Ave Maria!

Fiddleback chasubles and Franciscan sandals come together in the extraordinary form of the Mass (Traditional Latin Mass) at Our Lady of Guadalupe Friary of the Franciscans of the Immaculate. The video is put to beautiful music from the Franciscan Sisters of the Immaculate, our sister order. The music was recorded in Italy and is a fine testimony to the high quality of their music program which, combined with the friar’s, is playing a major part in spearheading the liturgical music reform in Italy.

Roving Reporter #19 – Gianna Jessen – Abortion Survivor Extraordinaire (08min) >>> Play

Ave Maria!

Where the heck has our Roving Reporter been of late?

Well, I don’t know, but this was an interview he conducted earlier this year at UConn with an amazing woman – a woman that has such a strong will to live that her mother’s attempted saline injection abortion failed – and then to rub more salt into the wound, the abortionist was forced to sign her birth certificate!

This woman has an incredible will-power and despite having cerebral palsy, as a result of the attempted abortion, she has run the Boston Marathon and even the London Marathon! I’m sure we will be hearing more of her in the future.

Read this heartwarming story as well.

Video – News #1 – Religious Liberty Under Fire

Air Maria News #1 – Brian Brown defends traditional marriage >>> Play

Ave Maria!

This is a special AIRMARIA report on the status of religious liberty in America, relative to the ongoing push on the part of the homosexual lobby for full same-sex marriage in Connecticut. Last year same-sex civil unions were legalized by the state assembly with an amendment defining marriage as a union of one man and one woman.

In Connecticut, same-sex couples already have all the rights and benefits of married people, just not the name “marriage.” This year they are back for what they call “equality,” but in reality the legalization of same-sex marriage in Connecticut will only codify the defense of traditional marriage as a form of discrimination.

Witness the erosion of your religious liberty! This assault will not stop at the state line. The same-sex marriage lobby wishes to challenge the federal Defense of Marriage Act. This affects you, no matter where you live in America.

On March 26, Brian Brown, Executive director of the Family Institute of Connecticut, testified before the judiciary committee of the state legislature in regard to raised House Bill 7395: An Act Concerning Marriage Equality. He was grilled on the question of commitment to civil rights and his religious convictions. Brian defended both traditional marriage and religious liberty in an eloquent and courageous way. He continues to be attacked on the FIC blog. In this video Brian also tells us what we can do to protect religious liberty.

Don’t underestimate this attack on religious liberty. This has implications for us all. Bill Donohue of the Catholic League has picked up on the threat and is bringing it to national attention. This video is a good synthesis of what happened last Monday.

The dedication of the site to St. Clare, Patroness of TV and in honor of Patrick Wroe, son of David Wroe who’s help has been indispensable for Air Maria.

Ave Maria!

The reward for Christ’s humility is His glorification and ours as well. Humility is the cornerstone of our faith. Pride, vanity, curiosity – all the vices that make up a successful worldly career are the gifts of Satan and the fruits of original sin. Possessing many college degrees in not the formula for sanctity. Fr. Peter once again speaks with authority on the harmony of humility and dignity in the lives of Christ, Our Lady, and in our own lives.

Face of Pro-life #3 – Fr. Angelo and Corinn Dahn on the state of Pro-Life>>> Play

Ave Maria!

The swearing in of a Democratically-controlled Congress in 2006 was a setback for the Culture of Life. Today’s public assault against the virtue of chastity and the sanctity of family life began in 1965 with the Supreme Court case of Griswold vs. Connecticut that legalized contraception. Ever since then, emotions have trumped right reason in the public discourse. Without a total conversion of our own hearts, others will never see the light of truth, and the slaughter of innocents, the trivializing of sexuality, and the emptiness of our cultural experience will continue. In this program, Fr. Angelo and Corinn touch on all the consequences of electing a party whose foundation rests on the principles of the Culture of Death.

Ave Maria!

Fr. Peter Mary Fehlner discusses with hostess Corinn Dahm how we need Mary’s help in the pro-life movement. The more pro-Marian we are the more pro-purity we are and, then, the more pro-life we are. They also discuss the main source of impurity in our culture is contraception, and this leads to abortion, the culture of death. Holy Mary, Queen of America, pray for us.

Homily #7 – Fr. Angelo preaches a pro-life homily in the Shrine to the Immaculate Conception on the day of the march. >>> Play

Ave Maria!

Fr. Angelo preaches the homily in the Chapel of Our Lady of the Missions at the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in DC on the morning of the Pro-life March. He focuses on the need to repent by expounding the message of Our Lady of America, an approved apparition of Our Lady in the 1950’s to Sr. Mary Ephrem of the Precious Blood Sisters in New Regal, OH, which says if America decides to be a promoter of morality, we will be greatly blessed, but if we fail in this most important mission then we will see disaster. A good first step, then, is to set a good example by putting an end to abortion in our own country. During the march the friars and tertiaries handed out thousands of prayer cards and medals of Our Lady of the Americas.

Ave Maria!

Fr. Angelo contends that The Nativity Story by New Line Cinema is a good Protestant film which was the intent of the film. His only question is why so many well educated Catholic movie reviewers are calling it a good *Catholic* film.
