The Spiritual Combat

First Sunday of Lent Sermon (Fr. Despósito)

Delivered on Sunday, March 5th, 2017


If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down, for it is written: That he hath given his angels charge over thee, and in their hands shall they bear thee up, lest perhaps thou dash thy foot against a stone.  Jesus said to him: It is written again: Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God. St. Matthew, 4:6-7.

Passion Sunday

 

   

   "Surely he hath borne our infirmities and carried our sorrows: and we have thought him as it were a leper, and as one struck by God and afflicted. But he was wounded for our iniquities, he was bruised for our sins: the chastisement of our peace was upon him, and by his bruises we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray, every one hath turned aside into his own way: and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. He was offered because it was his own will, and he opened not his mouth: he shall be led as a sheep to the slaughter, and shall be dumb as a lamb before his shearer, and he shall not open his mouth." Isaias, 53, 4-7.

Let us pray.
     Look graciously upon Your household, almighty God, we beseech You, that by Your grace we may be governed in body, and by Your protection safeguarded in mind. Through Jesus Christ, thy Son our Lord, Who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end. R. Amen.

How far to go to find Jesus: Fourth Sunday of Lent Sermon (Fr. Saavedra)

Delivered on Sunday, March 6th, 2016

Show Details

    Jesus therefore went up into a mountain, and there he sat with his disciples. Now the pasch, the festival day of the Jews, was near at hand. 


    When Jesus therefore had lifted up his eyes, and seen that a very great multitude cometh to him, he said to Philip: Whence shall we buy bread that these may eat?  GOSPEL (John 6:1-15.)

    Audio:   De Profundis

    Offertory music that was sung by Our Lady Queen of Martyrs' choir on this Sunday. 

    De Profundis is one of the Seven Penitential Psalms. Antonio Salieri (1750-1825) composed this simple yet moving setting in 1815. 

    A seminarian once told the choir director that as the psalm progressed with its growing dynamics, the hair was rising on the back of his neck. You must experience this in the solemnity of a church ceremony to get the full effect of it's beauty.

    The style of this composition is called Faux Bourdon, a type of polyphonic psalmody. The original Faux Bourdon was written in the 16th century by Carolus Andreas. It has been arranged as you hear it here to fit the text of this fourth responsory of Matins, and is sung at Tenebrae in the parish of Our Lady Queen of Martyrs.
