Aug 17 – Homily – Fr Elias: Mary and Commitment to God
Homily #130817b ( 14min) Play - Fr. Elias on the need to make a commitment to God and reject all false gods as is laid out to the Israelites by Joshua in the first reading. Father relates this to our Baptismal vows and to reject the materialism and hedonism that is our false god today. He is also celebrating a votive Mass to Our Lady Mediatrix of all Graces and he explains her role enabling us along with Jesus her Redeemer Son to fulfill this duty to commit ourselves to God.
