The Peace Of Christmas Comes From Justice And Truth – Homily by Archbishop William Goh (26 Dec 2019)

The peace that Christmas comes to bring, it is a peace that is based on truth. This is very much unlike the peace in the world. Nobody wants to speak the truth because if you speak the truth, you are unpopular. And that is why the unity of the world today is very fragile because… Read More »

Console My People, Console Them – Homily by Archbishop William Goh (10 Dec 2019)

We all need to be consoled. And the reason why we are sad, the reason why we are not happy in life is simply because we are just suffering the punishment for our sins. God does not punish us. It’s our sins that punish us. How does God console us? How does God really help… Read More »

Building Our Hope On Christ As The Everlasting Rock – Homily by Archbishop William Goh (05 Dec 2019)

In the world that we are living in, this is a very difficult world, a very confused world. A world today where there are so many uncertainties. A world that is so divided with so many different viewpoints on every issue, that somehow we are not too sure of where we stand with regards to… Read More »

The Seven Deadly Sins

Christianity has, traditionally, spoken a lot about sinners. In the fourth century, the Church identified ‘seven deadly sins’: failings of character that were to be particularly condemned and avoided by all righteous people. They were; Pride (being snobbish and boastful) Envy, Wrath (getting very angry), Gluttony (eating too much), Lust (wanting to sleep around), Sloth… Read More »

Christ The Hope Of Our Salvation – Homily by Archbishop William Goh (04 Dec 2019)

For those of us who are limping in life, those who are crippled by our past, those of us who are blinded because we are looking at life at a different perspective, as a wrong perspective, then Jesus is there to enlighten us, to open our eyes and to heal us. If you want to… Read More »

Rebuild My Church, Restore My People – Homily by Archbishop William Goh (03 Dec 2019)

We are what we are today because the Lord has blessed us. And therefore, it would not be right if we just take care of our own selves. This question of narrow-mindedness of just thinking of ourselves will not do justice to the work of mission. We cannot be missionaries unless we have a deep… Read More »

The Passing World – Homily by Archbishop William Goh (26 Nov 2019)

We have only one humanity. That’s why the Church is catholic. The Church is universal. The best way to take care of ourselves is always to take care of others. No matter what we have, no matter how great we are, no matter what position we have in life, we will have to leave them… Read More »

The Writing On The Wall For Relativism – Homily by Archbishop William Goh (27 Nov 2019)

When we are powerful, when we hold high offices, when we have made a name for ourselves, when we think we have plenty of money, we become very arrogant. We think so highly of ourselves because we have made it. And we lose respect for God, for the sacred. Because we think that we have… Read More »
