Homily #151005bs ( 17min) Play –  Cardinal Burke gives the homily for the opening Mass for the 2015 Priests’ Retreat at the Mother of the Redeemer Retreat Center in Bloomington, IN.

This centers around the Mass which makes present the sacrifice of Calvary. Fulfilling this high calling requires great vigilance and effort, but mostly by asking Our Lord for the grace of ardent pastoral charity which is the measure of a priest’s spiritual life.

And what did the disciple do? he took Her into his home – not simply the stone edifice but that home that is the place of our heart – the very center of our personality.

Jan 17 – Homily – Fr. Ben Luedtke: Family as Small Church

Saturday, January 17th, 2015
Click to Play

Homily #150117bs ( 16min) Play – Fr. Ben Luedtke gives the second homily for the marriage retreat at the Mother of the Redeemer Retreat Center which is called “Till Death do us Part, the Church and Matrimony.” He talks about the family as a small Church that reflects love between God and His whole Church and the love between Christians and should be a shining light for the whole of society since the health of society is a direct reflection of the health of the families that make it up. This is especially appropriate for today because it is the 5th Anniversary of the consecration of our chapel here in Bloomington and the readings for the Mass of the Dedication reflect these same themes.
Ave Maria!
