Sermon for the Sunday Within the Octave of the Nativity – December 31, 2017 by Monsignor Patrick Perez

Written on January 7, 2018 at 6:21 pm, by

    Monsignor began the sermon by reciting the Hail Mary.   In today’s gospel we read, “And Simeon blessed them and said to Mary, His mother, Behold, the Child” et cetera. There’s a French spiritual writer from the 1700’s I like to read for sermons who says, “because Simeon blessed them, today you talk […]

Sermon for the Second Sunday of Advent – December 10, 2017 by Msgr. Patrick Perez

Written on December 14, 2017 at 4:17 pm, by

  Monsignor began the sermon by reciting the Hail Mary. This morning the point of the sermon is mainly, not deeply theological (everything to do with God is deeply theological), but it isn’t one of those heady sermons. It is maybe just a little thing to raise our appreciation for God’s power and His Providence, […]

Sermon for the First Sunday of Advent – December 3, 2017 by Father Sretenovic

Written on December 12, 2017 at 7:14 pm, by

Father began the sermon by reciting the Hail Mary. On this First Sunday of Advent you will notice that we did not pray the Gloria. That is not just because it is a penitential season, but because we are anticipating the great feast of Christmas when the angels broke out into the first Gloria in […]

The Transfiguration of Our Lord Jesus Christ – Father Paul Sretenovic

Written on August 10, 2017 at 12:00 pm, by

A reminder of the Transfiguration of Our Lord Jesus Christ to the three Apostles, Peter, James, and John, can be found in the Mass when Jesus is lifted up by the priest for all to adore Him, as was the case for the Apostles, who bowed before the Divinity. In fact, just as Moses and […]

Are You Doing Penance?

Written on May 24, 2017 at 1:36 pm, by

  A sign of “gathering with Jesus, Our Good Shepherd”? Because, He said “unless you gather with Me, you are scattering”, as 5 foolish virgins in the parable, who could not enter. The narrow path, the narrow gate is the way: penance, the world does not want to hear. Self-denial, the crosses, men seek to […]

Prayer knocks at the door, fasting obtains, mercy receives. Prayer, mercy and fasting: these three are one, and they give life to each other. Fasting is the soul of prayer, mercy […]
