I wish you all this day a most blessed Feast of St. Francis of Assisi!

 

St. Francis is known as the second Christ since he modeled his life so closely after Our Lord.  The sacred stigmata imprinted onto St. Francis is proof of this.

 

Tertiaries and cordbearers may obtain a plenary indulgence this day by renewing their profession/novitiate/commitment and fulfilling the usual conditions required for a plenary indulgence.

Sermons for Sundays

10 September 2016

Attached is a set of sermons discussing the Mass readings for the Sixteenth Sunday after Pentecost. We encourage everyone to read a good set of sermons every Sunday as we are in need of proper teaching and do not have recourse to sermons of Resistance priests on a regular basis.

 
The complete book of sermons (four books in total) can be found here:

In particular, we call your attention to the second sermon (St Basil the Great, Doctor of the Church) called Meditation on Humility and on Vainglory, which exemplifies Franciscan Spirituality. and demonstrates why these Virtues are to be sought after.
