Feb 27 – Homily – Fr Matthias: Lenten Double Duty

Friday, February 27th, 2015
Click to Play

Homily #150227n ( 06min) Play – Father tells us that we have a “double duty” during Lent, doing penance for ourselves and for others. He tells us that many souls are damned because there was no one to pray and sacrifice for them, and because nobody corrected them when they were in error, in fact, there is often mutual bad example among Catholics which causes many souls to not even be faithful to the minimal obligations they have towards God and others. Let us this Lent be instruments of grace and conversion for others, and not instruments of perdition and sin.

Homily #150227b ( 09min) Play – Fr. Elias underscores that God is the just judge who is also merciful.

He did this this by taking upon Himself the punishment for our sins.
