Feb 25 – Homily – Fr John Joseph: Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand!

Homily #150225m ( 11min) Play – In today’s homily, Fr. John Joseph reminds us to humbly ask God for all things, for we cannot obtain the graces that we need for our salvation by our own doing. It is the Immaculate who obtains for us all graces, she who is the Mother of Christ therefore, Mediatrix of all grace. Through her hands God has chosen to bless us.  Let us repent as the people of Nineveh did, turning to God with a contrite heart, with great reverence and humility.
Ave Maria!

Feb 24 – Homily – Fr John Joseph: True prayer comes from the heart

Wednesday, February 25th, 2015

Homily #150224m ( 11min) Play – In today’s homily, Fr. John Joseph talks about the prayers we recite as catholics, such as the Our Father and the Hail Mary, which are incorporated into the Holy Rosary. Prayer is something that should come from the interior not the exterior. As we read in today’s gospel, Jesus tells us how we are to pray. Whatever we ask the Father in his name we will obtain. Let us not babble as the pagans do but let us approach God confidently trusting in His word and providence.
Ave Maria!

Homily #140302m ( 18min) Play – Pulling both from today’s Mass readings and from today’s Office of Readings (Job 1:1-22), Fr. John Joseph calls to mind that we are stewards in this world, and we need to use the things of this world for the greatest glory of God. Just like Job, we need to be detached from all things, and recognize that God has dominion over all things. With the approach of the Lenten Season, are we sufficiently prepared to detach ourselves from the world, and attach ourselves to the providence of God?
