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

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.
