Father Linus Clovis: courage in tribulation

At that time, when it was late, the ship was in the midst of the sea and Jesus alone on the land and seeing his disciples straining at the oars, for the wind that was against them, about the fourth watch of the night, he came to them walking upon the sea. And he would […]

Suzie Andres, Part 1

Does it bother you when someone walks into the pew for Sunday Mass, but doesn’t genuflect? Did you know that when you see the red light or lit candle near the Tabernacle, that Jesus is present inside that holy compartment? If you don’t feel good after the Sacrament of Reconciliation, does it mean you didn’t […]

We began Lent last year, and a few weeks into Lent last year churches began to close. It seemed like the whole world began to close; to shut down. Many of you were not able to enter into Lent, that is, enter into Lent going to Mass, and then for that journey toward Easter where we celebrate the Easter joy of the Resurrection.

So, for many people, Lent has become perpetual. We have not had that break where we celebrate Easter together. Easter was celebrated, Holy Week, Easter, the Octave, and the weeks going forward, at home for many people. And still, for many people, in some places they are still locked down, throughout the world. That is sad in many places. It is sad for the Mystical Body of Christ to be somehow separated from the celebration of the Sacraments.

For those of you who may be at home still and not celebrating mass in your churches, your parishes, you are united with us at this altar. And it may be an encouragement to you to go to Mass. Maybe you’re finding yourself a little afraid to go back. We are praying for you that you make that decision. I can guarantee you that most churches are spotless just like our church and clean just like our church. So come back to Mass. Receive the Sacraments.

Quote from Father John Paul Mary’s homily for the First Sunday of Lent
Father Linus Clovis: two by two

(The Gospel According to Saint Luke, 10:1-9) Our Blessed Lord came into the world to save sinners. He came not only for the children of Abraham but also for the whole human race; Jew as well as Gentile. He chose twelve apostles to continue his work. These twelve we know and are familiar with. Initially, […]

Father John Paul Mary’s homily for the First Sunday of Lent

We are all on a journey toward eternal life. Lent is a small-scale journey compared to that big journey of eternal life, in comparison to that lifelong journey for most people. Lent is a special time during the Liturgical Year where we prepare for the solemn celebration of the Passion, Death, and Resurrection of Our […]

Father Mitch Pacwa’s homily for February 4th, 2021

Today, this celebration, this feast of St. Joseph of Leonessa, helps to highlight something of today’s first reading from Hebrews; namely, this is the primary text where the Bible calls us to have devotion to the saints. And we remember the saints, in general. As a matter of fact, in the Maronite Rite, we just […]

Father Linus Clovis: the Lamb of God

The next day, he saw Jesus coming towards him and said, behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world. This is he of whom I said, after me comes a man who ranks before me, for he was before me. I myself did not know him, but for this I […]

The coming of God’s kingdom means the defeat of Satan’s: “If it is by the Spirit of God that I cast out demons, then the kingdom of God has come upon you.”

Jesus’ exorcisms free some individuals from the domination of demons. They anticipate Jesus’ great victory over “the ruler of this world”.

The kingdom of God will be definitively established through Christ’s cross: “God reigned from the wood.”

Father Mitch Pacwa’s homily for January 27th, 2021

Today we are continuing on in Chapter 10 of the letter to the Hebrews. This chapter is pulling together the very rich arguments of the previous nine chapters. He had been setting out step-by-step each of the points that were necessary for them to understand, and that included the divinity of Christ in Chapter 1, […]

Father Linus Clovis: the first four Apostles

When we have heard the Gospel proclaimed, we ought constantly to ponder the meaning of what we’ve heard. In this way, we will get to know Our Lord much better. We ought then to familiarize ourselves with him and his work; what he has come to do, in particular, what he’s come to do for […]

Father Linus Clovis: Our Lady of La Salette

Today is the feast of Our Lady of La Salette. [September 19th] In the year 1846, Saturday the 19th of September, Our Blessed Lady appeared to two children in the mountains around the village of La Salette. The two children, a boy, Maximin Giraud, and the girl, Mélanie Calvat, were strangers to each other. It […]

Can we interpret the sign of the times? 100 years ago, an event, Our Blessed Lady appeared Fatima. She gave a great sign: the sun danced in the sky. What greater sign could we need? Not only did she give the sign but she had actually promised the sign some three months previously, and on the exact date and at the exact time that she said the sign will be given, it was given. A crowd of 70,000 saw it; people from diverse backgrounds, people who were opposed to the apparitions at Fatima, people who knew nothing about the apparitions at Fatima; they were all witnesses to the sign. And the request was made: Consecrate Russia. A simple request; consecrate Russia and she will be converted. If not, she shall spread her errors throughout the world. This simple request was ignored, despite the great sign. And so we are seeing what has happened. The morning has come and the sky is red, and it will be stormy and threatening in our times.
