Homily #121031b ( 10min) Play – Fr. Elias preaches on the morning of Halloween and explains how it is really All Hollows Eve, the day before All Hollows Day, or as we call it today All Saints Day, a solemnity and even a holy day of obligation. So it is a very Catholic celebration. He exhorts us to do our part, however small, to bring this aspect back, and since this day has become associated with doing evil then we should do some act of reparation.

Does Hell Exist?

Ave Maria!

From New Doctor of the Church: St. John of Avila

Monday, October 29th, 2012

Ave Maria Meditations

Those who follow diligently along the path of perfect virtue do not merely experience the joy of being liberated by Christ in the midst of the dangers presented to them. They also experience the joy of obtaining and possessing such blessings in their souls that they can say with much truth: “The kingdom of God is within you” (Lk 17: 21).

As Saint Paul says, this kingdom “consists” in having within oneself “justice, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit” (Rom 14: 17). Such persons as these are so enthusiastic about what is just and good; and they love it so much that, if the laws of virtue were to disappear from books, “they would be found written in their hearts” (cf. Rom 2: 15). This is not because they know them by memory but because the resolute love of their hearts is exactly what the law speaks from outside. Their will is already so transformed by love of the good, and through putting it into practice with such love and delight, that to follow their heart’s desire is to follow virtue and to flee from vice. They have become the living law and measure of human actions that Aristotle was aiming at.

From here there is born a peace and a joy so complete that no one can understand them except the one who tastes them. This is because, as Isaiah says, “the peace of such as these is like a river and like the waves of the ocean” (cf. Is 48: 18). Saint Paul says that “this peace of God surpasses all understanding” (Phil 4: 7), and Saint Peter says that “this joy is nspeakable” (cf. 1 Pt 1: 8). It is “hidden manna” that is given to the one who manfully overcomes himself. “No one can taste it except the one who receives it” (cf. Rv 2; 17).

A thought from Venerable Fulton Sheen

Thursday, October 25th, 2012

Ave Maria Meditations

“If he is what he claimed to be, a savior, a redeemer, then we have a virile Christ and a leader worth following in these terrible times; One who will step into the breach of death, crushing sin, gloom and despair; a leader to whom we can make totalitarian sacrifice without losing, but gaining freedom, and whom we can love even unto death.

“We need a Christ today who make cords and drive the buyers and the sellers from the temples; who will blast the unfruitful fig tree; who will talk of crosses and sacrifices and whose voice will be like the voice of the raging sea.

“But he will not allow us to pick and choose among his words, discarding the hard ones and accepting the ones that will please our fancy. We need a Christ who will restore moral indignation, Who will make us hate evil with a passionate intensity, and love goodness to a point where we can drink death like water.”
