Homily #140310 ( 13min) Play – “Do not stand idle when your neighbor’s life is at stake” (Lev 19:15). Our most innocent and defenseless neighbors are the unborn. 2700 infants are being put to death every day in our country. A civil and just society would place laws to punish abortion, not make it legal and encourage it. In the pro-life movement there is always a little something that any Christian can do. “What you did not do for one of these least ones, you did not do for me” (Matt 25:45).

Homily #140309 ( 22min) Play – The loss of the sense of sin today is so great that there is little acknowledgment of our offenses against God.

Feb 22 – Homily – Fr Ignatius: Feast of The Chair of St Peter.

Saturday, February 22nd, 2014
Click to Play

Homily #140222 ( 00min) Play The chair is a symbol of authority. Peter answers with the truth about Jesus. Not with his own human reasoning but by the grace and enlightenment of Gods grace. What is loosed on earth with be loosed in heaven, what is bound on earth will be bound in heaven. Who teaches the truth with God’s authority? Jesus said “I will build my church”, the keys of which are given to Peter. We need to follow the one who has the keys to the kingdom. There is one shepherd and there is one flock. The principle for unity in the life of the body of the Church is found in her invisible head which is Christ acting through the visible head which is Peter.
