Homily #150329n ( 19min) Play - Father compares the gospel from the blessing of the Palms to the Passion read during Mass, and observes that in less than a week, the people went from shouting "Hosanna" to "Crucify." The scandal of the Cross made them fall away. In this world, Our Lord reigns from the Cross, and if we are to follow Him, we must pick up our own crosses and be crucified with Him. Father presents the example of Bl. Jose Sanchez del Rio, a young boy who gave his life for "Christ the King" in Mexico less than 90 years ago. We must draw near the Cross, and be willing to swim against the current and resist the "Lord of this World." The only persons to remain faithful to Our Lord, are those who went with Our Lady, let us go to Her so as not to wimp out when we encounter the Cross.

    Blessed be Jesus and Mary!

    Great site, but I cannot enjoy it as I go. 🙁 The two RSS feeds you have are old/broken, since the last entry was from 2009. Can you fix it so more people can enjoy your homilies and conferences?

    In Jesus and Mary,
