token gift. Many thanks! Christmas cheer and blessings!
49. 12/20/2009 - Priest - Ohio
Thank you for sending Fr. Robinson's book of homilies for Cycle C. Actually you had given me a copy earlier, and now I can share this treasure with another priest. And a treasure it is, both the introduction and homily text. I sincerely hope the holiest Birthday anniversary will be a religious experience for you and all of Shepherds of Christ.
48. 12/2009 - Priest - Florida
Thank you for Guiding Light by your brother, Fr. Joseph Robinson. I greatly appreciate this gift and I thank you very much. This "Feed My Soul" is based on the Sunday Gospels of Year C — Do you still have spare copies for Years A and B? What do they sell for? Thank You. Enjoy the Christmas Season.
47. 2009 – Priest - Ohio
Please accept this donation to help in some small way the apostolate you have so devotedly engaged in for the glory of God and the spiritual growth of his people.
46. 12/20/2009 – Priest - Ohio
Greetings from Ohio. And Merry Christmas! Thanks for the book of Fr. Joe's homilies. I've used it already today in my own homily. I remember you from the Athenaeum Chorale.
45. 2009 – Priest - Ohio
Enclosed, please find a check for the book entitled, “Guiding Light: Feed My Soul”, by Fr. Joe Robinson. I enjoy his homiletic reflections very much. They are very helpful and spiritually uplifting. Thank you for sending the book so quickly. I received it in just a few days following my order, just in time for the First Sunday of Advent. I would be very interested in receiving the Cycle A edition when it is in print. Thanks again for all your help.
44. 2009 – Priest – Ohio
Thank you so much for your gift book, “Guiding Light”. I’ve read a number of homilies, and they are really good. However, the book has already led me into sin! You see, I’ve “stolen” some of Fr. Robinson’s stories and incorporate them into my own homilies! Many blessings, and I will certainly be purchasing items from you.
43. 2009 – Priest – Ohio
Thank you for remembering me and for your kindness. Be assured of continual prayers for you and your family.
42. 12/2009 – Priest – Missouri
Thank you so much for the “Cycle C” readings. I always read the “B” ones – great insights and ideas. Wishing all of you the Blessings of the Christmas Season. Hope 2010 will be a time of great joy in your ministry.
41. 12/2009 – Priest – Ohio
Thank you for the complimentary copy of Guiding Light Feed My Soul – the homilies of Father Joe. I am grateful for your kindness. May God continue to bless you and your ministry in the New Year.
40.12/2009 – Priest – Ohio

I will share these with the priests and the faithful of the Diocese. May God shower his blessings upon you this holy Season of Advent and Christmas!
32. 12/4/2009 - Cardinal - Vatican

Please accept my appreciation for your letter of November 13, current. My commitment to remember in prayer the efforts of the Shepherds to support priestly formation and lifestyle. Your practice of perpetual adoration before the Blessed Sacrament is a wonderful expression of the kind of entrustment to the Lord of those many needs which priesthood in the contemporary Church continues to experience. Before the same Altar, kindly remember me and those associated with me in the service.
