Jun 18 – Homily – Fr. William Casey: God’s Mercy Beyond the Year of Mercy

Views 3600



Fr. William Casey gives the second homily for our retreat June 17 - 19 at the Mother of the Redeemer Retreat Center. The retreat is called "In Our Lord's own Words: The Divine Mercy" based on the words of Our Lord to St. Faustina that Father compiled from her Diary and recorded on a set of CDs he recently published. He reflects on Pope Benedict's comment that 2017 will be a big year for the Church, which happens to be at the end of the Year of Mercy declared by Pope Francis. Father points out how the one month of October of 2017 will be the 100th anniversary of the Russian Rev and of Fatima, and the 500th of the Protestant Reformation. He gives a summary of the difficult times we are in and then gives many quotes from the diary of St. Faustina, Bishop Dashe of Nigeria, Pope St. Pius X and Sr. Lucia to get a heavenly perspective on our problems and to see that the answer is to ask for God's mercy, especially by praying the Rosary.

    Another 100th anniversary in October 2017 is the starting of the Militia of the Immaculate by St. Maximilian Kolbe one of the patron saints of our order, the Franciscans of the Immaculate. He started in response to the Free Masons holding an anti-catholic march outside the Vatican. Interestingly the Masons also have a significant date in 1717 (although not in October) when they started their first Grand Lodge. This was in London. Also the Franciscans split into the Observants and the Conventuals in 1517 same year as the Church split into Catholics and Protestants. Given that the Franciscan order’s mission is to “Rebuild my Church”, Christ’s words to St. Francis, then the Franciscans seem to be in a pivotal role in in events to come. http://www.saintmaximiliankolbe.com/
