Homily #130619 ( 10min) Play - When St. Juliana Falconieri was dying, she could not eat so she requested the priest to spread a corporal on her chest and lay the Eucharistic host on it, which soon disappeared and she died. An image of a cross, just like the one on the host, was found on her chest. Father explains that as the host is changed into the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Christ, so was a sign given to show St. Juliana’s transformation of love into her Beloved, Jesus.

Jul 30 – Homily – Fr Benedict: Lectio Divina and the Magnificat

Monday, July 30th, 2012
Click to Play

Homily #120730m ( 18min) Play – Fr. Benedict draws from the readings for the day, showing that leaven that was mixed in with three measures of flour may be likened to Sacred Scripture. Mary shows how She had thoroughly interiorized the word of God in the Magnificat, which was the preparation for Her to conceive the Word of God made flesh. Through the practice of Lectio Divina, we may follow after Her lead in absorbing the word so that we may conceive the Word of God in our souls.
