Sermon titled "No Holy Trinity: No Truth, No Love, No Peace" given on Sunday May 31, 2015. Size: 8.5 MB; duration: 09:15. Theologically, it is a part of Trinitarian Theology that we cannot know the Father without the Son and the Holy Ghost. Technically, it is called innascibility, meaning that the Father is not born, not generated from another or does not process from another. This means the only way we can come to know the Father is through the Son, Who is eternally generated from Him, and from the Holy Ghost, Who proceeds from them both. Thus, it is not possible to have or know God as Father without the Son. This is because Truth in God is between the Father and the Son (the Word of God). What is more, the bond of Love between the Father and the Son is the Holy Ghost. What this means is simply this: if the mystery of the Holy Trinity is denied there will be no Truth and no love that make for authentic peace and concord among men. Instead we will get error, violence, fear, divorce, and perversity of all kinds.
Sermon titled "Two Kinds of Fire: Fire from Above" given on Sunday May 24, 2015. Size: 7 MB; duration: 20:27. Fire from below burns most especially in the minds of men, more precisely, in his imagination. This, in turn, inflames the passions and perverts the heart. Such men end up in a fantasy world, rejecting the created and established order of God. It seems they all hold degrees from the University of Gehenna in the valley of Hinnom... Fire from above, however, finds is home in the heart of man, inflaming it with God's love to fulfill His commandments, persevere in the doctrine of the apostles, engage in the Holy Mass, and say its prayers (Acts 2:41-42). The one embraces reality, the other seeks to fantasize... one looks up and the other down... O how important it is to know UP from DOWN!
Sermon titled "Two Kinds of Fire: Fire from Below" given on Sunday May 17, 2015. Size: 7.9 MB; duration: 23:01. There are two kinds of fire...there is the fire from above and the fire from below. Pentecost is about the fire from above (we will speak more about that next Sunday). The fire from below is about revolution... and its consequences. Dostoevsky described revolution as "fire in the minds of men." Revolutionary men go to university below ground, absorbing many fiery ideas of hell... that they in turn have spread abroad in our times... We need to build a fire wall to protect ourselves from these dangerous ideas. And this can only be done by putting on the mind of Christ, which requires faith and that we be thinking with ascent. The mind of Christ is found by studying our Catechism and knowing the lives of the Saints.
Sermon titled "Looking UP: There Are EYES in Heaven" given on Thursday May 14, 2015. Size: 7.4 MB; duration: 21:28. A continuation on the theme of the need of Holy Helpmates for the renewal of society. Here we reflect on how Our Lord established a connection between heaven and earth, setting up vertical link... a sort of eye contact. When we make this contact with Him and keep it, we will not easily sin and ultimately we will save our souls! But if the link is cut, we will fail and fall into all sorts of sins and problems. This link is most easily destroyed and obscured by way of violation of the 6th and 9th Commandments, most especially through the eyes... Those of fall into impurity stop praying! And then they start doubting...and it all goes down hill from there. Consecration to Our Lady, the Helpmate of helpmates, prevents this from happening.
Sermon titled "The Need for Holy Helpmates" given on Sunday May 10, 2015. Size: 6.8 MB; duration: 19:40.
Sermon titled "Catholic Sun Eclipsed: An Occult Moment" given on Sunday May 3, 2015. Size: 8 MB; duration: 08:41.
Sermon titled "Sloth: Escape From God, Pursuit of the World" given on Sunday April 26, 2015. Size: 3 MB; duration: 12:53. The vice of SLOTH is not just laziness but rather a certain spiritual cowardice motivated by a perverted sorrow. Slothful people are sorry about their spiritual state and find a distraction in something of the world... and end up whiling away the precious time give to them by God to save their souls. Let us always resist this vice! The saints show us how.
