Jul 31 – Homily – Fr Matthias: Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam

Thursday, July 31st, 2014
Click to Play

Homily #140731n ( 10min) Play – Father Mattias introduces us to St. Ignatius, his conversion, and his vocation. Father reflects that there are two different things our will can choose, to reject evil and choose good, or to chose what is better and sacrifice what is merely good. A primary example of this is the religious life. Finally, Father remarks on a passage from the Spiritual Exercises where St. Ignatius describes three types of men. Let us all strive to the the third type, and seek only “Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam” (For the Greater Glory of God).
Ave Maria!

Jul 30 – Homily – Fr Maximilian W: To Get Everything, Sacrifice Everything Else

Wednesday, July 30th, 2014
Click to Play

Homily #140730n ( 03min) Play – Father comments on the parables of today’s Gospel reading, reminding that (1) the “Kingdom of Heaven” is worth the sacrifice of everything else to acquire it, and (2) it does require the sacrifice of everything else. He connects this with Our Lady’s request at Fatima, “Pray and Make Sacrifices” and reminds us that if we refuse to make this sacrifice, we are blocking the free action of God in our lives and in the whole world.

Jul 29 – Homily – Fr Matthias: The Active Life and Contemplation

Tuesday, July 29th, 2014
Click to Play

Homily #140729n ( 07min) Play – Father points out that today’s saint, Martha, is seen as an image of the active life, and as the Gospel shows us, the contemplative life, exemplified in her sister Mary, is higher than the active life, and even in the active life, contemplation is necessary. To conclude, Father reads a commentary on this verse (the Navarre Bible) which shows how we may infuse the spirit of prayer into all our daily actions, especially the most mundane.

Jul 27 – Homily – Fr Matthias: Islam and Providence

Sunday, July 27th, 2014
Click to Play

Homily #140727n ( 18min) Play – Father reminds us that “that all things work for good for those who love God,” and that this presupposes Faith in Providence (a.k.a. God’s loving plan for everything) and Love of God. As an example, Father turns our attention to the tribulation Iraqi Christians are currently undergoing and gives a short commentary on Islam and how we all can defend against it by living lives strongly founded on Christian Faith. For an example of strong and courageous faith, we can take the example of our Iraqi brethren and, in particular, the example of Patriarch Sako in his exhortation to the Christians in Iraq. Father asks us to examine ourselves, if we aren’t ready to practice our faith in peace, how will we be ready when persecution comes to us?
