Michael’s Homily as he describes?the medal’s?origins and just two out of the vast multitude of miracles associated with it.

Just as footsteps in the sand?are an image of the person who walked past and give evidence of his passing?so, too, the created world?tells us something of God.? This is the theme that Fr. Michael takes up from?the day’s readings from the book of Wisdom. There are many ways of knowing. Just as Christ knew things in more than one way, as God and as Human, so we are to know God in his creation as well as through Revelation. Listen as Fr. Michael interlinks knowledge and faith.

News on Homilies:?

New Look to our homily videos with a new introduction and finale showing some of the interior of the Chapel and featuring Gregorian Chant from the Friars. Still needs some work but here it goes. The homilies for Monday Nov 12th and Wednesday the 14th were lost due to technical difficulties. Sorry about that! We have over 200 homilies on line. Deo Gratias

Fr. Michael Gauvreau gives the homily on St. Albert the Great’s feast day. He focuses on how St. Albert (the teacher of St. Thomas Aquinas) taught that knowledge of this world can help us to grow closer to God and should not lead to intellectual pride. He points out that St. Albert showed his humility by accepting very gracefully the loss of his great intellectual capabilities?in his old age.

Ave Maria!

Today we celebrate the great feast of Saint Michael the Archangel, Saint Gabriel the Archangel, and Saint Raphael the Archangel.

Now one of the things that was important to the early Church fathers is the teaching on the holy angels and at one point each angel had their own designated day for a feast day but then they decided to move both Saint Gabriel and Saint Raphael to September 29th which was originally Saint Michaels feast day.

Ave Maria!

With today’s Gospel, we celebrate the feast of Saint Joseph Cupertino, who is a Franciscan saint of the 17th century. He is one of those great saints in the Franciscan Order. One of those great saints of the Catholic Church, whom we never tire of hearing the stories that revolve around his life.

True stories that seem like they are inexhaustible in many of the events that took place in his lifetime.

Ave Maria!
