Sermon titled "The Power of Meditating on the Passion" given on Sunday March 1, 2015. Size: 7.8 MB; duration: 22:37. In order to conquer the world, the flesh and the devil, meditation on the Passion of Our Lord and Savior is essential. That is one of the lessons from the Transfiguration because that is precisely what Our Lord, Moses and Elias were doing, whereas the three apostles were heavy with sleep. In hoc signo vinces: In this sign you shall conquer!
Sermon titled "The Policemen of God" given on Sunday February 22, 2015. Size: 7.4 MB; duration: 21:39. The saints have noted at times how the demons act as God's policemen and His jailors. They watch us and wait for us to break the law of God. Or they call in to check their database on our previous infractions to see if we are willing to commit them again. Or they start to follow us, to fill us with fear, hoping that we will break the law so that they can stop us and search us over in the hopes of eventually arresting us for their jail. Yet, for all this, they have to have permission from the divine courtroom, which often times is granted to some degree so that our virtue will be tested, so that we will be that much more prepared for our judgment, so that others will see our Christian virtue and convert. The devil, however, gets his permissions most readily by way of INVITATION on our part, through some use of magic or the occult, or by way of ATTRACTION, that is, by our sins...as wicked acts attract wicked companions...like seeks like. In this sermon your will find three important lessons on how to keep this policeman off your back.
Sermon titled "Fasting to Conquer Self-Preservation" given on Wednesday February 18, 2015. Size: 1.7 MB; duration: 04:56.
Sermon titled "Tale of Two Sparrows" given on Sunday February 15, 2015. Size: 6.7 MB; duration: 19:39. Continuing on the theme of the contest inside of us between the old man Adam and the New Adam, in this sermon we see how His Majesty's saying of the two sparrows is very significant in this struggle (a saying rooted in Leviticus 14). If we embrace the means He gives us, most readily practiced during Lent, we will be able to put down the old Adam little by little while at the same time practicing for heaven. Then the little sparrow will take flight to its heaven like a little bird freed from the bonds of this world.
Sermon titled "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde: The New Adam vs. the Old Man Adam" given on Sunday February 8, 2015. Size: 6.5 MB; duration: 19:02.
Sermon titled "Sister Smile and the Devastated Vineyard" given on Sunday February 1, 2015. Size: 5.6 MB; duration: 16:19.
Sermon titled "Saint Athanasius and Why Atheism is on the Rise" given on Sunday January 25, 2015. Size: 7.9 MB; duration: 23:09. In his profound work on the Incarnation, Saint Athanasius explains that there are at least three ways man can come to know God without fail: (i) looking up at God's ordered and harmonious Creation; (ii) seeking the guidance and example of holy men; (iii) studying God's Divine Revelation. All of these have been displaced and replaced by imaginings of modern man and the crafty devices of the devils. Now we explain away the Cosmos with pseudo-science, making it all, more or less, due to chance. Our holy men are being suppressed and sidelined while the rational and worldly-minded men are elevated to demigod status. Divine Revelation is gutted of its meaning or dismissed altogether being replaced by modern man's writings, constitutions, charters and declarations of the rights of man. As a result, a vacuum is produced causing atheism to rise, while occultism and Islamism fill in the empty places. How important it is, then, for us to LOOK UP and see the harmony of God's Creation (to study Creation, as this is one of the first things Moses did with the Israelites in coming out of Egypt in writing the Pentateuch), to strive to be holy and follow good and faithful priests, and finally to study our Holy Catholic Faith. In this way, with the atheist given the chance to once again know God, atheism will not be allowed to grow in us and around us!
Sermon titled "Chair of Saint Peter: Chair of True Unity" given on Sunday January 18, 2015. Size: 7.5 MB; duration: 21:59. Today is the feast of the Chair of Saint Peter in Rome. Thus, this whole week became a time of prayer for Unity... namely, that all men would convert and become truly united to the Holy Roman Catholic Church, outside of which there is no salvation. Thus, all week long many prayers were offered up for the conversion of non-Catholics. Sadly, now we are just trying to get along by appreciating what little truth this or that religion holds on to... seeking to co-exist or hope for some future convergence. For our part, let us obey the request of Our Lady, given at Lourdes and Fatima, namely to pray for the conversion of sinners.
