Father Mitch Pacwa's homily for December 14th, 2020

Today’s Gospel brings up a problem that occurs throughout humanity–and we certainly see it in our own time; there are people who want to have authority and power but disregard what is true for its own sake. In this case, the chief priests and the elders were in charge of the temple where Our Lord […]

Father Mitch Pacwa's homily for Gaudete Sunday

In the Latin rite this is one of the two days in the Church’s year where we wear the rose colored vestments. And this Sunday is known as Guaudete Sunday. More than half of Advent is over, so there is rejoicing because Christmas is getting closer. And I always look forward to that because it […]

Michael Davies on Modernism

The subject of my talk this evening is Modernism. It’s a word with which we’ll all be familiar, and which some of you will have used from time to time, applying it no doubt to some priest or nun who has scandalized you with a statement or an action that has outraged your sense of […]

Father Mitch Pacwa's homily for December 9th

Today we celebrate that the Lord chose Juan Diego a native American and Native Mexican in those days. And he was chosen contrary to any of his own desires or interest to see the Blessed Mother. One of the important things is that it was a miraculous experience where the image of the Blessed Mother […]

Pro-Life activists gather for a “Jericho Walk” around the Massachusetts State House to protest the radical abortion bill heading for the Governor’s desk.
With prayers and a cross of roses, citizens urge governor to veto radical abortion bill

December 5th, Boston, in the freezing rain, pro-life citizens gathered to pray in front of the Massachusetts State House, bringing with them over on thousand roses, which they arranged into the shape of a cross at the gate and covered the steps on each side. Participants are uniting to urge Governor Baker to veto Bill […]

Repeatedly, Scripture teaches us that death is God’s enemy. We have to remember that today. Because we see governments using death as their ally, whether it be the Nazis, who want to eliminate peoples that they think are inferior, so they use death as their ally, or Communist and Socialist governments who want to use death as an ally to eliminate anybody who disagrees with them–and they killed more than the Nazis.

People in our own society who want those who interfere–with my environmental concerns, my concerns for career–if they are in my way, I have to use my ally, death. And politicians buy into that. You see over and over again how they want to use death as their friend. But they are making friends with God’s enemy. This is what they do when they want euthanasia, abortion, elimination, rounding up their enemies, all of those things. They are making God’s enemy their ally.

Father Mitch Pacwa's homily for December 2nd

It is always important for us to remember, as we enter into this season of Advent, that it’s part of a bookend celebration. At the end of the liturgical year, we were reading text about the Final Judgment and the end of the world. At the beginning of the liturgical year, we do it again […]

Fulton Sheen: The Fourth Great Crisis in the Church

In this conference, I’m going to tell you about the way the world is going, and what we may expect, and what we should do. First of all, we are at the end of Cristendom. Now, not Christianity, not the Church. Remember, what I am saying. We’re at the end of Christendom. What is Christendom? […]

As performed by the EWTN Daily Mass Choir

My Shepherd will supply my need, Jehovah is his name;
in pastures fresh he makes me feed beside the living stream.
He brings my wandering spirit back when I forsake his ways,
and leads me, for his mercy’s sake, in paths of truth and grace.

When I walk through the shades of death, thy presence is my stay;
one word of thy supporting breath dives all my fears away.
Thy hand, in sight of all my foes, doth still my table spread;
my cup with blessings overflows, thy oil anoints my head.

The sure provisions of my God attend me all my days;
oh, may thy house be mine abode and all my work be praise.
There would I find a settled rest, while others go and come;
no more a stranger or a guest but like a child at home.

Words by Isaac Watts

Father Mitch Pacwa's homily for Wednesday, November 11

Appropriate for our present moment in history is this reading from Titus. It’s worth keeping in mind that when St. Paul says to remind everyone to be under the control of the magistrates and authorities, to be obedient, and to be open to every good enterprise, he said this while the Roman government had arrested […]

Have your children pray, using the holy words that you have taught them: those confident prayers will rise to God and will not remain unheard. Have the elderly and sick pray, so that they may offer their sufferings in union with the sufferings that Our Lord suffered on the Cross when he shed His Precious Blood for Our Redemption. Have young ladies and women pray, so that they turn to her who is the model of purity and motherhood. And you, men, must also pray: your courage, your honor and your boldness will be refreshed and strengthened. All of you, take up this spiritual weapon, before which Satan and his minions retreat furiously, because they fear the Most Holy Virgin, she who is Almighty by Grace, even more than Almighty God.

Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò

Lord Jesus Christ, You told us to give to Caesar what belongs to Caesar, and to God what belongs to God. Enlighten the minds of our people in America.

May we choose a President of the United States, and other government officials, according to Your Divine Will.

Give our citizens the courage to choose leaders of our nation who respect the sanctity of unborn human life, the sanctity of marriage, the sanctity of marital relations, the sanctity of the family, and the sanctity of aging.

Grant us the wisdom to give You, what belongs to You, our God. If we do this, as a nation, we are confident You will give us an abundance of Your blessings through our elected leader. Amen.

‘Election Prayer’ by Servant of God, Father John Anthony Hardon, S.J.

It is a source of deepest sadness and pressing pastoral concern that the private opinions reported with so much emphasis by the press and attributed to Pope Francis do not correspond to the constant teaching of the Church, as it is expressed in Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition, and is guarded, protected and interpreted by the Magisterium. Equally sad and concerning is the turmoil, confusion, and error they cause among the Catholic faithful, as is the scandal they cause, in general, by giving the totally false impression that the Catholic Church has had a change of course, that is, has changed its perennial teaching regarding such fundamental and critical questions.
