Aug 21 – Homily – Fr Elias: Restore All Things in Christ
Homily #130821b ( 14min) Play - Fr. Elias preaches on the life of Pope St. Pius X, pointing to his humility and poverty in his youth and how this remained a hallmark of his pontificate. He also addresses the fact hat he was a reformer of the Liturgy and liberalized the practices surrounding the Eucharist as a means of finally implementing the Council of Trent. This is in contrast to the popular conception in some agenda driven circles today that he is the icon of liturgical rigidity.
