Homily #151011b ( 07min) Play – Fr. Joseph McShane on the Gospel story of the rich young man who was willing to do anything for God except give up his many possessions. This makes it clear that he loved earthly treasures more than God, that creatures had become his God. We have been called by God in various ways. Let us be ready to respond to whatever this may be so that we may find happiness both here and in the eternal life to come.

Sep 27 – Homily – Fr Joseph M.: Consequences of Our Actions

Sunday, September 27th, 2015
Click to Play

Homily #150927b ( 09min) Play – Fr. Joseph preaches on the Gospel of today that there are consequences to our actions, leading to eternal condemnation, or blessedness. These include even the small actions and it is worth making large sacrifices to avoid sin at all costs since nothing in this world can give us true happiness and is not worth eternal loss. We must regain the fear of Hell and pray that others do so as well. We must realize that we are in spiritual warfare and ask help from God and pray to Mary for this.
