The Blessed Virgin advanced in her pilgrimage of faith, and faithfully persevered in her union with her Son unto the cross. There she stood, in keeping with the divine plan, enduring with her only begotten Son the intensity of his suffering, joining herself with his sacrifice in her mother’s heart, and lovingly consenting to the immolation of this victim, born of her: to be given, by the same Christ Jesus dying on the cross, as a mother to his disciple, with these words: “Woman, behold your son” (LG 58; Jn 19:26-27; CCC: 964). read more

Christ bestowed unity on his Church from the beginning. This unity, we believe, subsists in the Catholic Church as something she can never lose, and we hope that it will continue to increase until the end of time. Christ always gives his Church the gift of unity, but the Church must always pray and work to maintain, reinforce, and perfect the unity that Christ wills for her. This is why Jesus himself prayed at the hour of his Passion, and does not cease praying to his Father, for the unity of his disciples (Jn 17:21; CCC: 820). read more

Children, it is your Christian duty to obey your parents, for this is the right thing to do. “Respect you father and mother” is the first commandment that has a promise added: “so that all may go well with you, and you may live a long time in the land” (Eph 6:1-3). The fecundity of conjugal love cannot be reduced solely to the procreation of children, but must extend to their moral education and their spiritual formation (CCC: 2221). The home is the natural environment for initiating a human being into solidarity and communal responsibilites (CCC: 2224). read more

Endowed with “a spiritual and immortal” soul, the human person is “the only creature on earth that God has willed for its own sake” (GS 24#3). From his conception he is destined for eternal beatitude. The human person participates in the light and power of the divine Spirit. By his reason, he is capable of understanding the order of things established by the Creator. By free will, he is capable of directing himself toward his true good. He finds his perfection “in seeking and loving what is true and good” (GS 17; CCC: 1703-1704). read more

“Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful” (Heb 10:23). “The Holy Spirit… he poured out upon us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that we might be justified by his grace and become heirs in hope of eternal life” (Titus 3:6-7). The virtue of hope responds to the aspiration to happiness which God has placed in the heart of every man; it takes up the hopes that inspire men’s activities and purifies them so as to order them to the Kingdom of heaven; it keeps man from discouragement; it sustains him during times of abandonment; it opens up his heart in expectation of eternal beatitude. Buoyed up by hope, he is preserved from selfishness and led to the happiness that flows from charity (CCC: 1818). read more

Archbishop Fulton Sheen: The Meaning of the Mass

The Meaning of the Mass – Venerable Fulton Sheen

Published on Feb 10, 2013

One of his best retreats, preached before a live audience in a church toward the end of Archbishop Sheen’s active life.

“Do this in memory of me”: The command of Jesus to repeat his actions and words ‘until he comes’ does not only ask us to remember Jesus and what he did. It is directed at the liturgical celebration, by the apostles and their successors, of the memorial of Christ, of his life, of his death, of his Resurrection, and of his intercession in the presence of the Father (cf. 1 Cor 11:26; CCC: 1341). read more

Archbishop Sheen: The Devil, the Diabolic and the Satanic

Man, tempted by the devil, let his trust in his Creator die in his heart and, abusing his freedom, disobeyed God’s command. This is what man’s first sin consisted of (cf. Gen 3:1-11; Rom 5:19). All subsequent sin would be disobedience toward God and lack of trust in his goodness (CCC: 397).

Why do people make useless plots? Their kings revolt, their rulers plot together against the Lord and against the king he chose. “Let us free ourselves from their rule,’ they say; ‘let us throw off their control.” From his throne in heaven the Lord laughs and mocks their feeble plans. Then he warns them in anger and terrifies them with his fury, “On Zion, my sacred hill,” he says, “. “I have installed my king.” “I will announce,” says the king, “what the Lord has declared. He said to me: ‘You are my son; today I have become your father. Ask, and I will give you all the nations; the whole earth will be yours. You will break them with an iron rod; you will shatter them in pieces like a clay pot.’” Now listen to this warning, you kings; learn this lesson, your rulers of the world: Serve the Lord with fear; tremble and bow down to him; or else his anger will be quickly aroused, and you will suddenly die. Happy are all who go to him for protection (Psalms 2:1-11). read more
