Prayer to Jesus Living in Mary

Jesus living in Mary

O Jesus living in Mary:

Come and live in Thy servants,

In the spirit of Thy holiness,

In the fullness of Thy power,

In Thy Spirit, for the glory of the Father.

Sorry no homily from Griswold

[more technical difficulties]

As we start the season of Advent and so a new liturgical year Fr. Ignatius explains how the yearly cycle of seasons is a reflection of heavenly routines. But, if things seem to be a bit routine down here, don’t worry, in Heaven all things will be eternally new.

Face of Pro-Life #74 – Bill O’Brien and Corinn Dahm ( 59min) >>> Play

Ave Maria!

Bill O’Brien, President CT Right to Life, discusses with hostess Corinn Dahm the health care bill on this show recorded on live television. He covers the problems with the bill including the fact that there is no explicit denial of abortion funding which is needed since the Hyde Amendment does not cover this bill. He also mentions how there are no conscience clauses in the bill so medical professionals who morally object will find it hard to opt out. And then there are Catholic Hospitals…

YouTube – Hymn by Chaldean Catholic Priest-Martyr in Iraq

Friday, November 27th, 2009

Ave Maria!

YouTube – Hymn by Chaldean Catholic Priest-Martyr in Iraq.

A viewer sent this to me from his YouTube  site, beautiful. Let us pray for our Iraqi brethren.

Hear the voice of a Christian Martyr singing a hymn in Arabic to the Blessed Mother, while watching a slideshow of his funeral mass. Hear the angelic voice of Father Ragheed Ganni, a 35 year old Chaldean Catholic Priest killed on Sunday June 3rd, 2007 with three of his deacons right after celebrating mass at Holy Spirit Chaldean Catholic Church in Mosul, Iraq. The car of Father Ragheed and the three deacons was stopped by terrorists shortly after leaving the church. They were forced to get down from the car and asked to declare their conversion to Islam. When the four martyrs refused they were brutally gunned down with machine guns. Lord, protect all the innocent people of Iraq and all those trying to defend them. Jesus we trust in you and we are sustained by the prayers of your most holy mother to whom you never refuse a request. We pray for the repentance and conversion of Father Ragheed’s killers and all other terrorists. May she who gave birth to us at the foot of the cross beg you for mercy. source: www.ankawa.com

The hymn translated in English is:

We honor you with hymns O Mother of God, you are the pride of the whole earth, because the Word of God whom the Father sent, chose to take His human body from you. The generations call you blessed, all nations and people’s honor you and ask for mercy by your prayers. You are a generous earth in which plants of joy always grow.

Nov 27 – Homily – Fr John Joseph: The Miraculous Medal

Friday, November 27th, 2009
Click to Play

Homily #091127m ( 09min) Play – Today we celebrate the feast of the Miraculous Medal (1830).  Originally called the “Medal of the Immaculate Conception”, this sacramental comes directly from the Most Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God and our Mother. It is not only highly venerated and promoted by the Franciscans of the Immaculate, but has become an integral part of their habit, devoutly worn over their hearts.

Father John Joseph encourages us to wear the Miraculous Medal, wear it worthily, and to live our lives showing that we want to be children of our Immaculate Mother, united with Her will and the will of Her Son.

Ave Maria! Mass readings – 1st Reading:  Rev. 12:1, 5, 14a, 15-17 – Gospel: Jn 2:1-11

Nov 26 – Homily – Fr John Joseph: St. Leonard of Port Maurice

Click to Play

Homily #091126m ( 09min) PlaySt. Leonard of Port Maurice (1676-1751). Joining a branch of the Franciscans of the Strict Observance, St. Leonard desired to be sent on mission to China but was held back by sickness. He instead began preaching missions in Italy and attracted huge crowds in Rome. This great preacher worked for devotion to the Blessed Sacrament, Sacred Heart, Immaculate Conception, and the Stations of the Cross, of which he erected almost six hundred throughout the lands.

Father explains how, following the example of our patron saint of parish missions, St. Leonard, we should encourage missions at our parish as these can be times of very special graces..

Nov 25 – Homily – Fr Johannes: St. Humilis of Bisignano

Thursday, November 26th, 2009
Click to Play

Homily #091125m ( 12min) PlaySt. Humilis of Bisignano, O.Min. (1582-1637). From his youth he had the gift of continuous ecstasy, to such an extent that he was called “the ecstatic Friar”. He was also blessed with extraordinary gifts of reading hearts, prophecy, miracles and, especially, of infused knowledge. Although he was without education, he responded to questions on Sacred Scripture and on any point whatsoever of Catholic doctrine with a precision that astounded theologians. He enjoyed the confidence of Popes Gregory XV and Urban VIII, who called him to Rome and, through a rigorous examination, made use of his prayers and advice. He was beatified in 1882 and canonized in 2002.

“Humilis” is Latin for “humble”.  Father explains that humility is the key to obtaining true understanding, because God pours out blessings upon the humble and resists the proud..
