Ave Maria!

Pope Pius XII, in his consecration of the whole world to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, referenced the Jewish people as at one time being the chosen people of God. Christ Himself said that He did not come to destroy the Law and the prophets, He came to fulfill them. So are the Jews still the chosen people of God? Can one still keep the Law and reject Christ at the same time? Listen as Fr. Elias reflects on today’s readings and on this vital question.

Homilies #42 – Friday Lenten Homily by Fr. Elias, F.I. (9min 30sec) >>> Play

Ave Maria!

Today’s Readings remind us of the hardness of heart that both the prophet Jeremiah and the Son of God faced in their earthly ministries. As is the case in our world today, the enemies of Christ and His prophet cloaked their hatred in intellectual arguments when the real issue was not intellectual but moral, i.e. their love of sin. Even miracles will be dismissed and ignored by those who hate God. Listen as Fr. Elias reflects on today’s readings and how it is possible for God to deliver His children from their enemies while at the same time allowing them to suffer death at their hands.

Ave Maria!

Who are the true children of God? One could approach this question by first asking, “Who are the true children of Abraham??? God made an everlasting contract with Abraham to make his descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky. So in the eyes of God, is it more important to be a blood-descendant of Abraham or to be a descendant of Abraham by faith? Today’s Readings marvelously explore this question. Listen now as Fr. Elias provides a brief yet pointed explanation of this crucial topic.

Clearing the Air #1 – Fr. Elias starts clearing the air… >>> Play
 

Ave Maria!

In this first episode of Clearing the Air, Fr. Elias proclaims the Good News that the air is being cleared of Satan’s smog by the Fresh Air of Christ and his Mother, Mary. This good news was first proclaimed in the Garden of Eden and then at Nazareth when the Archangel announced to Mary that she is to be the Mother of God. Listen to Father’s talk as he stresses the importance of uniting Mary with Christ in the announcing of the Good News as we celebrate the announcement of the good news of the start of Air Maria on the Feast of the Annunciation.

Homilies #40 – Wednesday Lenten Homily by Fr. Elias Mary, F.I. (7min) >>> Play
 

Ave Maria!

“If you remain in My word, you will truly be my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” Today’s readings reveal to us two key truths of the Faith: life with Christ brings freedom from the misery of sin, and following Christ means that you will suffer insults, derision, and even the threat of death. The more we are persecuted, the more our good God comforts and strengthens us, so don’t be afraid! Catholicism gives life to the soul and light and life to the world; secularism fills the soul with misery and covers the earth with darkness. Listen today to Fr. Elias’ exhortation to Catholics who must courageously battle this present-day culture of death.

CNS Plugs Schismatic Church in China

Tuesday, March 27th, 2007

Interesting how the Catholic News Service prints an article on the preparations of the Patriotic schismatic Church for the the 2008 Olympic games, quoting “bishops” and priests, and not once points out or even implies that this church is not in union with Rome. How much the underground and persecuted Catholics in China must suffer from the forgetfulness of their fellow Catholics.

To make the irony complete the piece is entitled Chinese Catholics begin plans for religious needs of Olympic athletes (emphasis mine).

Remember Cardinal Kung.

Ave Maria! Fra Joseph Mary gives his first show on apologetics with no apologies. This series will have a Marian emphasis and be geared for beginners, that is, the youth and young adults to help them learn to defend their faith. But with his clear and pleasing delivery, Fra Joseph should gather a large following from all ages and walks of life. In this episode Fra Joseph gives a quick explanation of the series, a definition of apologetics and then discusses how Charity and Humility needs to be combined with knowledge of doctrine in order for us to become effective apostles of the truth. Ave Maria!

Many of the Church Fathers believe that today’s feast of the Annunciation is also the actual day on which Our Lord was crucified, making His stay here on earth – from the womb of Our Mother to the cross – exactly 33 years.

Ave Maria!

Dale Alquist of the American Chesterton Society gives his recommendation for Air Maria. So if this man can do this much for us while he is so busy filming episodes of his own show Apostle of Common Sense at EWTN, editing his magazine the Gilbert Magazine, giving talks at major conferences and running his web site www.chesterton.org, then the least you can do is watch our shows and tell your friends about us. Thanks a million Dale!
