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 is just because he is God and takes account of everything that we have done and thus knows what we deserve, but is merciful in that He gives us what we do not deserve. He did this this by taking upon Himself the punishment for our sins.

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.

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

Wednesday, February 25th, 2015
Click to Play

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.

Homily #150225 ( 07min) Play –  In todays Gospel, Our Lord upbraids that evil generation because so much had been given to them in the words and deeds of the Savior.  The same can be said of unfaithful Christians, who have been given the fullness of the truth and of the means of salvation, and even more so of priests and religious.
