The Fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time January 29, 2023 Year of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Ark of the New Covenant

Christ Jesus embodies, incarnates, is the BeatitudesWhen he preaches the Beatitudes, Christ is providing an intimate commentary on who he himself is, and the disciples are to be fortunate and blessed in this precise way in which the Son of God is fortunate and blessed.”  (Father Simeon taken from the Magnificat January 2023)

“Our life during this earthly pilgrimage cannot be without temptations, for we make progress along life’s path precisely through our fight against temptations; nobody can know himself unless he has experienced temptation, nor can he be crowned if he has not been victorious, nor can he be victorious if he has not fought, nor can he fight if he has not enemies and temptations.” (Saint Augustine, Enarrationes in Psalmos)

“The development, desire by us, of devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary is an indication of the
Church’s genuine piety. This devotion fits – as we have indicated above – into the only worship
that is rightly called ‘Christian,’ because it takes its origin and effectiveness from Christ, finds
its complete expression in Christ, and leads through Christ in the Spirit to the Father.”
(Pope Paul VI, For the Right Ordering and Development of Devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary, p.4)

Solemnity of The Nativity of The Lord December 25, 2022 Christmas

“O sweet Child of Bethlehem, grant that we may share with all our
hearts in this profound mystery of Christmas. Put into the hearts of
men this peace for which they sometime seek so desperately and
which you alone can give to them. Help them to know one another
better, and to live as brothers, children of the same Father.
Reveal to them also your beauty, holiness, and purity. Awaken in
their hearts love and gratitude for your infinite goodness. Join them
all together in your love. And give us your heavenly peace. Amen.”

by Pope St. John XXIII, from his Journal of a Soul

Christmas Homily 2022 (Deacon Bullock)

(Homily by Deacon Bullock)

Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe Twenty-Fourth and Last Sunday after Pentecost (Latin Mass) November 20, 2022 Year of Saint Joseph

“Any new departure in the discipline or liturgy of the Catholic Church tends to be accepted, almost at once, as a legacy from immemorial antiquity. Probably most people think of this feast, the Feast of the Kingship of Christ, that is if they think of it at all, as something that has always been there, like Trinity Sunday, or even All Saints’ Day. As a matter of fact, it was established in the year of jubilee, 1925.”
(Ronald Knox, Pastoral and Occasional Sermons, p.521)
