    Our associate preached on “Bringing an Era to and end”. The points I remember best are that we need to look at ourselves in these days and get rid of all that is disordered within us for conversion. He made a heart felt plea to go to confession.
    He also mentioned prophesies for our times by
    the marian apparition of Our Lady of Good Success.
    He urged us to pray, remain faithful, and to trust in the Lord.

  2. Suzanne Carl says:

    Our pastor spoke about the evils of socialism (envy), and unbridled capitalism (greed). He quoted Pope Leo XIII. Pretty cool for a NO Mass.

  3. Johanna says:

    We had the fifth in a series of sermons I have been enjoying very much, about Dante’s Inferno. This one was about the second circle of hell, Paolo and Francesca, and difference between love and lust.

  5. Chris Garton-Zavesky says:

    Former pastor back in town.

    Mentioned that in his last apostolate (Mauritius) the hospitals don’t have single rooms, so the Hindus and the other non-Christians see Christians kissing the cross. These same ( the unbaptized) persons then embrace the cross which is brought by the chaplain to the hospital.

  6. Mary-Kathleen says:

    Our priest spoke about Purgatory. He talked about what it is and what it is for, and the Biblical basis for our belief in it. He also corrected a common misconception: “Didn’t Vatican II get rid of Purgatory?” Very good sermon.

  7. HvonBlumenthal says:

    At the SSPX chapel at Woippy, near Metz, France, the sermon was on the subject of reparation. The chief point was that when you go to confession, God forgives you. But this does not relieve you of the obligation to make reparation, which can be done in this life or in purgatory. You can also make reparation for the sins of others, which is an act of Christian charity.

  8. pascal788 says:

    Sorry to say our sermon was a meaningless jumble of platitudes. The priest has difficulties with his diction so a lot of what he says is lost.
    What his message was I have no idea. It’s like this every Sunday.
    The NO Mass was said as I suppose all NO Masses are said; a rather protestant service.

  9. JonPatrick says:

    Before preaching on the readings, Father related a situation he had recently where someone had requested a gravesite service for someone that had died but turned down the opportunity to have a funeral Mass said. He talked about how many of us will have to be purified as a result of the temporal punishment due for our sins and how the most effective way to help those in Purgatory is to have masses said for them. The funeral Mass is not about remembering the deceased it is for their benefit to help them get to heaven.
    On the readings he spoke about how “fear of the Lord” is not servile fear of punishment but is not wanting to offend God because we love him.

  10. Anne C. says:

    Amen – I was there! We (Mankind) weren’t listening, so Jesus sent his Mother! Besides Quito, he also mentioned LaSalette, Fatima and Akita. We need to become willing to give our lives for Jesus.
