Christ must increase and we must decrease

On Saturday, January 11, nearly 1,000 catechists and parishioners turned out for our 25th annual ministry conference held at the American Bank Center in Corpus Christi. The conference offered a number of workshops to help those in ministry in carrying out their work in the New Evangelization.

I celebrated the opening Mass and focused my homily on the Holy Father’s Apostolic Exhortation EVANGELII GAUDIUM, ON THE PROCLAMATION OF THE GOSPEL IN TODAY’S WORLD. Pope Francis warns us that we too often “indulge in endless fantasies and we lose contact with the real lives and difficulties of our people.” Following is a podcast of my homily in which I call for: “Christ to increase, and  we must decrease.”
