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.
