The Feast of the Holy Family
First Saturday Devotions - 18-02-17
Father George gives a strong First Saturday to remove a seeds of confusion amongst the faithful.
Quinquagesima Sunday - 26-02-17
In this last Sunday before the holy season of Lent, the Church gives us scriptural readings that are most appropriate for this penitential season. In the Epistle (I Cor. 13:1-13), St. Paul tells us of the importance of charity in the spiritual life: “And if I distribute all my goods to feed the poor, and if I deliver my body to be burned, yet do not have charity, it profits me nothing.”
1st Sunday Lent EF - 05-03-17
“Behold, now is the acceptable time; behold, now is the day of salvation!” (II Cor. 6:2). Today, the Church initiates the penitential season of Lent in order to prepare us for the glorious resurrection at Easter. In today’s Epistle (II Cor. 6:1-10) St. Paul reminds us of the spiritual warfare we all face in working out our salvation. “Behold, now is the acceptable time; behold, now is the day of salvation!” The Gospel (Mt. 4:1-11), warns us in the three temptations of Jesus to arm ourselves with God’s Word in order to conquer Satan who continually tempts us to do evil works that serve his kingdom. In The Liturgical Year Vol. 5 by Dom Prosper Gueranger, O.S.B., we find the traditional teaching of the Church on how these temptations relate to Lent and the spiritual life.
Father George Preaches - 11-03-17
Father George teaches us about the need to live Holy, Virtuous and Chaste lives and stop offending God our Father. Is it not right to live an immoral life. We must give a true witness for our Faith in Jesus Christ in these testing times.
Father George Preaches - 12-03-17
We hear in this second week of Lent, the beautiful Gospel account of the Transfiguration of Jesus on Mount Thabor.
Father George Preaches - 26-03-17
In today’s gospel, Jesus anticipates the heavenly banquet by providing an earthly one with His miracle of “The Multiplication of the Loaves and Fishes.” Jesus has compassion on the many people who had been following Him for days and were hungry.
Father George Preaches - 02-04-17
“Amen, amen, I say to you before Abraham came to be, I am.” Jn. 8:58. This Sunday is called Passion Sunday because the Church begins on this day to make the sufferings of Jesus, our Redeemer, the main object of our thought as we approach the Paschal Mysteries of our Redemption.
Father George Easter Sunday - 16-04-17
The Solemnity of the Resurrection of Our Lord Saviour Jesus Christ on Easter Sunday is the most joyful of feasts. It is Jesus’ triumph over death and a pledge of our own resurrection from the dead at the end of our life. St. Paul tells us: “And if Christ is not risen, vain then is our preaching, vain too is your faith.”
Feast of Divine Mercy Talk 23-04-17
Concerning the Feast of Mercy Jesus said: Whoever approaches the Fountain of Life on this day will be granted complete forgiveness of sins and punishment. (Diary 300) I want the image solemnly blessed on the first Sunday after Easter, and I want it to be venerated publicly so that every soul may know about it. (Diary 341)
Father George Feast of Mercy Homily 23-04-17
This Feast emerged from the very depths of My mercy, and it is confirmed in the vast depths of my tender mercies. (Diary 420)
Father George 3rd Sunday Easter - 07-05-17
“If you say the Rosary faithfully unto death, I do assure you that, in spite of the gravity of your sins, ‘you will receive a never-fading crown of glory’ (1 St. Peter 5:4).” Saint Louis de Montfort
Father George 5th Sunday Easter - 21-05-17
We are preparing for the Ascension of Jesus. Jesus will always be with us. We must ask in the name of Jesus and we will receive what we ask for. This is the efficacy of praying in the name of Jesus with confidence and humility. When we pray in the name of Jesus these prayers are based on the abundant fruit of the merits of Christ. We must have confidence in this name. Humility is the key to know our nothingness while having absolute confidence that God will give to our souls what we need to save ourselves. Jesus wants us to ask Him and He will listen to us if the prayer is in accordance with God's will.
Father George Homily 5th Ember Saturday 10-06-17
We see in the cure in the mother-in-law of St. Peter that Jesus comes to heal not just our body's but principally the spirit. We must overcome our passions and believe in the power of Jesus Christ. We are all sinners in need of the grace of God. W e hear of the remarkable conversion story of Blessed Bartolo Longo - the Apostle of the Holy Rosary who was a satanist.
Father George Homily Trinity Sunday 11-06-17
What does it mean to be infinite - it cannot be measured. We are finite as human beings but God knows all things and knows even all our thoughts. He is Almighty. God allows us to be tempted to overcome them and grow in the life if Christian perfection. Father George tells us again of the stroll along the seashore by St. Augustine when he meets the small child trying to empty out the ocean.
Father George Homily IV SUNDAY after PENTECOST 02-07-17
We can do nothing without God. We must have unshakeable hope in God. What have we to be afraid of - "The Lord is my light an d salvation". When we trust in the Lord, we will win. When we trust in ourselves, we will lose.
Father George Homily Solemnity John Fosher and Thomas More 09-07-17
St. John Fisher and St. Thomas More were the most prominent opponents of King Henry VIII’s plan to take control of the Catholic Church in England in 1534. Both died for the integrity of the Catholic Church. Both firmly held that what Henry VIII wanted to do was not simply wrong, but impossible.
Father George Homily Feast Holy Sepulchre 15-07-17
In 1342, with the approval of Pope Clement VI, the honor of protecting the Holy Places was conferred upon the Franciscans, present in the Holy Land since 1335. Since that time the Franciscan friars have occupied the Chapel of the Apparition of the risen Jesus to his Mother.
Father George Homily 6th Sunday after Prentecost 16-07-17
Father George mentions the importance of the Brown Scapular. This Homily is an answer to many questions - we must follow God's Commandments to follow the Truth and have the answer for many of life's questions. Father talks about the multiplication of the loaves to help us understand these miracles. We must be a "purified" people following Jesus Christ.
Father George 7th Sunday after Pentecost 23-07-17
“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is life everlasting in Christ Jesus.” Rom. 6:23 Fr. Gabriel of St. Magdalene in his book of meditations, Divine Intimacy, comments on today’s readings: “Both the Epistle (Rom. 6:19-23) and the Gospel (Mt. 7:15-21) for today speak of the true fruits of the Christian life and invite us to ask ourselves what fruit we have produced so far. ‘
Father George Homily 29-07-17
CCC - 2370 Periodic continence, that is, the methods of birth regulation based on self-observation and the use of infertile periods, is in conformity with the objective criteria of morality. These methods respect the bodies of the spouses, encourage tenderness between them, and favour the education of an authentic freedom. In contrast, "every action which, whether in anticipation of the conjugal act, or in its accomplishment, or in the development of its natural consequences, proposes, whether as an end or as a means, to render procreation impossible" is intrinsically evil.
Father George Homily EF - August 19th 2017
Father George speaks about Change..Change....Change. Jesus has come to cast fire upon the earth. We must remain steadfast in the Truth and increase our sacrificial life for the salvation of all souls. Our Lady of Fatima - help us.
Father George EF Homily - August 20th
Today’s Gospel from St. Mark (7:31-37) gives us a most unusual miracle that Jesus performed in the land of the Gentiles beyond Galilee. It is a symbolic foreshadowing of the call of the Gentiles to Baptism by the Apostles after Jesus’ Ascension.
Father George EF Homily - October 21st 2017
We are living in perilous times. According to Bishop Athanasius Schneider we are now living in one of the four greatest crisis the Church has ever experienced. Is this true ??? Listen to Father George who reveals all in his Homily last Saturday.
Father George EF Homily - November 26th 2017
With the description of the end of the world and the coming of Christ to judge the living and the dead, the Gospel (Mt. 24:13-25) reminds us that just as the liturgical year comes to an end, so does the life of man on earth.
Father George Homily - First Sunday Advent December 03rd 2017
Dom Prosper Gueranger in his book, The Liturgical Year Vol. 1: Advent comments: “If ...we would penetrate into the profound mystery which occupies the mind of the Church during this season, we find that this mystery of the coming, or Advent, of Jesus is at once simple and threefold. It is simple, for it is the one same Son of God that is coming; it is threefold, because He comes at three different times and in three different ways.
Father George Homily - December 09th 2017
Father George preaches a most powerful homily of the state of the Church and the attacks against Catholicism in this "Culture of Death" we are immersed in nowadays. We must not lose hope however because The Immaculate will deliver us.
Father George Homily - December 16th 2017
Father George preaches a most powerful homily of the state of the Church and the reality of Hell which we must meditate upon if we wish to escape this punishment for eternity and sacrifice for others to save souls.
Father George Homily - December 17th 2017
“Rejoice in the Lord always: again, I say rejoice...The Lord is nigh...” Phil. 4:4-5. Today, the Church is filled with joy as the Lord is very close. It is almost the time of His coming on Christmas Day. The Church calls this Sunday “Gaudete Sunday” after the first word of today’s Introit.
Father George Homily - December 25th 2017
But such is the greatness of today’s Mystery, that the Church is not satisfied with only once offering up the Holy Sacrifice. The long-expected and precious Gift deserves an unusual welcome. God the Father has given his Son to us; and it is by the operation of the Holy Ghost that the grant Portent is produced; let there be, then to the ever Blessed Three, the homage of a triple Sacrifice
Father George Homily - December 30th 2017
Father George speaks of the Seven Gifts of the Holy Spirit which are Wisdom, Understanding, Counsel, Fortitude, Knowledge, Piety, and Fear of the Lord. They belong in their fullness to Christ, Son of David. They complete and perfect the virtues of those who receive them. They make the faithful docile in readily obeying divine inspirations. (CCC 1831)
Father George Homily - December 31th 2017
Today’s Holy Mass is an echo of Christmas as it speaks of peace and joy, but it also has a note of sorrow. In the Gospel (Luke 2|:33-40), St. Luke transports us to the Presentation of Jesus in the Temple, forty days after His birth, where we see the element of both joy and sadness with Simeon’s prophecy of Jesus’ destiny:
Father George Homily - 07th January Epiphany
Today we celebrate the Solemnity of the Epiphany. The Church commemorate the manifestation of Jesus to the Gentiles in the person of Three Magi from the East who represent all the nations of the world.

Father George Homily - Saturday 13th January 2018 Baptism

Father George Homily - 14 January 2018
The New Wine of Charity“. A Feast is prepared (cf. Jn. 2): it is a Marriage-Feast; and the Mother of Jesus is present at it, for it is just that, having co-operated in the mystery of the Incarnation of the Word, she should take part in all that her Son does, and in all the favours he bestows on his elect.
Father George Homily - 21 January 2018
In today’s Gospel (Mt. 8:1-13), we see how Jesus Himself exemplifies His great love for men by His compassion for the leper and the centurion’s ailing servant. Likewise, in today’s Epistle to the Romans (12:16-21), St. Paul emphasizes the need for charity, especially towards our enemies.
Father George Homily - Saturday 27th January 2018
Father George tells us to wake up and allow our conscience to be awakened. Our conscience will tell us what we need to do to receive God's mercy. We must respond with the Prayer of the Holy Rosary.
Father George Homily - Sunday 28th January 2018
This Sunday begins the period in the Church’s liturgy that indicates a transition between the joys of Christmas and Epiphany and the rigours of Lent. Pope St. Gregory the Great established these Sundays before Easter: Septuagesima (70 days), Sexagesima (60 days) and Quinquagesima (50 days) in order to prepare the faithful, both in body and spirit, for the Lenten period of penance.
Father George Homily - Sunday 04th February 2018
As we learned last week, in these three Sundays before Lent, the texts of the Liturgy help us recognize ourselves as weak sinners who need to repent in preparation for the Lenten and Paschal mysteries. With this in mind, we can understand the explanation Jesus gave to the Apostles about why He spoke in parables.
Father George Homily - Sunday 10th February 2018
Blessed are the clean of heart, for they shall see God. Father George tells us on the feast of St. Scholastica, of the grace to live a chaste life as this wise virgin.
Father George Homily - Ash Wednesday 14th February 2018
"Memento, homo ... quia pulvis es, et in pulverem reverteris" (cf. Gn 3:19). We must turn to the Lord in a spirit of repentance in this LENT. This is the acceptable time of prayer, penance and alms-giving. How many years have we left. We cannot take any chances for our salvation.
