Aug 31 – Homily – Fr Angelo: Get Behind Me Satan!

Sunday, August 31st, 2008
Click to Play

Homily #080831 ( 25min) Play – This is where the rubber meets the road! Its not enough to be orthodox, its not enough to believe in the Eucharist, its not enough to receive Communion on the knees and on the tongue, its not enough to be at a traditional liturgy – we must live what we celebrate. Much better to go to a simple rubric correct but simple Novus Ordo Mass than to go to the highest most solemn traditional Mass and miss this point! This is where the rubber meets the road! If we don’t carry our Cross then we don’t have an authentic spiritual life – no matter what else we do in our Holy Religion.

Mary Vitamin – Mary as the New Ark of the Covenant

Sunday, August 31st, 2008

Mary Vitamin

Topic: Mary as the New Ark of the Covenant

Quote:
?The Virgin?s singular and magnificence triumph, her innocence her exceptional purity and sanctity, her immunity from every stain of sin, and finally her inexpressible richness and greatness in every grace, her virtues, and celestial privileges the holy Fathers contemplated: in the ark of Noah, which built by command of God remained completely secure and intact in the midst of great disaster?? – Pope Pius IX (more…)

Aug 31 – St Maximilian Daily – The Value of a Soul

Sunday, August 31st, 2008

Ave Maria!August’s Theme: The Missions

“Even if in the land of the missions one were to convert only a single youth, it is, however, still worth it to undertake all of the hardships and to endure all of the sacrifices suffered and still much, much more, because here one is speaking of a soul.” (cf. SK #1266)

The Dry Wood – Hilda Nicolosi – Paring Down the Human Race: In Vitro Breeding – Part 1/3

Saturday, August 30th, 2008

IVF Part 1: “We are the offspring of God..” (Acts: 17:29)

Fyodor Dostoevsky, as I recall, once wrote people are secretly gladdened at news of tragedies which take large numbers of human lives.? Such a thought would be shocking to contemplate were it not for the almost universal, preoccupation by population planners in our world to systematically control the numbers being born, by any method of prevention, no matter how repugnant.? The success of this objective has been positively mind-numbing. In the United States alone we are responsible for over 50 million, surgically dispatched babies.? (This does not include countless babies erased by various methods of contraception.)? To pro-life people such statistics are detestable — bald, horrifying abortion numbers–numbers ever so carefully tallied. To us, each singular abortion is a tragedy. ?This mental framework emanates from a society that boasts of what civilized progress we have made over earlier generations.? (The dimensions of birth reduction, worldwide, are factually reported in Mark Steyn’s excellent book, “America Alone.”) (more…)

Thoughts on the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass

Some thoughts on the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass:
?

The Holy Mass as renewal of the Covenant.

?

‘Behold, the days are coming?, says the Lord, ‘when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and the house of Judah, not like the covenant which I made with their fathers when I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt.? During the Last Supper, Jesus anticipated what shortly thereafter he was to accomplish in his death. He showed his disciples what he was anxious to do, what he was soon to carry out ?the sacrifice of his Body and Blood for everyone. The Last Supper is an anti?cipation of the sacrifice of the Cross. When, twenty-seven years later, Saint Paul would quote these words of Jesus in the First Letter to the Corinthians: ?This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me?.

Aug 30 – St Maximilian Daily – Be On The Offensive To Conquer Hearts

Saturday, August 30th, 2008

Ave Maria!August’s Theme: The Missions

“The knights of the Immaculate don’t limit themselves to defending the faith, but move themselves on the attack, on the offensive, to conquer the enemy strongholds; they advance, however, cultivating in theirs hearts a love without limits towards their neighbor, the same love of the Immaculate, even if one’s neighbor is not only a foreigner, of different race or color, but even an open enemy of religion, of the Immaculate, of God.” (cf. SK #1277)

Homily #080829 ( 19min) Play – St. John the Baptist gave up his life in defense of the indissolubility of marriage. A lustful society is a violent society. Lust leads to death – just take a look at our present day society.

Ave Maria!August’s Theme: The Missions

“Brothers, you still have much work ahead of you to provide all those belonging to the lands of the great Asia the possibility to know God by means of the Immaculate and to bring Heaven closer to men. Be, therefore, great lovers of the heavenly homeland and of its Emperor and aspire to draw with you many, many souls to the Immaculate and, through her, to God.” (cf. SK #758)

Answered prayer: The Powerful Tears of a Mother

Wednesday, August 27th, 2008

St. Monica (August 27th) and St. Augustine (August 28th)

?

The great bishop of Milan, St. Ambrose, knowing of her prayers and tears for her son, told St.Monica that “it is impossible that the son of so many tears should perish.

Bishop Ambrose of Milan, was right. At the age of 35, Monica’s son, Augustine, became a Christian and was baptized, along with his son, Adeodatus, by Ambrose. A few months later, on the way home to Hippo with Augustine and Adeodatus, Monica fell ill and died.

Monica could not have known that her prayers and devotion would affect not only the life of her son but also the course of history. Her concern was that her son believe “the truth which is in Jesus.”

This devotion to the spiritual welfare of her son is why Monica is regarded as the model for all Christian mothers.

When death was approaching and seeing her son?s grief, St. Monica told him, ?Bury my body wherever you will; let not care of it cause you any concern. ONE THING ONLY I ASK OF YOU: THAT YOU REMEMBER ME AT THE ALTAR OF THE LORD WHEREVER YOU MAY BE.?
