Ave Maria!

Fr. Cassian Sama, O.P. gives the first of three talks on the Rosary at our day of Lenten Reflections on the Rosary at the Mother of the Redeemer Retreat Center in Bloomington, IN.  This talk is called “Redemptive Suffering and the Rosary” which is based on Our Lord’s words, “If you want to be my disciple, you must take up your cross and follow me.” These are hard words and in order to accept them we need to have a good prayer life, meditating on the life of Christ which is what the Rosary is about.

Apr 13 – Homily – Fr Maximilian W: The Cup of Suffering

Sunday, April 13th, 2014
Click to Play

Homily #140413n ( 15min) Play – Having read the Passion according to Matthew, Fr. Maximilian asks us what caused Jesus to suffer so much in the Garden? He tells us that it was because He saw the sins and rejection mankind would respond to His love with. This started at the Last Supper with the rejection by Judas, and continues today in our sins. However, Jesus didn’t falter under this heavy load, but turned what seemed like defeat into victory. Father encourages us to never stop reflecting on this, even doing so every day. Will we only acknowledge Jesus as “Rabbi” like Judas did, or will we call Him “Lord” and accept Him into our lives, allowing His victory over sin on the Cross to be repeated again in us.

The Mercy of God to a Penitent

Friday, April 11th, 2014

Ave Maria Meditations

from St. Maximus the Confessor

healingGod’s will is to save us, and nothing pleases him more than our coming back to him with true repen­tance. The heralds of truth and the ministers of divine grace have told us this from the beginning, repeating it in every age. Indeed, God’s desire for our salvation is the primary and preeminent sign of his infinite good­ness. It was precisely in order to show that there is nothing closer to God’s heart that the divine Word of God the Father, with untold condescension, lived among us in the flesh, and did, suffered, and said all that was necessary to reconcile us to God the Father, when we were at enmity with him, and to restore us to the life of blessedness from which we had been exiled.

He healed our physical infirmities by miracles; he freed us from our sins, many and grievous as they were, by suf­fering and dying, taking them upon himself as if he were answerable for them, sinless though he was. He also taught us in many different ways that we should wish to imitate him by our own kindness and genuine love for one another.

So it was that Christ proclaimed that he had come to call sinners to repentance, not the righteous, and that it was not the healthy who required a doctor, but the sick. He declared that he had come to look for the sheep that was lost, and that it was to the lost sheep of the house of Israel that he had been sent. Speaking more obscurely in the parable of the silver coin, he tells us ‘that the purpose of his coming was to reclaim the royal image, which had become coated with the filth of sin. You can be sure that there is joy in heaven, he said, over one sinner who repents. (more…)

Apr 10 – Homily – Fr Matthias: Fulfillment of the Old Covenant

Homily #140410n ( 12min) Play – Father Matthias comments on the Old and New Covenant, asking whether we must accept Christ in order to be saved. He answers, yes, we must, for Christ fulfilled the Old Covenant, not replacing, but fulfilling, and therefore the Old Covenant is no longer able to save. Finally, he presents two versions of the Good Friday prayer for the Jews, comments on them, and encourages us to join our prayers to those of the Church for the conversion of the Jews.
