Ave Maria!

Cardinal Burke gives the the 7th talk at the Priest’s Retreat at at the Mother of the Redeemer Retreat Center in Bloomington, IN.

Card. Burke gives his reflection on the devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and how it can foster and make fruitful a priestly vocation. He starts with his own experience growing up in his parents house.

  • Helps inspire to embrace a vocation
    • Teaches richness of the faith
    • Children are impressed with the dedication of priests, Sacred Heart helps them to see this.
    • Devotion helps focus on the essence of the Church and so fosters vocations to the priesthood
    • Sacred Heart helps see a priest as an identity rather than a profession
  • Helps live the vocation once embraced (more…)

  • Mass should be the center of a priest’s day
  • Need Eucharistic Devotion to help keep this Eucharistic perspective

Cardinal Burke gives the the 4th talk at the Priest’s Retreat at the Mother of the Redeemer Retreat Center in Bloomington, IN. He reflects on the lives of saintly priest, namely St. John Vianney, Bl. Miguel Pro, St. Damien of Molokai and St. Maximilian Kolbe, and how they give a great example to priests in our challenging times. St John Vianney says we need to open up our hearts to the Sacred heart of Jesus revealed in the Holy Eucharist in order to be spiritual fathers.

Hermenuetics of rupture

  • 1968 issues in the Church all things old were considered out of place. Shift to all things new and some of these things are problems, including undue familiarity that is meant to be a means to connect with people but blurs the idea of father figure that reflects our relationship with God. Some of this is a false humility where priests are acting as if they are just like anyone else when they are not.
  • The source and ultimate meaning of the Priests life and ministry in the holy sacrifice of Mass where the Sacred Heart is pierced for the salvation of souls.
  • Bearing the sufferings of the ministry that are becoming more frequent in our increasingly hostile, secular world is born by uniting ourselves to the sufferings of the Sacred Heart surrounded by the crown of thorns. (more…)

Advent Thoughts

Tuesday, December 21st, 2010

Ave Maria Meditations

  The infant Christ is the whole Christ. Christ was not more God, more Christ, more man, on the Cross than He was in His Mother’s womb. His first tear, His first smile, His first breath, His first pulsation in the womb of His Mother, could have redeemed the world, in fact, Christ chose the life of growth and work and suffering, and the death on the Cross which we know; but by His own choice all this was to depend on a human being giving herself to Him in His infancy, giving her own humanity to the actual making of that infant’s humanity and giving Him her life in which to rest.If every person in whom Christ lives at all, in whom He is an infant – which means anyone whose soul is alive at all- surrendered themselves to Him, resting in Him so that He might rest in them, in each one of them the world’s redemption would begin as it began in Mary, the Mother of God. Christ is formed in us, and we are formed into Christ, when we rest in Him and He rests in us. 

During Advent Christ rested in Mary – still, silent, helpless, and utterly dependent. The Creator trusted Himself to His creature. He trusted to her the expression of His love, the expression of God’s love for the world and of His love of His Father, just as the work of His love would be trusted to us, in His life in us. 

He was dumb; her voice was His voice.

He was still; her footsteps were His journeys.

He was blind; her eyes were His seeing.

His hands were folded; her hands did the work of His hands.  

His life was her life; His heartbeat was the beating of her heart.
