Affixed To The Cross

First Sunday in Lent 2017

After a brief instruction about liturgical and sacred art this sermon tells about the importance of the sacramental of ashes.  Stations of the Cross is a Lenten practice beloved by the faithful because our Blessed Mother began the devotion.  Catholics must imitate the way of the Cross so they may be joined to Our Lord on it.  Finally, the temptations of Christ are explained.

The Meanings of Penance

Ash Wednesday 2017

Ash Wednesday begins the forty days of Lenten practice.  Penance is the virtue which motivates the faithful to receive the same named sacrament and do the works of that virtue, namely prayer, fasting & almsgiving.  The sacramental of the ashes gives the strength to do this.  Also in this sermon, we are given suggested ways of practicing Lenten penances.

Almsgiving

Friday After Ash Wednesday 2017 (First Friday)

The stational churches in Lent are important and the term has its origin in the Roman legion.  Today’s stational church has been matched with the texts of this Mass to teach us the importance of one of the three main Lenten penances: almsgiving.  This practice is ancient but misunderstood as to its nature, its proper motivation and correct manner of exercise.

Lent Comes From The Heart of God

Ash Wednesday Evening 2017

Our sins have caused the death of God on the cross and from the Sacred Heart comes the means of repairing this.  Ash Wednesday is the call to conversion and the ashes we receive remind us of our own death and that this may be our last opportunity to change.  Pope Pius X said Ignorance is the greatest of our time for Catholics so study of the Faith during Lent is an important penance.
