Apr 22 – Homily – Fr Matthias: Facts and the Resurrection

Tuesday, April 22nd, 2014
Click to Play

Homily #140422n ( 07min) Play – Father Matthias comments on the saying, “Even if the bones of Jesus were found, I would still believe.” Father tells us that this is actually blasphemy and nonsense. Our Faith is based on the actual, historical facts of Jesus’ Life, Death, and Resurrection, everything depends on the Resurrection. Without it, our faith is in vain and Christianity is the greatest lie in history. Finally, Father asks us what it means to “Rise from the dead,” and what the consequences of Jesus’ Resurrection for us.

Christus Vincit, Christus Regnat, Christus Imperat

Monday, April 21st, 2014

Ave Maria Meditations

Christus vincit, regnat,  imperat; ab omni malo plemem suam defendat.

Christ conquers, He reigns, He commands. May He de­fend His people from all evil.

Pope Sixtus V had these words engraved on the obelisk which stands in the center of Saint Peter’s Square at Rome. These magnificent words are in the present tense, and not in the past, to indicate that Christ’s triumph is always actual, and that it is brought about in the Eucharist and by the Eucharist.

+++

CHRISTUS vincit. Christ conquers.

Our Lord has fought; He has won control of the field of battle, on which He has planted His flag and pitched His tent: the Sacred Host and the Eucharistic tabernacle. He conquered the Jew and his temple, and He has a tabernacle on Calvary where all the nations come to adore Him beneath the sacramental Species.  He conquered paganism and has chosen Rome, the city of the Caesars, for His capital.

He conquered the false wisdom of the sages; the divine Eucharist rose on the world and shed its: rays over the whole earth, darkness withdrew like the shades of night at the coming of day. The idols have been knocked down and the sacrifices abolished. Jesus Eucharistic is a conqueror Who never halts but ever marches onward; He wants to· subject the universe to His gentle sway.

Every time He takes possession of a country, He pitches therein His Eucharistic royal tent. The erection of a tabernacle is His official occupation of a country. In our own day He still goes out to uncivilized nations; and wherever the Eucharist is brought, the people are converted to Christianity. That is the secret of the triumph of our Catholic missionaries and of the failure of the Protestant preachers. In the latter case, man is battling alone, in the former, Jesus is battling, and He is sure to triumph. (more…)

Homily #140421 ( 06min) Play – If one’s will does not want to see the truth and the good, it’s not going to see it and will already be set on not accepting it. It is the intellect that should lead and guide the will, not the will that leads and guides the intellect.

Apr 20 – Homily – Fr Joachim: Hope and the Empty Tomb

Sunday, April 20th, 2014
Click to Play

Homily #140420n ( 14min) Play – Many fear death in today’s world, but, as Father reminds us, we need not fear death, but prepare for it, particularly by preparing for the Judgement we will all undergo after we die. Thankfully, as Father also reminds us, God desires to pour out His mercy on our sinful and broken world, and the primary place we receive this mercy is the confessional! It is there we are cleaned and made ready to meet God. We do have hope, because on Good Friday, it looked like sin and death had won, but on Easter morning, mercy triumphed over sin and the tomb of Jesus was empty.
