Homily - Second Sunday of Lent - February 21, 2016

1 Thes. 4:1-7; Mt. 17:1-9

Every year, on the Second Sunday of Lent, we have this gospel of the Transfiguration of our Lord.  He is on His way to Jerusalem now, from Galilee, where He will undergo His cross and suffering.  He has announced this to His disciples, but they can hardly understand.  And so He gives them this glimpse of His risen glory, to encourage them, and so they will know that He is capable of accomplishing what He has told them He will do in the resurrection.

Homily - First Sunday of Lent - February 14, 2016

2 Cor. 6:1-10; Mt. 4:1-11

St. Augustine says that our Lord went into the desert to be tempted so that He would be our mediator against temptation not only by aid, but by example.  Each of the temptations in today’s Gospel is a temptation to choose some other way than the cross.  The cross is the one means of salvation, and the devil knows it, and he will do anything to separate us, and even our Lord, from the cross.  The cross is a sacrifice, the great exchange.  In sacrifice one stands in the place of another.  In the cross, the Lord Himself stands in our place, bearing the weight of our sin and weakness, and, by His power as God, overcomes it in the resurrection, so that we may stand in His place, beloved sons and daughters of the Father.  Only He can accomplish this, and only through the sacrifice of the cross.

Father James Fryar, FSSP will be speaking as part of the upcoming University Series, February 18th from 7:30-9:00 p.m. at St. Paschal Baylon Parish Hall, 155 E. Janss Road, Thousand Oaks, CA 91360.  His topic will be Experiencing Christ's Passion more Profoundly in Every Mass.  Fr. Fryar, who says Mass in the Extraordinary Form at St. Mary Magdalen Parish, will use St. Alfons Liguori’s mediation on how to follow Christ in His passion, death and resurrection in order to guide us into participating more deeply in each part of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. This simple introduction to this devotion can make our experience of Mass profoundly deeper and more fruitful.
