Fr. Cassian Sama, O.P. gives the first of three talks on the Rosary at our day of Lenten Reflections on the Rosary at the Mother of the Redeemer Retreat Center in Bloomington, IN.  This talk is called “Redemptive Suffering and the Rosary” which is based on Our Lord’s words, “If you want to be my disciple, you must take up your cross and follow me.” These are hard words and in order to accept them we need to have a good prayer life, meditating on the life of Christ which is what the Rosary is about.

Fr. Elias gives the third talk for our 2014 Family Retreat at the Mother of the Redeemer Retreat Center in Bloomington, IN. This series of talks is called ”The Joy of the Gospel” based on Pope Francis’ Apostolic Letter. Here he talks on the need to have Christian joy at mass, both the priests and the laity, and how we should prepare for Mass. This is necessary because we have so many distractions in our modern, electronic world that can very much steal all our attention. As we prepare for the homily better (again, both priests and laity) we will get more from them.

Ave Maria!

Fr. Angelo Geiger gives the first talk for our retreat at the Mother of the Redeemer Retreat Center called “Apocalypse Now” which is on Revelation, the last and most mysterious book of the Bible. In this talk he covers the historical aspect  of the book.

Reality of persecution is a current concern and not something that we don’t have to wait for and this is reflected in our literature and movies both religious and secular. We should not look at this book as a survival guide for the end times at least not in the secular sense but rather a spiritual guide, a call to holiness that begins now.

  • Common Interpretations: historic, prophetic, or both
  • Should not lead to fear but should have us grow in holiness.
  • Liturgical overtones as a means for being prepared for difficult life
  • Need to avoid sensation
  • Nature of Crisis in the Bible
  • The presence Mary and the Cross
  • Salvation arises out of Crisis, the Cross
  • Over optimism and pessimism during a Crisis
  • Victory follows Crisis especially the Apocalypse
  • End of the Year of Faith, End of the Liturgical year
  • Jesus is Christ the King, Lord of History
