Catholic Sunday Sermons, with Epistles & Gospels, Homepage
Dear Visitor,

WELCOME!

Thank you for visiting the Catholic Sunday Sermons, with Epistles & Gospels, Homepage which has links to the individual Sermon web pages for each Sunday and also for several major Feast Days of the Catholic Church.

In the modern world in which all of us live, it seems most people, for various reasons, find themselves on what might be considered a family, or work, or social type of proverbial race track where one seems to be forced, by various circumstances, to run on this proverbial rack track, so that, by the end of the day, most people are physically, mentally, and emotionally drained and exhausted and just want some time to unwind and to relax from the pressures of life's hectic day.  So, most probably, the last thing most people would want to do is to read a Sermon?!

However, just as you will physically die if you do not eat food and drink water, so also your Immortal Soul will begin to Spiritually weaken, so to speak, unless you also nourish your Soul!   One way to nourish your Soul is by hearing, or at least by reading, a Sermon.  How easy!  So here there is no need to be rushing around.  Rather, take a break from the busy world, relax and unwind.

Slowly take a few deep breathes with the slower Spiritual pace - for the great benefit to your Soul which greatly profits from you being so much more relaxed and for you being at peace for a change!

Among other things, a Sermon.nourishes.your Soul because it can increase, among other things, the Virtue of Faith.  God the Holy Ghost, through the pen of Saint Paul, teaches that:.Faith then cometh by hearing; and hearing by the word of Christ. (Romans 10:17).  In other words, one purpose of a Sermon is to increase the Virtue of Faith in your Soul, while another purpose is to instruct you concerning one or more basic Truths of the One, Holy, Catholic Faith.

After most adults wake up, they begin to prepare themselves for the day by following various procedures, which, of course, vary somewhat from person to person, but which could include such things as taking a shower, combing and/or brushing one's hair, for Women - applying their make-up, for Men - shaving their beard, and for everyone, including Children, getting dressed, eating breakfast, etc.

Therefore, it is only logical, and makes total sense, to properly prepare oneself before reading one or more of the Sermons found on the links belowFor your convience, below are two very brief Prayers to use before reading the Sermon(s).



Proper Preparation of the Soul, the Mind, and the Heart
.

An Act of Contrition
You May Use the One You Normally Use
.
O my God, I am heartily sorry for having offended Thee, and I detest all my sins, because of Thy just punishments, but most of all because they offend Thee, my God, Who art all-good and deserving of all my love.  I firmly resolve, with the help of Thy Grace, to sin no more and to avoid all of the near occasions of sin.  Amen.
Unless God the Holy Ghost prepares the minds and hearts of those who read what is written, and/or who listen to Sermons or teachings, the Readers read in vain, and the Hearers listen in vain.
.

“Hence [Pope Saint] Gregory [the Great;  Friday, September 3, 590 - Monday, March 12, 604] says in a homily for Pentecost (Sermon XXX [30], Forty Homilies on the Gospels): Unless the Holy Ghost fills the hearts of the hearers, in vain does the voice of the teacher resound in the ears of the body.”  (Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., [b. 1225 A.D. in Rocca Secca, Naples, Italy - d. Wednesday, March 7, 1274 A.D. in Fossa Nuova, Italy], Doctor of the Church: “Angelic Doctor”, “Common Doctor”; “Summa Theologica”, Part II-II, Question 177, Article 1, Conclusion of the Article:   Whether any Gratuitous Grace attaches to words? emphasis added.)



VENI, SANCTE SPIRITUS
.
Come, O Holy Ghost, fill the hearts of Thy faithful and kindle in them the fire of Thy love.
.
V.  Send forth Thy Spirit, and they shall be created;
R.  And Thou shalt renew the face of the earth.
.
Let us pray.  O God, who didst instruct the hearts of Thy faithful by the light of Thy Holy Spirit, grant us in the same Spirit to relish what is right and ever to rejoice in His consolation.  Through Christ our Lord.  Amen.

Holy Mary, Seat of Wisdom, Pray for me.   Saint Thomas Aquinas, Pray for me.

Know you not, that they  [i.e. Catholic Priests and Bishops] who work in the Holy Place [i.e. in the Catholic Church],   eat the things that are of the Holy Place   [i.e. of the Catholic Church]; and they [i.e. Catholic Priests and Bishops]  that serve the Altar, partake with the Altar?  So also the Lord ordained that they  [i.e. Catholic Priests and Bishops ]  who Preach the Gospel, should live by the  [financial support of the]  Gospel.”  (1 Corinthians 9:13-14; emphasis added.)

Always Remember:
.

Catholicus Saint Basil the Great
Dogmas of Faith CAN NOT be changed one jot or tittle.

(Catholicus Saint Basil the Great [b. Caesarea, Cappadocia 329 A.D. - d. Caesarea, Cappadocia on Monday, January 1, 379 A.D.]. His Mother was Emmelia, the Daughter of a holy martyr.  He was the Catholicus of Caesarea, Metropolitan Archbishop of Cappadocia, Exarch of Pontus, Superior of fifty Chorepiscopi [Sunday, June 14, 370 A.D. - Monday, January 1, 379 A.D.], Doctor of the Catholic Church, “De Spiritu Sancto”, Chapter 1, ¶ 2; emphasis added).



Our Mission, Duty, Mandate, etc.
.Part One
.Our Mission includes defending Dogma, Morality, and Justice.
We must warn naive people, strengthen those who are timid, and open the eyes of the blinded.




“In the face of the combined efforts of incredulity and heresy to bring about the ruin of the Catholic Faith, it would be a real crime for the Clergy [Priests and all Prelates of whatever rank of Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction] to remain in a state of hesitancy and inactivity.  In such an outpouring of error and conflict of opinion, the Clergy must not be faithless to their mission which is to defend Dogma - when it is assaulted, Morality - when it is mocked, and Justice - which is frequently outraged.”

“[To each member of the Clergy, it belongs] to make himself a road block to the attacks of error and the deceits of heresy to watch the tactics of the wicked who war against the Faith....; to unmask the plots and to reveal the ambushes and traps; they must warn naive people, strengthen those who are timid, and open the eyes of the blinded.”

Superficial erudition, or merely common knowledge, will not suffice for all of this - there is the need for the solid, profound and continuous study [by all the Clergy] of a massive amount of Doctrinal knowledge which must be sufficient to cope with the subtlety and remarkable cunning of our Modern opponents....” (Pope Leo XIII, Gioacchino Vincenzo Pecci [Wednesday, February 20, 1878 - Monday, July 20, 1903], Encyclical “Depuis Le Jour”, On the Education of the Clergy, Friday, September 8, 1899, ¶ 48 “In Doctrina”; emphasis added.)


Part Two
We Also Have A Sacred Duty




“These latter days have witnessed a notable increase in the number of the enemies of the Cross of Christ, who, by arts entirely new and full of deceit, are striving to destroy the vital energy of the Church, and, as far as in them lies, utterly to subvert the very Kingdom of Christ. Wherefore, We may no longer keep silence, lest We should seem to fail in Our most Sacred Duty, and lest the kindness that, in the hope of wiser counsels, We have hitherto shown them, should be set down to lack of diligence in the discharge of Our Office” (Pope Saint Pius X, Encyclical Pascendi Dominici Gregis, On the Doctrine of the Modernists, Sunday, September 8, 1907, ¶ 1; emphasis added.)

Part Three
.Our Apostolic Mandate
.Catholic Doctrine tells us that the
primary duty of Charity does not lie in the toleration of false ideas.



Catholic Doctrine tells us that the primary duty of Charity does not lie in the toleration of false ideas, however sincere they may be.... Catholic Doctrine further tells us that love for our neighbor flows from our love for God, Who is Father to all, and goal of the whole human family; and in Jesus Christ whose members we are, to the point that in doing good to others we are doing good to Jesus Christ Himself. Any other kind of love is sheer illusion, sterile and fleeting....”  (Pope Saint Pius X, Giuseppe Melchiorre Sarto [Tuesday, August 4, 1903 - Thursday, August 20, 1914], Encyclical “Notre Charge Apostolique”, Our Apostolic Mandate, To the French Bishops, Monday, August 15, 1910, ¶ 27; emphasis added.)

“Further, whilst Jesus was kind to sinners and to those who went astray, He did not respect their false ideas, however sincere they might have appeared. He loved them all, but He instructed them in order to convert them and save them....   they show in Our Lord Jesus Christ something quite different from an inconsistent and impotent humanitarianism.”  (Pope Saint Pius X, Giuseppe Melchiorre Sarto [Tuesday, August 4, 1903 - Thursday, August 20, 1914], Encyclical “Notre Charge Apostolique”, Our Apostolic Mandate, To the French Bishops, Monday, August 15, 1910, ¶ 47; emphasis added.)


Part Four
The Authentic Apostolic Traditions.

That the ears of the Faithful may attest that We Preach nothing else than what We received from Our Forefathers.”  (Pope Saint Leo the Great  [Saturday, September 29, 440 - Thursday, November 10, 461], Letter CXXIX [129], Letter to Hieromartyr, Patriarch Proterius of Alexandria [451 A.D. - 457 A.D.]; emphasis added.)

Part Five
The Speaker and the Hearers



It can neither profit me, the speaker, to speak, nor you, the hearers, to hear, unless we comply with the things which are spoken, ...so let us not limit the display of our zeal to hearing only, but let us observe what is said in our deeds. For it is indeed a good thing to spend time continually in hearing the Divine oracles: but this good thing becomes useless when the benefit to be derived from hearing is not linked with it.”   (Patriarch Saint John Chrysostom [b. Antioch, c. 347 A.D. - d. at Commana in Pontus on Friday, September 14, 407 A.D.], Patriarch of Constantinople [Thursday, February 26, 398 A.D. - Thursday, June 24, 404 A.D.], exiled from his See the 2nd time on Thursday, June 24, 404 A.D., Father and Doctor of the Catholic Church. Sermon on Romans 12:20; emphasis added.)


Part Six
A Brief Summary

Therefore, in summary, no person can have the one and only Holy, Saving, Unchangeable, Catholic Faith, nor profess it, nor think, speak, or do anything which is Spiritually beneficial, unless God the Holy Ghost gently acts on the Immortal, Rational, Soul of that person with His Divine Inspirations, Guidance, and Consolations, as the result of hearing (or at least in reading) a Sermon, for  Faith then cometh by hearing (Romans 10:17), so that the powers of the Soul, the Intellect and Will, function in complete and total uniformity and conformity with the Divine Will.

Here is how it has been expressed by a Holy Saint of the Catholic Church:

“Yet I have not effected anything by this exhortation. Therefore I speak again and shall not cease speaking, until I have persuaded you. Hearing profits nothing unless it is accompanied by practice. It makes our punishment heavier, if we continually hear the same things and do none of the things which are spoken.   That the chastisement will be heavier, hear the statement of Christ. ‘If I had not come, and spoken to them, they would not have sin; but now they have no excuse for their sin.’  (John 15:22).  And the Apostle says ‘For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified’  (Romans 2:13).”   (Patriarch Saint John Chrysostom, Sermon on Romans 12:20; emphasis added.)

Dear Visitors:

Please help Us to continue to provide the Truth,  which   all Catholics need to know,   in these days of deliberate confusion,   lies, brainwashing,  and   propaganda!

Some of Our web pages are the only places on the Internet where you will find some very important facts,  because some of these facts are from Our own many personal experiences,     as well as the result of Our meetings with many Catholic Traditional Clergy including various Patriarchs, Cardinals, Primates, Metropolitans, Archbishops, Bishops, and Religious and Secular Priests, over many, many, many decades,    plus    Our own eye-witness testimony,   concerning   some of the many, many, many changes, which began many, many, many decades, before the many, many, many younger generations of Catholics were even born,   and    of which changes all of these so many, many younger generations of Catholics, have no personal knowledge and/or personal experiences.

Most of these many changes    are not only   illegal,  but they are also   invalid,  and   most of them include the censure of  automatic excommunication of the perpetrators,  because, in reality, such changes by the cabal of   automatically excommunicated Innovators,   as well as   the secret gangs   of anti-Catholic Infiltrators,    are changes which are  anti-Catholic!

Discover what the ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH teaches    about the UNCHANGEABLE: Roman Catholic Faith,   Mass, Sacraments,  etc., etc.

We have recently added what has quickly become Our very popular Editorial Pages on various subjects.
